    Also if there is a schedule change CHECK the flights. The computer will reschedule you if there are cancellations or changes. But it is not always as smart as it should be.

    I have had the computer automatically book me an outbound connecting flight that LEFT BEFORE my inbound flight arrived.

    I have had computer push my connecting time to the next day because of loads, allowable connecting times, and flight schedule changes. If the NEW schedule does NOT work, call. ASAP to fix it at NO charge. I have discussed having them refund my ticket because that wasn't going to work, but that conversation often seems to assist them in finding a solution.

    This works great for reward tickets too. I have booked the cheap miles awards as soon as they become available, I pick an acceptable routing that has cheap miles, even if it is not optimal. There is a really go chance the schedule will change. Hopefully you can use that schedule change to your advantage.

    I cannot stress this enough, it is strongly advised that you have the current schedule available that you want already figured out so that you don't have to take what they offer. You can suggest that they move you to what you want.

    One other thing I just did is I changed my reservation at the Quality Inn in Estes Park (which has very good reviews, btw) to Rams Horn Resort. Cost me a fortune- way, way more than I intended to spend- but I couldn't bear the thought of spending 7 nights in just a room (it was really bothering me- I am so spoiled with staying in timeshares! LOL!) and I like staying at resorts as opposed to individual homes (like on Home Away). I tried Redweek and also a Worldmark owner I rented from before in West Yellowstone, but the Redweek Worldmark owner didn't have my dates and the other Worldmark owner said there were only a few random dates available.

    So- I took the plunge! I must say, I have never, ever had such a crazy time with planning a vacation! Nor have I ever put this much time into it! OMG! I am exhausted! LOL!:whooopie:
