Prices for trip?

Recommended Posts

We are getting married in Jamaica in May 2010. We booked through liberty travel and ppl we talk to that have been to all inclusive resorts before keep saying we are paying way too much.

 

We are staying at Sandals Negril for 7 nights. Our package is $5,200 That is airfare, insurance, and of the room. Is this too high? What is everyone else paying if it is okay to ask?

When I was first looking at travel I started by speaking with more than one travel agent to determine who could get me the best price for what I was looking for. The next thing I did was go online and do my best pricing things out on my own. After doing this research I found that the travel agent I am working with is really giving me the best price so I've directed all of my guests to speak with her. Guess what? They too did their research and found she really did find the best deal for all of us.

 

It might be hard for people on here to compare pricing with you unless they are from your area. For me, there was even a difference between airports. (We have several to choose from depending on how far we want to drive) So that also affected price.

 

Good luck, and don't be afraid to do your research until you are comfortable you are getting the best price for what you want.

Okay, so it is too much? But no one has said what it should be or what they are paying.

 

That is the price for both of us and it is the honeymoon room with ocean view. No jacuzzi or anything like that.

wow $5,200 for a couple w/ airfare, room, and insurance that is a tad bit much for jamaica.....i am not sure of the difference in the quality of the hotels, but we are staying at the Riu tropical bay resort in negril jamaica for 7 days as well, our hotel is AI also, and are rates are based upon double occupancy, we are only paying $3470 (airfare,room,insurance) for both of us ($1735 a person for 7 days)....for 4 days it is $1195 per person(airfare, room,insurance)........

 

maybe it has something to do with location, we are in chicago and used liberty travel as well, so far our travel agent has been great.....i would definetly check around

Check out this article -

All inclusives vary greatly in included amenities, quality of food & beverage, elbow room at the resort, staff training and so on- that is why you will find a difference between teh prices.

 

Just as a side note- when other all inclusives are hiring staff in Jamaica there are two lines- one for all others where they go through an interview process and seperate line for people who worked at Sandals! The ppl who worked for Sandals are generally hired right on the spot.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
