    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 normal?? 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!
