    Sorry if this has been posted before, I've searched like crazy but can't find anything.

    I know there are websites that alert you if there's a change in the price of airfare, but are there any websites that alert you if there's a change in the price of package vacations?

    We're flying out of Vancouver to the Grand Palladium in Mexico and I search all the different websites twice a week to see if there's any price changes. So it would be great if there was some website that would alert me of price changes.

    Anyone know of one?

      Do you have a TA? usually they keep an eye on this for you.

      I don't know of any that do this with package deals, but it would be good to know.

        You can set that up through American I know and also the website farecompare.com will let you set up alerts too!

          We don't have a TA. We talked to a couple and they all came back with group rates higher then the prices on expedia, escapes, etc.!

          I went to fare compare but it only lets you watch flight prices. I'm wanting something that will watch package prices (flight plus a specific hotel).

            Sounds like you didn't find the right TA. You might want to give it another shot. My TA beats expedia everytime. Maybe the canadian ladies can chime in if they had different experiences. There are so many perks to a TA. And if you get a cheaper rate too, it's even better.

            I posted on my website that I didn't suggest using expedia, etc. Several friends still searched these trying to find a better deal. They couldn't.

            Planning a DW has sold me on TAs. A good one can save you money, get you upgrades, give your guests someone to ask questions, take a load off you, allow just deposits to be made, refund if prices drop, etc. There are 3 TAs on the forum. maybe they can help you out.

              Try Yapta.com, you can save flights in your "my trips" and then if the price drops it will email you. I just starting using it today.
