Delta Vacations Launches No Surprise Pricing

New pricing program where the advertised vacation price will include all hotel and flight taxes and fees

(EDINA, Minn., Nov 29, 2011) — In response to travel agent and consumer feedback, Delta Vacations has implemented "No-Surprise Pricing" with advertised prices representing the complete price, including all hotel and flight taxes and fees required by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

As a convenience to customers, Delta Vacations has implemented this new pricing structure well before the new disclosure policy is required by the U.S. Department of Transportation, which has set a deadline of January 24, 2012.

The new "No-surprise Pricing" will be displayed throughout all advertising, as well as deals pages on the Delta Vacations website, and ensures that customers will not be 'surprised' by hundreds of dollars in added government taxes and fees.

Travel shoppers may notice an increase in the advertised prices of offers and promotions from Delta Vacations, however because all of the fees are now included, they will see that Delta Vacations prices are comparable to their competitors, once their taxes and fees are added later in the booking process. Until others adapt to this pricing format, Delta Vacations brands offer the benefit of viewing the total package price on vacations up front, from the very beginning of the booking process.

For more information on no surprise pricing, or to book a vacation through Delta Vacations, contact a travel agent, visit www.deltavacations.com, or call 1-800-800-1504.
