I HATE my TA Rant

Recommended Posts

My pleasure! It is all a lot to take in and process and decide. If as a TA I can make it easier on my clients, then I feel like I have done my job!

I found very early in the process that TAs were difficult to work with.  I went through two TAs before selecting the one we are using (which happens to be TA Wendy).  The first individual I was going to go with decided he didn't want to deal with me when I told him that the resort he specialized in was just too expensive for our guests.  When I asked for different options he emailed me a list, but when I had questions, he never responded.


The second TA was through a well-known travel company throughout the US.  This individual clearly did not know if she was coming or going and regularly sent me information that was conflicting with information she had sent in the previous emails.  After trying to get clarity on what she was saying and she continued to talk herself in circles, I decided I needed to do something else.  I wouldn't use someone that I wasn't 110% satisfied with... this is suppose to be one of the most important times of my life!


Both of the above TAs are local.... where as the TA I went with (Wendy) is on the complete opposite side of the United States as I am...  That made me a little weiry because we'd have to either do all our work over email or on the phone, rather than in person.  Let me just say, when I decided on the third TA I had dealt with, it was the greatest decision I could have made (and I'm not just saying that because TA Wendy is here).  She has gone above and beyond any expectation I ever had...  this is the first time I've needed a TA, but I just knew something was off with the other too.  So, if you find one of the good ones, you will realize how great they really should be. 


I'm sorry you girls have had problems, but you've gotta remember all the work that gets done on that side of things before many of the TAs even get a penny...  Good luck to everyone!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
