Very professional and eficient was Martin Mievis

Martin Mievis helped me a lot to find my desired booking that required a multicity destination. He even researched it and after a week I had the perfect booking. I give him 5 stars because he was very friendly and profesional and efficient. Last year it was the same. He found the perfect booking.

I have received a phone call just now…

I have received a phone call just now from the company, and I would like to come back on my previous review. There is so much red tape to cut through, so many documents to fill out, bookings that went wrong and so on that I've gotten over-frustrated, but actually the service of connections is very well and the follow-up thorough. I wish to appologise to the staffmember.

We've been using the amazingly helpful travel agents at Connections for over 15 years. We can always count on them to find good flights, car rentals and accommodation.

We have just spent 3 amazing weeks in Canada. Connections helped us with the flight reservations, the booking of the RV, and helped us with the travel route we wanted to do. Wow, the people from Connections really love and know their job! They emailed us regularly to ask whether we needed anything else, whether everything was fine, … a real personal touch. Thank you Connections!

No worries!

No practical issues. The ones I had, had nothing to do with Connections. It is nice to make a long trip, where you will see and visit a lot, that everything is well arranged. No surprises in the hotels, at the airports, and so on. In addition, I received a tailor-made travel guide with many tips and practical information. I made good use of this!

Date of experience : August 17, 2023

Hi! Thanks for your feedback! We're delighted to hear that your trip went smoothly with no practical issues, and it's reassuring to know that the arrangements made by Connections were well-executed. If you have any more travel plans or need assistance in the future, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you for choosing Connections for your trip, and we hope you had a wonderful time exploring and visiting new places! Regards, Kevin Connections Team

We've gone to the United States twice…

We've gone to the United States (Orlando and New York) with Connections, the first trip was perfect and was a blast! The second trip had some issues with the plane (like not being seated together until staff was luckily able to have people agree to swap seats) but for the rest, it was still a really fun and well-managed trip.

Ulaanbaatar Concern

After a perfect flight from Frankfurt to Ulaanbaatar with MIAT (Mongolian Airlines), the existence of which we were not aware, arranged by Caroline, my wife and I decided to return a week before originally planned. We were able to arrange this early return flight in Ulaanbaatar and were totally surprised that Caroline phoned us in Ulaanbaatar to make sure this change in flight was authorized by us. Such concern was not expected but greatly appreciated.

Online payment didn’t work the first time

Online payment didn’t work the first time with Belfius icon. Payment appeared as in progress on my bank account. I had to call my bank to cancel this payment. 2 days later I tried again using another option “bankcontact” and this time it worked well, but due to the delay I could have missed the promotion.

Boarding and unboarding take upto 30 minutes with a long time queuing. Annoying that for the price of the ticket, they still send you regular spam mail to upgrade or change seat at a cost.

Date of experience : November 10, 2023

Dear Eric, Thank you for sharing your recent experience. We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused by the extended boarding and disembarking times. Please understand that, unfortunately, these delays can occur and they are beyond our control. We believe in providing our customers with additional choices and opportunities to tailor their travel to suit their preferences. We understand that not every customer may choose to utilize these options, but we want to ensure that we offer the opportunity. Thank you for your feedback, we look forward to serving you on your future travels. Best regards, Ilse Team Connections

NY package Connections

We went on a city trip to NY organised by Connections. They really helped us out with the selection of the hotel and things to do there. The recommended hotel was very good, just like they described it.

Dear Katie, Glad to read that you enjoyed the Summer Break in the Big Apple ! It remains a magical destination. Thank you for the feedback and trust in Connections. Kind regards, Tine Verreck Customer Care Manager

Excellent Service...

A company is good or excellent because of the people it employs... You are as good as the people you trust... Noémie is an excellent agent that always helps and goes the extra mile for your needs. Connections is lucky to have people like that.

Refund of cancelled flight due to covid pandemic

Japan have been banning overseas visitors ever from the start of the outbreak so my outward flight to Osaka was cancelled. Connections rightfully managed to retrieve my money back from the japanese Airlines and fully refunded me. I have been privileged to enjoy connections professionalism since 2009 and this Time i owe them a Big thank you.

How the Key Bridge Collapsed in Baltimore: Maps and Photos

By Weiyi Cai ,  Agnes Chang ,  Lauren Leatherby ,  Lazaro Gamio ,  Leanne Abraham and Scott Reinhard

On Tuesday, a major bridge in Baltimore collapsed into the water seconds after it was struck by a cargo ship, sending vehicles on the bridge into the river below. The ship lost power and issued a mayday call shortly before it hit the bridge.

connections travel shop

The ship, a 948-foot-long cargo vessel called Dali, was about a half hour into its journey toward Colombo, Sri Lanka, when it hit a main pillar of the bridge. All crew members are safe, according to the ship’s owners.

Follow our live coverage .

A mayday call from the ship gave officials enough time to stop traffic at both ends of the bridge. The waters where the bridge collapsed are about 50 feet deep. By Tuesday morning, six construction workers who had been fixing potholes on the bridge remained missing as divers and other emergency workers on boats and helicopters continued to search for them. Two others had been rescued, and one was in the hospital.

The New York Times

The Francis Scott Key Bridge was opened in 1977 and carried more than 12.4 million vehicles last year. The bridge was one of the three major ways to cross the Patapsco River and formed part of Baltimore’s beltway.

The Port of Baltimore is a major trade hub that handled a record amount of foreign cargo last year. It is an especially important destination — the nation’s largest by volume last year — for deliveries of cars and light trucks.

Overall, Baltimore was the 17th biggest port in the United States in 2021, ranked by total tons, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. The bridge collapse brought marine traffic there to a standstill, with seven cargo or tanker ships stranded in the harbor as of Tuesday afternoon.

Gov. Wes Moore declared a state of emergency for Maryland and said that his office was in close communication with Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. transportation secretary. The White House issued a statement saying that President Biden had been briefed on the collapse.
