Did anyone out there add $$ to their trip price?

however, forcing each guest to pay a little extra (that will go toward a free trip), especially without their knowledge, is just shady and tacky.

I had a small cushion of about $300 that went to pay for additional costs so my guests wouldn't have to pay more than the original amount and the published price on my website. Anything that was left over went back into the wedding so all guests could enjoy.
I'm OK with that (obviously since I did it, LOL) but I wouldn't raise prices to pay for any specific people.

note to all TAs, vendors, etc.: if you don't want anyone to post anything negative (or that might be viewed as negative) about you in a public forum, then don't give us ammunition! we are just as likely to post glowing recommendations and positive experiences as we are the negative stuff. it's your actions that determine which will end up on the forum!
I'm also very curious about the TA...I'm from Red Deer as well and talked to a few questionable ones before I found the perfect one for our group...and it's been a great experience so far...

As far as taking the free flights or free room accumulated from booking so many people, I think that is completely fine. I've also heard of prices dropping $10-$20 and the TA credited the couple with that money instead of each guests. Our prices dropped about $10, but our TA credited that to each guest. If it went to us we would have turned around & given it back to the guests be adding something for them to the trip. We probably would have covered lunch at the group excursion with that extra money. I would feel like it needs to be something that goes directly to the guest, not extra flowers or something like that.
