We are off to Savannah on Wednesday for a weeks vacation and the Great Slow Travel Gathering!
We booked an apartment a year ago, when the Gathering was being arranged, with Luxury Living Savannah. Recently I had a few questions about parking and transport from the airport, so I emailed them. No reply. I email again. Then a very curt reply. A week before the rental I email again requesting some "fragrance-free" things - no air freshener, scented candles or scented soaps on the sheets. Again, no reply. I phoned today and they had received my email and passed it on to the housekeeper, but just had not replied to me.
The listing says there is a phone in the apartment. My confirmation email from a few weeks ago gives me the phone number even. Brenda, another Slow Traveler, emailed me to say there is no phone in her apartment, so I asked about that. They told me they took all the phones out of the apartments because no one uses them. I can understand that - but why did my confirmation have the phone number still? Maybe I had planned to use the phone. They did not care about that - just repeated that none of the apartments have phones.
I have always been a big supporter of vacation rental agencies - companies that understand travelers needs, can give advice and extra support. Some do, some don't. I hope the apartment is nice!

I am looking forward to seeing all the Slow Travelers at the Gathering!
