    Has anyone gotten any 2010 travel package prices yet, either from a TA or on your own?

    Our first package price (Vacation Express) came in for 4/24/10 - 5/1/10 for Dreams PC and the hotel ALONE even without a flight was nearly double the hotel/flight rate for the same week this year from Apple Vacations. (Apple prices for Spring 2010 aren't out yet)

    Anyone have any experience with this? It made me a little nervous since the affordability of Dreams was one of the reasons we chose it. I know prices tend to go down over time, but I wanted to check and see if any of you have had similar experiences with pricing.

    Thanks for your help!

      I was told when you go thru a TA and you book the resort and the flight together is will always be cheaper. For my resort my rates wont be out till May. I know that you can't look at a flight more than 10 months out. I'm like you want to go ahead and book are stuff but now all I can do is wait. I hope this helped

            Hey -
            I am March 20 2010 and I have already booked with the tour company (Sunquest). I spoke with my TA (who is a good friend) at the first of March 2009 and because my dates are not flexible we called and got rates for march 15-19 2010. There are restrictions and unknowns but I wanted to book it so that I knew we had something confirmed.
            If you would like more info about what the restrictions and unknowns are let me know...

            Cheers
            Marcie

              Hello

              We just booked for Jan. 2010. Our prices are guaranteed b/c we put our deposits in already but our fly out date may change by a day. We won't know our flight times etc until June. We used a TA and our operator is Sunwing. Hope this helps.

                Oh my gosh really!? I'll have to check out Sunquest and Sunwing...THANKS MARCIE and krayzeekitty!!
                After I blogged yesterday I went to another TA, I was so jacked that the lady at my first pick never called me back and I just wan't happy I rushed up there and got really positive result. NO firm prices at this time still but at least I feel like they understood, shed some light onto different resorts and the qualities of each. They were really personal and overall fun.... Today I'm better....but still looking:)
                Have a good Easter Everyone.

                    Glad that it all worked out!! I love my TA but it also helps that she is a friend. I am sure all will work out for you. Keep in touch with your planning!

                    Cheers & happy Easter as well.

                      I am April 10, 2010 and was able to get resort prices but Airfare prices don't come out until 330 days before. I'm going through a TA but I know it says Sunquest on my contract.

                      I had the same experience as you all did with 3 different TAs not following up with me...I couldn't believe they didn't want my business! The one I'm using now is awesome....she emails me regularly, calls me and has done everything she said she will.
