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.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
