Sunquest - Free stuff?

Recommended Posts

My TA has given us the rates for Nov-Dec 2009 and it's about $1460/pp with taxes all in...if we want the group rates, it's free for every 17th person and minimum number of rooms you have to book is 5. She said they had just closed the deal on these rates for the 2009-2010 season with Sunquest and it was just to give us an idea of what the rates are like during that time of the year. However, the winter season for 2010-2011 will not be published or confirmed until Jan 2010 so we were thinking of waiting it out until then before we book....Nov 2010 is too far away!!

 

Marie, thanks for all the info...but 1900 is a bit too much for our guests, who we're hoping to only have to fork out about 14-1500 at most...but I guess it's all dependent on the time you're going, right? I don't think Nov is too busy, it's just after the hurricane season ends (I hope!!) so we're hoping the rates are about that price range.

From what I understand......the rates quoted now are the most you would pay, if they go lower then you can pay the $100 cancellation fee and rebook - something like that. I know that's what is was for Signature, can't remember the details for Sunquest.

 

What pisses me off, is that for some of the hotels you get nothing! We were between the RIU Club Negril & the RIU Palace Tropical Bay (more money), and in the end we went with RPTB - but none of the Sunquest deals go with it?! Go figure, I'm spending more money and there are less incentives!!!

 

The Club Negril would have been every 22 adults........I hope only 21 book! LOL Then I won't feel like we missed out! :)

 

I would really search for TAs, we get an $800 luggage set, wedding inserts (invites), luggage tags, and Thank Yous.

Im so confused about this free person bit lol.

 

We have 32 people booked since March 2009 for our May 210 wedding, including myself and my fiance. I have the number 16 written down everywhere....I always thought it meant the 16th person goes free, in whch case he and I will go for free....but now Im reading you have to have 16 booked...meaning the 17th goes for free. (With sunquest of course)Ill be so let down if we miss the trip by one person...

 

Then the summer I learned they had a promo out where every 8th went for free.....imagine that! lol...

For me, it's every 12th person free....usually the quotes say to a maximum of 2, but our lastest one didn't, so I plan on fighting for it if needed!!! I didn't get the options of luggage or a travel voucher though. I think it all depends on the time of booking.

Ang - we didn't get the free sunquest stuff until about a month before the wedding & had no idea we were even getting it! So they may still have that promotion on!

 

Marie - we had free passes as well, but ours was every 21st. So...20 people book & the 21st to book was free. Then 20 more people book (so 41 total) and the 42nd person to book was free. I think in your case, you will be missing the trip by 2 people...but yes, definitely sucks! But at least you guys won't have to pay the full amount for both of you!

The free luggage is the gift...or you can take a $200 gift card that is good for about a gazillion stores! Personally we didn't find out about the free stuff until a few weeks before we left, so we probably wouldn't have gotten the luggage in time if we wanted it.

 

Since when is RIU MB sunwing?? RIU has been exclusive to Sunquest for ages! wow.
