I talked to our agent today and she said that the rates she's seeing are what you quoted below so they did go up. Our original quote from Transat was $1500 but Sunquest had a deal and we got a price match from Transat with Sunquest. I don't know the ins and outs or how they do it. When she gets your quotes for Sunwing and Sunquest, if they're good, ask if she'll go back to Transat for a price match. I know low season is until Dec 15th so I would just keep pushing to find a lower rate. That's what I did. I just kept pushing and went to several different agents. try 1travel2000 or selloff vacations and keep after your travel agent. if they want the business they'll keep looking for you. if our rate wasn't good, I'd still be looking. we wouldn't be giving the pricing to our guests yet so just keep at it.

These prices are ridiculous. I know I am asking alot but may I have the name of the travel agent your using and possibly the phone number because the two agents I have had look for me came no where near the prices your getting. Pretty please I would really sincerely appreciate it. Also did your air miles get you that better rate of 1250? maybe that's why my quotes are all so high.
I had submitted the group rate request with Sunwing Vacations which offers a departure on November 20th, but have not yet heard back from them.
Sunquest and Air Transat Holidays have a departure on November 19th. Transat is the one that offers the Royal Club Golden. They are the only ones who have replied to my group request (see bellow).
Here are the prices for just the 2 of you (not a group rate):
$1535 inc tax per person Junior Suite
$1490 inc tax per person Junior Suite
Transat Holidays: 19NOV
Junior Suite on request
$1640 Royal Club Golden
As mentioned above, Transat Holidays was the only one who provided me with a group rate so far:
Transat Holidays: 19NOV *GROUP RATE: minimum 10 passengers
$1530 Junior Suite
$1599 Royal Club Golden
Flight times are still to be advised. We will know more as to the flight times at a later date.
I should have the group rates with Sunquest and Sunwing before the end of the day tomorrow, and I will send you the details.
We will match any competitorâ€™s price, so if you have a lower price, please let me know and I will see what we can do to match it, if not even beat it.
