    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 agent

    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...
