Reasonable expectation for $$ from Hartford

Recommended Posts

Has anybody flown out of Hartford to Punta Cana?

 

What would a reasonable expectation for prices be per person (a range is fine) for flight and accomodations or a package at a 4.5 star resort like the Melia Caribe Tropical?

 

My MOH is planning to go soon to get quotes of vacation packages to join us for our wedding. I just want to set a reasonable expectation of what to expect. I've been so focused on getting prices from Canada, I totally forgot she was flying out of Hartford.

 

Is it too early to be getting prices in the US? Any tour operators she should avoid?

most US carriers do not publish rates more than about 10 months in advance. Can she possibly fly out of NYC or Boston instead of Hartford? She might have more options, since the Hartford airport is smaller than the NYC and Boston airports

She lives less than 20 minutes from the Hartford airport. She would probably spend more in gas and parking driving to Boston or Hartford than the extra cost from Hartford.

oh okay, well I have her check with a TA about rates, they might not be published yet, but TA's get them earlier than the general public I believe.

Thank you for your help.

 

I just gave Apple Vacations in the US a call and they checked for me and told me they don't have them in the system to try back at the end of the month.

My MOH has been quoted $1400 pp taxes in from Hartford for 7 days at the Melia in Punta Cana. Her and her husband think that because of the rising fuel prices they want to lock in and go with this price.

 

I sure hope that it is a decent price.

 

Christine thanks so much for your advice.

We live 10 minutes from Albany INternational Airport.

We save a combined 600-700 dollars by driving 3 hours to NYC and parking instead of flying out of ALB. Just something to look into. It could save a bunch of cash for them.

I completely agree. I tried explaining that to her and was told it's not worth the stress of getting to Boston or NY or the time it takes to get there. She's willing to spend the extra, so I am not going to push it. I put it out there and she didn't want to do that. She's almost as hard-headed as I can be sometimes, so I know I can't change her mind.

 

Thanks though.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
