Booking Direct with Hotel???

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

We have decide to get married in Mexcio at one of the Real Resorts and just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on booking direct with the hotel vs with a travel agenthuh.gif

 

My instinct is to book direct with hotel.

 

Any thoughts much appreciated.

 

p.s from the United Kingdom so would be contacting hotel via email

I would get quotes direct and with a couple travel agents. I ended up getting a better deal from a TA with their negotiation power.

Hi ScottishBride,

 

I am also getting married at Real (in Playa) and plan on going thru a travel agent. As far as I can tell, the resort doesn't do packages (hotel/air) so if you went through them you would have to pay seperate - which I can imagine would get expensive. My sense is that not only can a TA get better deals, but they would be package deals. That's my plan, although I need to find a TA!!

You can usually find better deals through a TA or online if you decide not to use a TA. I think the hotels usually charge closer to their rack rates for direct bookings. Unless they have a wedding planner and work out a roup discount. I'd check with some TA's first, definitely...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
