It has been remiss of Ian and I not to thank the helpful and supportive staff at Ski Travel Co for helping with re-booking an Air Canada flight due to visa issues in Feb this year.
Everything during our holiday to Banff was perfect and we had a fabulous time. So much so we have forgotten that it might not have turned out that way.
Thank you for such prompt and professional support. We look forward to booking with you again.
Kind regards
Kathy and Ian
