    Just to share.. I went through a TA who was able to give much better rates than the resort was for a group.

    We are staying at Dreams Punta Cana and will probably have close to 50ppl if not more.. we reserved 10 guaranteed to hold the group rate.

    Deluxe Room
    Single (meaning one person in room only): $1305/pp for 7 nights
    Double (meaning two ppl in room only): $886/pp for 7 nights = $1772 room
    Triple (meaning three ppl in room only): $875/pp for 7 nights = $2625 room

    These rates were all inclusive including taxes, fees, etc and include xfers to and from the airport.

    If you are interested, I am happy to give anyone info for my TA (PM me). She is great and does everything over the phone so your location doesn't really matter.

      You can also price match a vacation from one travel company to another. In the past, I've price matched a vacation, received the price matched total, and plus 10% percent the difference. If there's a particular company or TA that you want to use, but their vacations rate are too high. If you can provide proof of lower package, they will price match in order to keep your business. I also like using BookIt.com® Travel Specials: Discounted Hotels, Resorts & Vacation Deals. I normally can find packages with them much lower than most TAs. The only website that was lower than BookIt.com® Travel Specials: Discounted Hotels, Resorts & Vacation Deals was beachdestintations.com. Their website looked a little sketchy to me. So, I spoke to my TA at bookit.com about the lower rate. He was able to pricematch it.
      FYI, you can also contact BookIt.com® Travel Specials: Discounted Hotels, Resorts & Vacation Deals for Group Hotel Reservations by BookIt.com. Their group reservation department comes with a free group coordinator. I believe you can input your information and they will contact you with a quote. Or, you can call directly. Here's the contact info for my TA: Steve @ 1-888-782-9722 x.6244.
