The public (and even a lot of travel agents) have no idea as to why prices will "spike" for no logical reason. Well, this time it's not the fault of anyone stealing the cookie from the cookie jar, but the cookie creating higher prices to take more out of your travel clients' pockets.
What's a cookie? It's a piece of data (sort of like commissions hiding in all products and services) that retains memory of past searches. When those searches are visited repeatedly, as far as travel goes, the cookie "remembers" the price from the last visit to the site in question.
With so many sites (we won't mention their names) doing searches, clients need to know simple things like this: CLEAR OUT THE COOKIES and YOU GET A MORE REALISTIC PRICE POINT. Of course we all know nothing is guarantteed as far as a price quote unless it's booked. And the earlier the booking occurs, the better chances our clients will be saving more and spending less....so says the cookie jar (travel industry) to the consumer who knows how to clear out the cookies :-)

All the best, and let's do all we can in this great momentum phase make this company of YTB TRAVEL NUMBER ONE ON THE PLANET! For those attending the Baltimore regional, share this with those you know. (Bet Expedia and Priceline and Hotwire aren't telling their customers this "cookie secret.")
blessin's and stay safe in the humid hot weather everyone!
