I bought tickets at Spectrum Travel for many years and I think what you said is incorrect, my sister bought ticket to Vietnam with her 5 years old daughter and she paid the same price for herself and her daughter because they bought United Airline with the package (5 days hotel in Vietnam) and because of that package children price is the same with adult price. I think you should ask your agent again if you're unsure about your price because the ticket price is different from week days to weekend and also depend on which airline, too. So which airline did you pick? You sure it nor United Airline??????
