Good information to review from our team at DMI!

Are you anticipating travel in the New Year? Planning on bringing your cat, duck, iguana or other favorite pet to ease travel anxiety?

You may need to reconsider your plans. This new ruling by the U.S. DoT limits the definition of a service animal to dog. Other pets and emotional support animals can still be transported by airlines subject to each individual airline's rules and restrictions for pet transport but do not meet the definition of service animal. The new rule will take effect 30 days from the final publishing in the federal register, anticipated to be in early 2021. The official press release and links to more information can be found here:

Niagara Falls' Iconic Maid of the Mist Experience Just Got Better

The awe-inspiring experience of the Maid of the Mist is a long-time favorite.

There is still time in the season to experience the falls in a new way and socially distancing protocols are in place.

Wouldn't you like a little getaway?

Niagara Falls’ nearly 175-year-old Maid of the Mist tour is now being powered by two fully electric passenger boats, making for both a quieter and more environmentally friendly ride from the base of the American Falls into the basin of Canada’s Horseshoe Falls — the largest of the three falls ...

Have you heard about "Book with Confidence?"

This may be the best thing to happen in the travel industry in years.

Most of our travel partners - airlines, hotels, tour operators, cruise lines, and more - are waiving change fees which allows you to book now but still have flexibility later if things don't go quite the way you expect.

Conditions vary between companies and are rapidly changing but our experienced team is here, staying on top of the changes, and is ready to help you navigate and find the travel solution that works best for you.

Stay tuned. We'll be featuring some messages from our favorite partners about what they are doing to enable you to
continue to plan your dreams.

-Our hours of operation and staffing will remain unchanged.
-Outside of normal business hours, our 24-hour emergency hotline remains available for critical needs.
