Vancouver TA Needed!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I am in desparate need of the help of an AWESOME travel agent. My fiance and I have been to three separate travel agents, all of which either stopped replying or deleted their email account and left us in the dark! We are located in Surrey, BC so any TA near us would be awesome. I really need the help of someone who is good with contacting us and replying back quickly. We are having our destination wedding on May 3, 2010 at Barcelo Maya and a lot of websites don't have prices posted for that far away. Has anyone been able to get quotes for prices for May 2010 yet? If anyone knows of a really great TA they can recommend, please help!! Thanks!

My FI and I have been trying to get quotes for January 2010 for PV. The first TA we tried gave us quotes for the Riu's, which is over the budget of most of our guests. The second TA gave us a quote for the Decameron, but because the contracts haven't been finalized, the quote is an estimate. I understand that, but the difference between the Riu Jalisco and the Decameron is $140 after taxes for the same week, and the resorts are very different.

 

We want to go to the Decameron in PV, but we don't want our guests to fork out $1800 after taxes for one week!

 

I'm beginning to wonder if its worth it to wait until the the air & hotel contracts are finalized.....huh.gif

Hey there ladies,

 

I too was having difficulties with a 'local' TA. I have family coming from Edmonton/ Toronto and Vancouver! I used to work with a lady in Vancouver that suggested her TA who has had several experiences with Jamaica. From the sounds of it she has been to Jamaica just recently and at the Riu Ocho Rios where we are planning our wedding in April 2010.

 

We are just in the preliminary stages so we are still waiting from the wholesaler for packages and such.. She is knowledgable, full of energy and answers to your emails! If anyone is interested let me know..She works for Flight center in Vancouver.. Like I said I just contacted her last week but from what I have heard she is great!
