    Hi,

    Our wedding date is getting closer, and people are start looking at airfare. Turns out, someone found excellent deals via travelocity, and basically if you buy the flight + hotel combo, the rate comes out way better. That gives our guests no incentive to book the hotel directly. This ofcourse, impacts our signed contract. I am waiting till Monday where my bride can discuss this with the hotel coordinator, but had any one run into a problem like this?

    for example:

    hotel rate 170/night +taxes and fees.

    travelocity offers:
    air fare alone = 562/pp
    air + hotel 6 nights = 999/pp

    Thanks.

        I'm glad the hotel covered all sources. Where are you getting married?

              What hotel is this. I'm getting married in Cabo and I trying to get travel arrangements underway.
