Hi!! Anyone have guests waiting for last minute travel deals??

Recommended Posts

I have some guests still procrastinating, but the most important people are already booked and ready to go. I don't know why people wait. They think they can get cheaper deals, but actually, the closer you get to the departure, the more expensive it is. I would just call your guests one last time and stress the importance of booking soon.

I told my friends to book on cheapcaribbean because it was so much cheaper than my travel agent-they were able to book on there. Maybe you could suggest websites to them-also your resort is having serious sales because it is new!

For personal travel we have done it ourselves very successfully, specially lately (in the last 6 months or so). That is, wait until the last moment to book lower fares. I guess it is the economy and the airlines trying to attract travelers even at rock-bottom prices instead of going banckrupt.

 

But, being seasoned travelers we do understand that we are running the risk of not finding the "deal" and having to pay the premium.

 

I guess as far as your guests understand the risk and the consequences and are willing to pay for them instead of just not showing up at your wedding then it is OK.

 

However, welcome to the forum and wish you the best!

Thank you so much for all your posts!! I feel a bit better that it's not just me with last minute bargain hunters! I'm kinda the same way when travelling with a small group, but I can't believe how many of our friends are waiting to roll the dice. With 32 confirmed guests already...not sure I really want the number to jump up too much! =)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
