Are you getting your stay for free or getting any other perks?
Posted 31 August 2009 - 04:12 PM
However, now I'm hearing of stories where people get guaranteed upgrades, their stay for free etc. if they guarantee X number of rooms. I think I can safely guarantee 10-15 rooms in Mexico, but was told by the TA that "perks" are that the guests can go through her, and that I have the peace of mind of having someone to reach out to should problems arise.
While I do think those are benefits, I am left to wonder whether there are other travel agents that will give me a better deal, discount my trip, get part of my weding package discounted, guarantee an upgrade during my stay etc.
Has anyone had experience with this that can weigh in?

There are some other threads on this site where other brides had dissapointing experiences with destinationweddings.com. If you use the search tool at the top menu you can find some other threads on the subject.

(Well, kind of) Another agent I am speaking to said that the incentives were based on what the resort themselves offer. i.e. if we book a certain number of rooms and the resort says that we can get our room for free, then that offer would be extended to us. Aughhh what a headache!
However, I would research who has the best relationship with the resort. I am sure some travel agents do more business and have a better relationship than others.
I would focus on that when selecting your TA.

With 10 rooms booked we get a free cocktail hour and 2 nights free for bride & groom
With 20 rooms booked we get a free reception and 5 nights free for bride & groom
With 25 rooms we gets free unlimited private events and 7 nights free for bride & groom
All of our guests also recieve $300 credit-$150 toward the spa and $150 toward golf if they book 3 nights and buy one get one free ATV tour or swim with the dolphins.
And this is through what the resort offers. Out TA has been very helpful in telling guests this so they book extra nights and get their perks as well as help us with ours.
