      TA Jennifer posted a great thread about all the work your TA can do for you.

      If you do decide to go with a TA, I would highly recommend one who specializes in weddings. There are several on the forum, but I'm thinking TA Jill specializes in Dreams Cancun? Plus, it's great when we can support a fellow BDWer!

              Welcome! i didn't have to pay anything for my TA. She said it's the repeat business that she hopes to gain from the guest booking.

                I wonder if in Canada it is different. We don't pay the TA, they earn a cut off of the bookings... just like brokers. The tour operator pays them...so I guess we do but it is worked into the rate.

                  I am not paying my travel agent - he is out of Miami (i live in Massachusetts) he's been great so far!

                    OHHHH. I see. I never even considered my TA charging me. Glad she didn't.

                      Welcome! Get a good TA, it should make you experience so much easier! Everything varies, but you are asking the right people, there are TAs on the forum and many of us have used them and others! Good luck to you:)
