Any ideas or tips?

Once I had an idea of who was confirmed, I put down the deposit and had the guests pay me back (not ideal as I had to do all the running around but I didn't really have a choice). Then for the remaining deposits/payments, my TA contacting the guests directly to collect their credit card info.
Then once I had an idea of who was coming or still considering it, I sent out our actual invitations. And that way, you don't have to send out invites to people that weren't coming!

When it was time for the deposits we updated it with the prices and to contact her and I sent out a blast to everyone just saying Make sure you check our website prices are up... Contact Angie (our TA) ASAP for best rates.

If you still don't feel comfortable including that information as an insert in your invitation then you can consider using your own wedding website to advertise the due date.
Personally I used the following wording on my invite, "as prices may fluctuate please contact (TA) to arrange a deposit and secure your seat at the current group rate." Then to support that statement, anytime I got a phone call I would redirect them to my TA (even if I knew the answer!) I did this because most times the TA will tell them point blank why the deposit is required so early.

When it was all said and done, our Save the Dates said something like:
Please call our travel agent ____ at _____ to secure your trip at the group rate before April 1, 2010.
Then we had something about the dates we were travelling, that it was all-inclusive, the approx cost/ person.
