Let Us Help You Get There

Sunday, October 4, 2009

Are you dreaming of the perfect vacation but have no idea where to start planning? Clueless about costs? And not sure what to do once you get there? Let us plan your trip for you. Starting Oct. 25, veteran Post Travel columnists Carol Sottili and K.C. Summers will bring their combined expertise to a new weekly feature, Going Our Way. Tell them where you want to go and what your budget is, and they'll tell you how to get the most from your travel dollar.

As The Post's longtime What's the Deal? columnist, Carol knows how to track down a travel bargain better than anyone. And if Travel Q&A maven K.C. hasn't been there, she knows insiders who have been. Together, they've got the travel chops to get you where you want to go.

We're looking for readers who are interested in being part of this column. Send an e-mail to travel@washpost.com answering the following questions. Be sure to put "GOING OUR WAY" in the subject line.

-- Name, age, address, phone(s), e-mail.

-- How many people are going?

-- Where do you want to go?

-- What type of trip do you have in mind? (E.g.: family vacation, romantic getaway, solo vacation, long weekend, road trip, adventure trip, reunion.)

-- How much time do you want to spend away (including travel time)?

-- What's your preferred method of transportation (air, rail, bus, car, cruise or combination)?

-- What type of lodging do you prefer?

-- What are your interests?

-- What is your budget?

We'll follow up with you after the trip, to see how our recommendations worked out and what tips you might have for others.
