"Go Travel South" - Out of Business

Recommended Posts

It's definitely affecting me in more ways than one. My fiance was EMPLOYED by them, AND our wedding of 43 people was booked through them. :0( So now we're down to one salary, and we have about 45 days until our wedding to figure everything out. Needless to say, it's been a pretty crazy few days for us. :0(

OMG Taratoons!!! that's insane!!! I wish you all the best & hope things work out ok! A change doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing - I know a couple of the girls who's weddings got cancelled last year bc of the piggy flu & ended up having amazing weddings that they said they wouldn't change for anything!! I'm sure once the stress of re-planning passes you will have an amazing time!!! Sending lots of positive stress free vibes your way ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks Bachata Bride, I'm trying to stay positive (even though I'm a total pessimist by nature). For example, now our guests arrive at the resort around 11 am instead of midnight, and they leave later on the last day. It just sucks that it's not just the wedding, it's his job too. At this point though, it looks like everyone will be getting their money back, but it can take up to 3 months. We have re-booked everyone onto another flight successfully, and are just trying to get a room rate and organize a transfer. Thank God FI knows his way around the industry, he's done great! Thank you so much for the support. :0)

i always recommend people pay for their travel with a credit card (not debit). it just gives you extra protection in case something like this happens.

 

what a bummer!

I second that. I used to work for a bank and that was one thing I learned- credit cards give you that extra protection that you just don't get from your bank account (in Canada, anyway, not sure about the States but it's probably the same idea). I've been trying to pay for everything with Visa as I go, just in case. Plus that way you have your Visa statement as a backup if you ever lose a receipt.

I'm so sorry for anyone who's been affected by this. I hope that everything works out for anyone who had their wedding arranged through these guys. This is pretty scary!

I always like to cover all my bases and wanted to know if you have to have a protection plan on your credit card in order for the credit card company to reimburse you if something like this happens?

 

Also are you covered if you have travel insurance? What if you bought the insurance through your travel agenthuh.gif
