      All of these tour operators will consider price matching.

      Trip cancellation and medicial insurance are strongly recommended. We can qoute prices for Insurance based on age and vacation cost,

      All prices are per person and Do Not included taxes. Taxes are subject to change.

      These quotes are from Susan Therrien @ Marlin Travel In North Vancouver BC.
      Address is #520-333 Brooksbank Avenue North Vancouver, Bc V7J 3S8
      Telephone# 604-980-9766
      Email: susan.therrien@marlintravel.ca
      or Club Voyages

      Hope this helps! I also asked about May and she said the prices would only go down by $100 or so.

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.....
        Oh that is a great resort.. Decameron... I am currently working with a DW TA from Victoria who is great! She is with Flight Centre and she has been so amazing.. Not sure of the pricing for PV side as we are going to Cancun side, but our guests are paying 1940 for a week.. our resort is one of the more expensive ones I'd say.. but we got land only rates of 950 pp as well for those who have aeroplan points...

          Hamster - Don't stress about booking it yet. We were so worried about trying to book early, but the truth is, these companies have big planes and they don't fill up as fast as we all assume they do! We're from Vancouver, and also used Lindsay and there were no problems at all not being in the same city. We booked for our wedding this January in June, and believe me, we had been shopping around since Feb. So don't worry, you have tons and tons of time!
          What a PERFECT day it was ...

              I've been waiting for my rates from a couple different TA's. At first they were super helpful but it's like they just dropped off the face of the earth all of a sudden! I tried getting ahold of Natalie from this website but she hasn't replied to me in a week either, it's getting VERY frustrating.
              Hey pepsi_babi69,
              wow that is great! thanks for posting those. Are those prices per person or for two people (the double i mean) because per person 2000 seems pretty steep!! thanks for your input

                Try Lindsay! She is super helpful and is completely into the destination wedding planning! We, too, found that some travel agents didn't really seem too interested once they found out it was a wedding. And too bad for them because a big group means big commissions!

                  Yes the prices are per person! I have decided to wait a bit for prices to go down! Because $2000 per person seems high to me as well! Let me know if you find any good deals!

                    Also from BC and planning a wedding in Dec. 09. We too are finding the rates a little steep (~$2300 for The Royal PDC!) so we are still looking for a resort with more affordable rates. Quick question, if we and our guests decide to book now and then the rates go down in the next few months, can we avail of those lower rates or are we "stuck" with our original rates?

                      Yes, you're "stuck." We booked with Signature and they offered a "price adjustment" guarantee, meaning that if rates went down lower than what we paid (1826 or so taxes in) then we would get the difference back. This didn't happen though. I say wait a little - maybe till the late Spring and watch the prices so you can see how they fluctuate. Then you can jump on it when it looks good. I sort of wish now we had waited a little longer to book because I still think that what we asked people to pay was a little steep.
