Hi-

 

Does anyone know the best time of year to book flights+hotel to Jamaica? I am getting married July 2010 and it's too early now but do I book as soon as prices are available or wait to see if they get lower? Also, do you think it is always cheapest to do a bundle or maybe book separately?

It's sort of a double edged sword.

 

On one hand, you want to book early (say, when the prices come out 8-9 months prior) so you can secure your date. But on the other hand, prices usually lower closer to the day of departure, but your day isn't as secure.

 

We booked over a year in advance (Feb 09 for a May 2010 departure) and the rates to go to RMB have fluctuated madly since we booked. Then again, prices for May 2010 aren't even out yet. The rate we're paying is kind of high, but then again, our date is locked in and the higher price sort of "weeds out" people who don't really want to be there for US.

 

If you're not picky about the date you're married, then by all means, wait until closer to the date. You'll likely get a good deal and everyone you want to make it, can come.

 

I don't really have any advice for booking bundles v. separatley, since we've booked through a TA who just did the group for us. Perhaps other brides will have better advice?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
