I wonder if anyone else recently received a 2013 full color brochure (two zebras on the cover) featuring "Highlights of South Africa" 20 days From $4795 including airfare from Miami; "Dubrovnik & Beyond" 15 days, from $4795 (airfare from Miami) and "Costa Rica Treasures" 13 days from $4795 (airfare from Miami). The June price for Costa Rica land only is $1795, so that would be $3,000 for air from Miami.

Obviously, there is an error in the price, missed by the proofreader, but I wonder if the same error is in the brochures targeted for other areas.

I wouldn't worry about this ..... there are usually errors in GCT catalogs.  Go on line or call them to discover the "real deal".

I think that Grand Circle Travel does a great job with almost eveything they do. The one aspect that annoys me and causes frequent misunderstandings is the inconsistency of information presented in different media, or, sometimes, in different locations within the same medium. I spent a lot of time ranting about this on a different thread a few months ago so I'll not go into detail here. I will just suggest that GCT needs a new department -- The Department of Information Consistency.

I never noticed incorrect prices in other catalogues or brochures. I wonder about this one, not only because of the price errors, but for the limited information.

There are three trips (not interested in any of them) and the only airport given is Miami. Although I live in Florida, I would not fly to South Africa or to Croatia from Miami. I would fly from Atlanta or New York  since there are several flights a day to Atlanta from my regional airport -- two a day to Miami, which costs more than Atlanta.. It seems like odd marketing move and a waste of printing and mail money. I was just wondering if they did this in other areas of the country.
