Help! Need some advice on travel agent and prices!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

My fiance and I are trying to book our wedding at the Azul Fives for February 21st, 2009. We are looking at around 30 guests staying for 3,4 or 5 nights.

 

The group rate my current travel agent gets for this weekend is $827/person for a 4 night stay without airfare...when we do it ourselves through a travel website, we find prices around $40 less per night. So in essence the group rate she is quoting us is much more expensive in than if they just book the rooms themselves ($160 more over 4 nights)!

 

Does this make sense?

 

If not, does anyone have a travel agent they have worked with that they can highly recommend?

 

Any thoughts would be great!

There are travel agents here on BDW that would be more than happy to help you.
At the top of your screen is a banner that says "Contact a BDW Travel Agent". Just look for the agent that represents your area & send her a private message. Hope that helps you! Good Luck!

Another thing to consider is if the packages are comparable. We always use Liberty Travel and the pices our agent quotes us include things like transfers, all taxes, etc etc.

I second what Jason just mentioned. Taxes for Punta Cana are pretty high but they were included when we booked with our TA and so were transfers. Plus if anything goes wrong I have someone I can call directly and so will my guests. I also use a TA from Liberty Travel

Many brides have mentioned being very happy with Tammy, the host of this forum (Wright travel Agency, look up her usename, Tammy Host)

 

Then again, I'm sure if they weren't happy they wouldn't post it here on her forum wink.gif But I'm sure they are all happy, somebody great enough to put this forum together must be a fabulous agent.

 

I wish I had used a BDW travel agent!

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
