You would think a bad economy means people aren't traveling, but some travel agents in Greenville say that is not the case!

Qioxte Travel Agency in Greenville agents say it haven't seen a decline in people traveling, instead its seen changes in travelers habits such as people booking at the last minute, only two to three weeks in advance.

The agency says people also look for all inclusive packages so they'll know up front how much they'll pay.

These things help to put people's mind at ease in a bad economy. The bad economy is also leading to a lot of bargains.

He says some of the biggest deals right now are in the Caribbean and at Disney World.

You can find some packages that are less than half of what you would've paid last year.

    When I had to travel to another state last year for my grandmothers funeral, the airline socked it to me with a very high fare, lost my luggage and canceled three flights to my stop over due to mechanical difficulties. I will walk before I ever give them one more dime of my money. They are poorly run and could care less about the flying public or their customer accountability.
