    Does anyone else's travel agent never fail to put them in tears? I had an actual anxiety attack, because I find out today, a month and a half after final payment was due, that they finally tried to take it, and it was declined. So she has told me so far that she needed it absolutely today, given me attitude while I was trying to find the money, and been absolutely horrible. It's been a month! It came off our other visa on Feb 4th, why not this one!?!?!

    On top of this, she has just ruined my engagement. Absolutely ruined it. She has made it the worst experience of my life.

    I called J today and begged him to just run away to Vegas.

      I'm so sorry! We have all been at that breaking point at one time or another (or many times) during our wedding planning. Is it too late to get a different agent? Maybe the TA's on here can give you some suggestions or useful advise? In the mean time, hang in there. We are here for you when you need to vent. Don't let her ruin your engagement or your big day, just think of how great it will be when you are there. Have your FI give you a backrub and grab a glass of wine tonight!

      Good luck, keep us posted!

        That is horrible!!!! What company did you use? My future MIL is a travel agent and of course is doing our wedding but I would be more than happy to give her a call to see if she could help!!!!!

          Thank you both for your words!But - it is too late - everything's nearly been done. I had a bad feeling at the beginning, should have taken heed! I've complained to everyone I can. I've given up, I do have more flights to book for people coming though, and they will NOT be going through them! It's a local company.

            I cannot believe your travel agent. Mine has been nothing but nice to me. She is so helpful and nice. Remember she is working for you-you need to sit her down and give her a talk.

              I feel your pain.... I'm totally annoyed with mine too.... I've had so many complaints about her not stepping up for our guests (and not knowing what she's talking about).... I found a different travel agent for all new bookings. The entire reason I went through a travel agent is so I wouldn't have to field complaints about anybody's travel! I'm sorry, girl.

                I'm jealous of everyone that had a good experience, and sympathise with those who didn't.

                Mine just informed my FI "I've had it with her." Professional huh? Left a voicemail for her boss, doubt it will do anything, since he hasn't contacted me at all in regards to any complaint I've lodged!

                  wow.... I really can't believe the way people are acting! Im really sorry you girls are dealing with this. You deserve to be waited on hands and feet.

                  is it stress from the economy that has everyone uptight?

                    Thank you. :) I'm actually in Edmonton, Canada - so she doesn't even really have that to blame as much! She just seems like she is determined to make me as miserable as possible.
