    I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct location so if you need to move it ok.

    So I was wondering if anyone is running into this with the TA? We got quotes about 2 weeks ago and our TA encourged us to hold 25 seats on a flight so people would be locked in the rate, the price may go up $10 for charges. I was also quoted insurance prices which were $64 for under 34 and $83 under 59.

    Now I had my mom and brother book the trip and my brothers trip was increased by $75 and my moms was increased by $87.30 I could see ok maybe the hotel changed so I am waiting to hear from the TA (I did check online sites and they have not so hmm) but I am really concerned about the insurance quotes by brother who is 30 was quoted $84 but I was given a quote of $64 and my mom was quoted $108, but I was quoted $83 for her. Is it normal for insurance rates to be increase often.

    I want to be sure my guests are getting good prices, especially with the rates already being so high

      We were given group insurance rates as long as so many people booked and got the insurance through them.

      As for the trip, we booked 10 seats in order to get group rates, and we put peoples names in for them that we already knew were coming. Then as they offically booked themselves, they paid their deposit and that went towards my parents trip since they paid the deposit. A couple days before we booked the taxes went up by $10 a person, and then about a month later they went up by another $30 because of the fuel costs. The base price that we were quoted is still good for everyone that is going to book, but the taxes can fluctuate. Actually, the taxes dropped recently by $150 per person since they took the fuel surcharge off, but I don't think it is a permenant thing.

        I did reserve 25 seats and we are still seeing pretty big price changes around $110. I thought maybe it would change by 10 - 20 but 100 seems high.

          That does seem high. I would definately check with your TA. Something is not right.
