the reason is that the input field named 'destination' has a value
which prevents it being set by the previous request:

(:input text destination "{$:destination}" size=40:)

change to (:input text destination size=40:) and it works.

you don't seem to use a {$:destination} page text variable on the
target page anywhere.

In fact the other fields like (:input text name=$:traveler2 size=40:)
don't load their input value  from a PTV either I think, in which
case you could use (:input text traveler2 size=40:) instead.
(unless you use this form as a edit form as well, but it does not
appear as such)
