Typical group rate discount

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

FH and I have just started planning our DW and I have a question about group rates. What kind of a discount can you typically expect? We went to see a travel agent last weekend who didn't seem all that enthusiastic and we were told that the only "group rate" that we would get would be a guarantee that spots would be reserved for our guests to book (no price discount). This was really surprising because we think that we will have between 50 and 75 people attending our wedding (we're looking at booking an AI in Punta Cana). Is this normalhuh.gif?? We were also surprised because my FILs have booked a ton of vacations with this person and figured that we would get some type of a deal.

 

I have emailed Weddings by Oceans to get some information but we're still open to shopping around for a TA if anyone has any suggestions.

We got around $100 off per package that was purchased for each room booked. Then through the tour operator me and my FI will get a rebate of $50 per room booked after the wedding. I would really suggest looking into a travel agent with destination wedding experience. I know there are a few on here. But just the tips and tricks we got from ours was worth it, especially when trying to pick a location!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
