i've been planning a trip to europe for this spring, but i've needed some help along the way. however, almost every person i've contacted from the 'travel help' section has yet to read my inquiries. some messages i've sent a month ago trying to get more detailed information. so basically i'm wondering if there's a way we can know who is actively checking inquiries so we know who to contact. i leave for my trip in less than 20 days and i have so many questions, but it seems like i'm asking all the wrong people. help.
Travel helpers are members who volunteer to list themselves to help others in areas they know about. They may or may not know the questions you asked. Since it's only a voluntary job, they do not feel obligated to help the others and thus the lukewarm response that you got.
Have you tried to ask the questions here in the forums? If you haven't, post your questions in a new thread. You'll get more/faster response here. Good luck.
I agree with Hien. Try the forums first. If you nominate the country your topic is about, the travel helpers for that country will be notified as well.
