I HATE my TA Rant

Recommended Posts

So I just sent out all of my invitations like a month ago. Before sending them I contacted my Travel Agent to verify all the dates/deposits/etc.

 

I verified that my guests had until January 5th to pay for their trip in full, as long as they have a deposit down by October 28th...

 

Well my TA just emails me the invoice to sign and fax back and it says - all guests must be paid in full by November 30th. WTF?!?! So now what do I do? Most of my guests are on fixed incomes and have to budget each payment, and need all the time they can get to pay it. Am I supposed to now send them a notice telling them, hey you actually need to be paid over a month sooner than originally budgeted for?

 

This is the last in a long line of things she has screwed up and I really regret booking with her. She has no idea about Destination Weddings or group bookings, and she never answers my questions properly. So my question is - should I see if I can use another TA within the company or ask to speak to her manager or what? I feel trapped with this right now, and I'm worried that if she is this bad, everyone else at her company will be too.

 

HELP!

Me personally, i would go with another TA. There must be other TA's in your area or you can use a TA from the forum who knows about Destination Weddings and group bookings. But i wouldn't stress anymore about the TA you have now, just fire her. I'm sure another TA would love to help you and all of your guests as well.

Definitely contact her manager and have prepared all of the things she has messed up and demand that you have a competent TA assigned to you. You should not have to stay with her if you are unhappy with her services.

I'd talk to her manager.  It's frustrating dealing with TA's, mine said the dates were confirmed, so I did up the invitations beacuse she said we were good, then the day I got htem back the dates changed!  And she was going to recharge me to print the cards when she said the date was confirmed.  Then two weeks later it went back to the original date, but still. 

 

Everyone in our trip has to pay by Nov 16th!  So I feel your pain!  But beacuse of the resort me and my FI picked for the honeymoon we have to have ours paid by the 16th!  In a few days our trip will be totally paid for, hurray!!!  Well not off the credit card, hahahaa.

So she just emailed me back this morning and agreed to extend to January 5th. Whew I'm so relieved! Akua where are you staying for your honeymoon? We are thinking of staying an extra week too, but haven't decided where yet.

Now that everything is figured out (for now) maybe I should change the name to "I'm mildly frustrated by my TA" lol

We're staying at Couples San Souci, I am so excited!  It looks super romantic, and a lot of people from the wedding are staying 2 weeks so I want alone time for me and FI  We have to pay for transportation between resorts, so its pretty close to the Bahia.  We got a way better price quote then anywhere else, the couples negril was going to be almost $2000 more!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
