A Rant about Travel

Recommended Posts

So I know it kinda comes with the territory, but I am so upset right now. I needed to know the name of a place I had bought something so I checked my credit card statement and while I was looking at it, I saw all the transactions for our trip and our photographers trip and then I saw my balance, higher than I thought. Well, stupid me, I don't know why I do this to myself but...I went on expedia and travelocity and searched the trips and DAMN IT if the prices haven't dropped, ALOT!!!!! If it was like a hundred bucks I wouldn't care, but the cost of my 8 day 7 night trip dropped $652!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!huh.gif And my photographers dropped $256!!! That is over $900 difference, that would pay for half of my wedding package at the resort. I know I can't do anything about it, but god I am so mad right now!

Actually, when you have that large of a difference in price, some airlines will credit you the difference back to your account. Especially if you aren't changing airlines or flights or times. You should call your airlines or your TA and look into it. Sometimes, they will charge you a change of ticket fee which can range from $50-150 but still give you the difference back. Hope that helps!

Yeah, FI's parents are paying for our trip and the TA actually contacted them and told them that the prices had dropped and they would refund them the $$ saved wink.gif Call your TA if you have one!

My "TA" is destinationweddings.com and 3 or so weeks ago I had noticed a smaller difference on my trip and asked her about it out of curiosity, it wasn't alot so I wasn't too concerned. She called me a day later and told me there was nothing she could do. I have contacted her in this case and I told her that I would really like something done since it is such a large amount, I will see what she says.

If you have travel insurance you will be credited the price difference. If you don't have the insurance they are not obligated to lower your price but sometimes they can work around things. We got a great deal on our package but then a couple weeks later I noticed it was $150 per couple cheaper. I wasn't super upset about it because I tought we still got a great price but I mentioned it to my travel agent just in case and she was able to lower the prices of all our packages since it was the resort that lowered their costs and not the airlines.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
