Zurich Transfers

I have a group going on a River Cruise next month and I'm looking for a reliable transfer company with pick up at the airport and drop off at their hotel. They are all coming in on different days, so I do not need a large vehicle. It has been suggested to have them take the train. Easy walk and easy on/off, plus drops near local hotels. A few of my clients want to do this to save money, but the others want to be taken to their hotels.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!See More

FIT Europe with Teenager

I have a mother and her teenage daughter who are high end clients.  They want to stay 2 nights London, 2 nights Paris, and also see Amsterdam, Switzerland, Austria and Germany ending up in Hamburg.  They have 2 - 3 weeks and want to travel by "upscale train."  Is there a company that can book all of this and pay commission?  What would you suggest for sites for them to see that would be interesting for a teenager?  Thanks for your help.See More

Booking a connecting flight on a separate ticket

I am in St. Louis and have clients who are flying into London and back from Paris. The air from St. Louis was ridiculous - like $1800 round trip, even through a consolidator. It was over $2000 direct with the airlines. I found air out of Chicago for $1200 each, and she wanted to buy that and then figure out how to get back and forth between St. Louis and Chicago. I told her this is a bit risky and we need to allow plenty of time to go through customs, go out of the secure area, check in with the airline, go back through security, etc. We found an American flight back from Chicago for $130 one-way, and we have over 5 hours, so we're reasonably comfortable with that. There are lots of flights daily between St. Louis and Chicago, so it won't be a complete disaster if they miss it. My question is on the outbound from St. Louis to Chicago. They are flying United from Chicago to London and from Paris back to Chicago. Can I book them a domestic flight from STL to Chicago on United, arriving…See More
