Competitve prices and great communication

Great communication and competitive pricing listed clearly. I noticed that the booking didn't have some details so I informed them and they forwarded on the information. So far so good, and the price that I got was very competitive, not the cheapest online but would rather deal with a company that has good communication than a company that doesn't respond and the price was still good when compared to most of the transfer market.
