It also included the transportation to and from airport, 4-5 tours, as well as 25% off golf,spa etc. There were many Buy one/get one free adventures. Is that the same too?
I was planning to go directly through the airlines for group rates and planning to add Travel Insurance for all parties on cancellations.
I also have the number of rooms or total nights for the bonuses of private parties in the contract. I haven't sign it yet but I am wondering what the difference is between the TA and directly with the hotel. I thought it was better to go directly with the hotel with the contract. The only deposit that is needed is the bride and groom's room payment upfront. Then all other parties can reserve up to 45 days before event. There is a link that they will give you so that it can be posted on the wedding website for individuals to reserve their own rooms at one night's deposit. Our party is planning to stay 3-5 nights.
Hey Ashnic, you may want to PM this to Tammy, in case she doesn't come over to the the MP forum very often. BUT...I used Tammy Host as my TA, and she was able to include in my contract all the anemities that the hotel was offering. So, I'm getting free stuff per the number of nights/rooms I book, the palace passport, etc etc. I think it's been great to work with a TA - first, I didn't have to negogiate the contract myself, second, she got me a better rate than the hotel was offering me, by a fair amount...and, the TA takes care of all problems and reminding people to pay their deposits, etc. She can also book the flights for me, which is really nice. She also arranges all transfers to and from the airport, and even got these included in our room price!
It's really up to you which way you go, but I will say my experience with Tammy has been great!!!!
