To Texas Brides going to Cancun airport

Recommended Posts

Just an FYI for any of you or your party having trouble finding cheaper flights to Mexico. Austin airport has a Mexican non-stop airlines flying in and out for pretty cheap. They even have some shuttles from other cities.

 

It is called VivaAerobus. When you first pull it up, it is in Spanish. Click the American flag in the top right corner for English. If you see a rate you like, book it. Rates for our dates a couple months ago were $289 round trip and I sent out an email to our party. Some waited till the weekend and rates went up to $450 and they missed out. Since they have gone up and down so if you don't see a rate this week, look next week.

I am flying them to Puerto Vallarta this weekend. I got fares for 125/person round trip. I will let you know if there are any problems. It is a bare bones airline and I have been warned to not get to the airport to late. They only have 1 flight a day and only on 2 days a week. If you miss the flight you are out the money for that flight and if you have to get back before the next day they fly, you will be spending a lot booking on another airline.

The airlines just opened up a few more days a week to Cancun. They do not fly on Tuesday or Wednesday only now. For the last couple months, they only showed two days a week flying.

 

I have had two friends fly on them recently and they said they were not bad at all. Most of my wedding guests are flying with them. Some are even driving down from the Texas Panhandle because of the savings.

Hello everyone! My entire guest count will be using Viva for our wedding in June 2010.

I have flown with Viva twice and will be flying with them again in November to finish wedding details. They are great for the price. My ticket for Nov. is the cheapest so far ($150 after tax and fees). No food or drinks provided free of charge, but because they are a Mexican airline stuff is cheap ($2.50 for a beer). Also they are strict with the weight limit so be careful. Another important note to anyone not familiar to he airport- it is at the South Terminal not the Main Terminal. Be sure you know where to go because they are not next to each other!

One additional note about Viva: Make sure you call the airline prior to heading to the airport. My flight back from PV was delayed several hours. They notified me via email but I did not check my email that morning or the day before. We had to take another cab back into town to eat breakfast and kill some time. The check in desk people were very nice and recommended a great place for breakfast and the bus root to take there. (We opted for a cab but got a deal because it was so early in the morning, there were no arriving flights)

 

What were the ticket prices for next June? I have finally set a date for next May and was wondering if the prices would be very good this far out. They seem to be the cheapest at 90 days out. (As typical for most airlines)

 

My trip in March was only 125 and my trip this May is closer to 150. One person in our group bought early and got them a little cheaper and a few bought later and had to pay more.

We have seen them go up and down in price. Many of our guests bought when they first opened up the year. It was very inexpensive the first week or so then all the sudden when people were buying they bumped their prices a couple hundred dollars.

 

Another note. When they first opened up this year, they only opened flight dates on Sunday and Thursday. This caused us some problems because we were planning on people being there from Thursday through Monday. Now most are leaving on Sunday because when they booked, they could only book a flight back on Sunday. The airline has since opened up flights on all days of the week except Tuesday and Wednesday.

All, This thread is no longer any good! VivaAerobus just announced that all flights after May 21 2009 are cancelled and they are leaving Austin.

 

Almost all the people attending our wedding was flying with them so there is some hustling going on to get new flights arranged.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.
