We do not share specific pick-up information on our web site, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pick-up points without ours or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pick-up points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pick-up points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
