ATTN: fellow Canadians..an AI pkg question..
Posted 01 October 2008 - 11:28 PM
Especially to any of you travelling (or travelled) in July. The prices I got quoted seem kind of high..I'm wondering if my guests will be better off waiting or booking flights and hotels seperately...Almost everyone is a student, so they can't really afford anything crazy expensive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

From Toronto we paid $2,000 for a week at the Riu Palace Mexico in RM in Feb.
I have paid $1,400 for a week in August (Hurricane season) and I believe that was in Cancun at one of the smaller resorts.
Booked both through Itravel2000.
Also did one trip where we used aeroplan points for flights and just booked the resort so did not take a package...it ended up being about $500 cheaper, and typically the chartered flights are around $500-$600 in the packages (per the person I talked to) so it does end up being cheaper as a flight from Toronto can be up to $1,200 depending on when you travel and book. Also when we booked separately we had to take taxis from the airport and that was an extra $60 each way.
It seems like any 4 or 5 star resort is around $1700-2000. If the majority of guests are students, there is a student travel agency called Travelcuts...they give you fairly significant discounts if you have a student card.
Hope that helps!

Keep in mind that prices from Vancouver to the Mayan Riviera are more expensive (supposedly, I've never looked into it myself) since it's quite a bit farther. I think this is why many people from the west coast travel to the Mexican west coast (Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, etc)

I went to Dreams PV from Vancouver in September a little while back and it was only $1200 (taxes in). It's cheaper to fly to the the west coast than the east, so check that out if $$ is really an issue.
