How do I find a travel agent?

Recommended Posts

I don't know where to begin and I would like to find someone who has had experience in booking destination weddings before. Especially since they will have to coordinate people coming from all over the country to Mexico.

 

Also, what comes first? booking a date with a resort, or working with a travel agent to figure out costs etc?

 

Thanks,

Jenna

you might want to try the travel forum on here - there are a lot of travel agents who specialize in certain areas. Also, ask people you know who might be able to refer you to someone that they have dealt with before.

I would also highly suggest using a BDW TA. You definitelly want to make sure that the TA that you use has a knowledge of DW's in general and knows the process that goes along with it & is knowledgeable about the resorts that you can choose in Mexico.

Just today I read a review from a bride who did not like her experience with her TA & that filtered down to her guests who told her that she should never use that TA again!

 

I would say that if you already have a resort in mind & you don't have to make a deposit to book the date, I'd book the date just b/c at some resorts dates get booked pretty quickly & you wouldn't want your ideal date to not be available. Then I'd work with the TA in terms of rates. If the rates are too high & won't work for you & your guests, you can always cancel that date & look elsewhere. At least the TA can recommend resorts to you based on you & your guests needs.

definitely get a TA that does destination weddings, it makes a huge difference! one that is familiar with the area and/or resort is a plus as well.

 

if you want to use a TA from this forum (they all rock!) there is a handy banner at teh top of your screen you can click on to get you started!
