    Since I have already sent out STD's, including a "welcome" with all of our TA information and such, is it ok to include a passport reminder on a business card size printed piece of paper? And then send a welcome letter with a luggage tage closer to the date?

    I would say yes. I think any reminder to get those passports is a great idea!

      One of our inserts was an accomodations & other info card which told people to go to our website, to book thru whatever number etc.

      At the bottom we added:

      NOTE: Please remember that everyone must have a passport to enter and exit Mexico.

      So in other words - yes, I think not only can you do it I think you should do it. This is also something that should go up on your website if you have one.

        I don't think you can remind people "too much" about getting their passports.

          I agree! I don't think you can remind them enough. I would hate for someone to book, then forget they have to have a passport and not be able to go! That would suck!

            Hey! This is a little off your topic - What sort of "welcome" did you include in your STD? I'm getting married in Feb 2008 and my STD's are currently in the works. However, in the meantime we got quoted a really great package for our resort which is like $2000/couple cheaper than any other price I have seen. So, I don't want to miss out on this price but need people to start booking. I was thinking I could out some sort of letter in my STD so if people wanted to book this early they could. I wish I could just send out the actual invites now but they aren't ready and I can't just cancel the STD's.

            sorry for babbling....

              There is no such thing as babbling on this board!
              I went through the same thing with a special that the resort was running through a certain time period. My TA actually put together a "welcome information letter" from her with all of her contact information in it and with the resort special pricing along with the deadline. Along with her letter, Bryan and I sat down and came up with our own welcome letter and mailed both at the same time. It seemed to have worked really well......We had 30 something people book with the special that they were running! We expect some stragglers as it gets closer to October, but we had people booking for the trip that we didn't even expect! If you want, you can pm me your email, and i can send you copies of both of our letters.
              I would highly reccomend doing this if there is any special pricing deadlines involved!
