    speaking of travel offices on base

    Advertisements
    My neighbor was saying something to me about how the travel office on base can get you cheaper plane tickets and stuff like that, is that true?

    Sometimes. I usually have better luck scouring the internet or going through AAA.

    It maybe different at each base....but at Pearl Harbor....all the "official" travel is done through the SATO office.

    For leisure PERSONAL travel ~ it is Travel Connections. They are generally NOT busy at all.

    Often times you can et great deals on tickets....other times it is cheaper to go online. When I have needed to plan a trip...I look online first to get an idea and then go to the Travel Connections ~ so I have an idea of what the "going" rate is.

    We only have SATO here also, we haven't been back to visit the states in awhile so I have no clue where to look for cheap tickets!
