I have not spoken to an agent yet, but thought I'd throw this out to the community to see if anyone has done this before.
I've traveled 4 times with Gate 1- escorted and independent. I am planning my trip for next spring and it will involve a return to three citites- Venice, Florence, and Rome. I already have a place to stay in Rome and don't need a hotel, but there is no way to book a return flight from Rome without adding a hotel through the Vacation Builder tool.
Does anyone know if an agent can arrange to delete the hotel in Rome, and still have my flight home from Rome, 6 days after I leave my hotel in Florence, or do I HAVE to book a hotel through Gate 1?
Thanks in advance!

If you call them I think they can work that out.

IMO: Don't use that vacation builder anyway not enough variables can be included. Get your own air. Use them for the hotels by not adding air.

Thanks!

I've used the vacation builder without any problems twice now (I've also taken one escorted and one partially escorted tour with G1). I check flights on Google flights and Kayak first to make sure I am seeing the flights I want and then research the available hotels on Trip Advisor, Google maps (I care most about location as I elect to walk everywhere 90% of the time) and the hotels' own websites. Only once did I find a better deal on a hotel on the hotel's own website. Usually Gate 1's prices are much better. I supplemented last month's trip to Spain with day tours and excursions from Viator as well as a couple from Gate 1. I find the vacation builder to be a great resource for someone who needs to pay off my trip over several months. I refuse to use credit cards because I prefer to have the whole thing paid in full before I leave.

Wow WHOA! I have NO idea who calexander is or how I am logged into their account from my lap top, but I am the Original Poster! YIKES!
Sorry for the confusion. Mods- any help here?! I can't seem to be able to log into my own account and no idea what's happening here.

Update- no way to log in and out of my original account, so I just changed this one. Sorry to whoever "calexander" is/was!

I had same problem a couple of days ago. I tried to sign in my normal way and the system logged me in as calexander. That has stopped.
