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.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
