Do I have family book my trip??
Posted 31 December 2009 - 03:35 AM
Im not trying to complain about that because I totally understand considering she wasn't making commisssion off our bookings but I was very low maitenance, finding everything out myself and just getting her to actually book the trip.
So I don't really want to book through her for the wedding, I want to go with another recommended travel agent that has been really really helpful when booking other destination weddings.
My Aunt also lives in another city which might make it a little harder for those who like to do the face to face booking.
Do you think I will offend her if I just book with someone else?
I kind of think it would be nice for her so she wouldn't have to worry about all the travel arrangements and just enjoy a vacation, but she might also think that I am don't care or that I am making her miss out on a possible large booking, thus more commission or sales for her agency.
Any advice would be so helpful, I have been thinking about this for a while and just can't make a definite decision.

I hope it didn't sound that I was ungrateful to my aunt for helping us before, but I always found the best deals after I had asked her to, I guess thats kind of what I meant when I said low maintenance. I really also don't know for sure that she never charged us commission, I guess I just assumed it.
BUT she is my family and I don't want to exclude her, I don't want to question her talent as a travel agent.
So I think I will just talk to her and ask her if she would feel comfortable booking for me and that she is not obligated to, and if she doesn't want to I have someone here in mind. Also if she can help me with all the things I need to get done.
I would love for her to just be able to enjoy this trip and I don't want her planning it to ruin it for her, because she does deserve a nice time.
