Is it normal for a TA to...

Recommended Posts

All of a sudden tell my guests that they're charging a $25 management fee for questions on flights or hotels, without letting me know this first? They will apply the fee to your reservation if you book with them, which I understand, but she never told me about this fee to begin with so I was unable to let my guests know ahead of time. On my invitations I told the guests to call her for a custom quote, so now when they call they're being told there's a charge! The real kicker is that she's in a different city, but she said that in order to get a quote, you have to go to her office in person to sign papers and pay $25. Not one of my guests is in her city. I found this out because a guest called to get a quote from her, and he said she was really upset that no one had called her and that she'd been working on different prices for different dates since October. I was under the impression that TA's pull quotes as requested? I don't understand what all she could have been working on since October? I JUST sent out my invitations less than 2 weeks ago, so that would explain why she hasn't gotten many calls, but I also told her at the very beginning that a lot of people will probably book online, but I wanted a TA for those who prefer to go that route. I understand that it can be a waste of time to give quotes and then have people book online, but 1. She should have told me about this fee, 2. She should not be venting on my guests, and 3. Why in the world would they make you request a quote in personhuh.gif

OMG! That sounds so wrong. She sounds really unprofessional (venting to your guests). I have never heard of $25 management fee-it sounds made up IMO. Also, why would she be working on it since October-my TA looks up info and quotes when the guests call her and she doesn't charge for this. Maybe a TA on here can answer your question better, but I think it sounds like nonsense.

We had a TA before this one with Destination Weddings and that TA was very nice, but she kept giving us wrong info for out quotes (she messed up mine, my mom's and my grandma's), plus she seemed very spacey so we decided to go with this TA. I actually have a working relationship with her, which makes this even more difficult! I'm going to call her after work to find out what the deal is, but I'd hate to go with a third TA! Yikes! I'd love to get a TA's take on this situation, so if you're out there I'd love to get your opinion!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
