BE AWARE: An instant BUDGET BLOWER....any ideas?
Posted 05 August 2008 - 03:22 PM
Just a quick question:
Are any of you dealing with paying for day passes for guests that are not staying at your chosen all-inclusive hotel?
My FI and are finding that although we have picked a hotel, some of our guests are thinking of chosing to stay at other hotels. We believe that this is well within their right..it is their vacation and they are paying, so they should be able to stay wherever they want to....
The problem is that we have to purchase a day pass $100 per person for them to attend our wedding if they are not staying at the same resort. It is a factor that can be quite costly and a factor that we did not consider.
How are you handling this, or does anyone have any ideas?
This could really BLOW our budget....

I was a little put off by this when she told me ... I took the time to reseach the different resorts in the area, the prices and travel agents and choose the best ones. If my friend doesn't want to book her trip this way... fine, but she will be responsible for all aditional costs. I'm not going to spend more money on the guests from another resort than the ones I will be spending my entire week with.

You picked the hotel where "your" wedding is taking place. If they choose to not stay at the place where the wedding will be, then they will need to pay for a day pass.
It's just like having your wedding/reception local and you tell them the reception is at one resturant and they go to another. They would have to pay for their own dinner. You're not going to say, oh it's ok that you don't want to go to the resturant everyone else is going too.....please let me pay for your dinner to where ever you choose.
I just think that you told them where it's going to be. If they stayed at the hotel you choose, they would not have to pay. That is something they will have to take into consideration when booking their trip.

We are staying the the Iberostar Grand, if the guests stay at the other Iberostar hotels it's 75 for the wedding pass.
I don't expect everyone to stay at the Grand due to the price to stay there.
