How will a Travel Agent engage with the Chat team?

  • Travel Agents who are in the VAX VacationAccess booking engine will have a chat button located on the right hand side of the page. The chat button will let them know they are engaged with UPRV.

What types of questions can be asked and answered via CHAT?

  • Product and package component questions (i.e. which hotels offer the Free Universal Express™ Unlimited ride access?)
  • Pricing and availability on the package (i.e. what is the total cost for my party?)
  • Basic non-transactional questions (i.e. what time is check-in?)
  • Policies and Procedures on the package (i.e. where do I pick up my tickets?)
  • Trouble shooting (i.e. can I use my international credit card?)
  • VAX troubleshooting and navigation (i.e. what does this error message mean?)

What are the limitations with Chat?

  • Universal Orlando Representatives are not able to take credit card information from a Travel Agent or perform financial transactions directly through Chat
  • Travel Agents are referred to the Guest Contact Center if they need to change hotel, tickets, lead guest name, or travel dates. Travel Agents must also call the GCC, should they need to cancel a vacation package
