We’ve got a Classic Vacations scoop. This month it will launch a new website and online booking engine, which will allow agents to make bookings, generate statements, make payments, create options and check the status of bookings for their clients 24/7. The new site will also include hotel descriptions with virtual tours and image galleries, tour and activities descriptions and current special offers. www.classicvacations.com
