Travel Agent Quote

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies, I'm hoping someone out there can shed some light on my situation, as I'm very new to this.


A few weeks ago, I received a quote from a travel agent for three resorts that I was interested in. The quote was for the cost of one week away at an all-inclusive resort, including taxes. The resort I liked was actually the least expensive, but the quote was for mid-April next year and I was interested to know the pricing for the beginning of May.


I asked the travel agent to look into quotes for later in April and the beginning of May, as I wanted to compare the pricing. The quotes came back for these weeks, as well as another quote for the same week in mid-April that had been referenced in the first quote. Except this time the quote for the same week in mid April was significantly higher - several hundred dollars more. The only difference is that this quote arrived approximately 3 weeks later.


Does anyone know the reason for this large difference in price?

It's usually the time. Depending on the week and day the prices can be different. Like resort in Mexico is more expensive in May, June, July and August as opposed to Sept, Oct, Nov. Also when prices first come out they are usually higher as opposed to waiting a few weeks (that's what my TA told me).

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
