Hi Akua! If your deadline is November for booking it shouldn't be to bad to get 2 more by then. Ours have been trickling in since June. If you are close to the deadline and know more people are coming, my advice would probably be to book the rooms so you don't lose your group agreement, that could be a whole other headache.
I know for my contract, if we fell under 10 rooms it would nullify the contract, which luckily didn't happen. But I still have the room there that I really hope gets booked. I was just so mad that one little question by me ended up into being a huge rant.
This is what I wrote her back. I was SO upset.
All I wanted to know was if I could change the names on the room if we booked it. I knew the rooming list was due on the 16th. I am not dumb.
I'm sorry if your commissions have decreased, but I don't know how that works in the travel industry. You are OBVIOUSLY very upset about dealing with my group, and If I knew booking these rooms was going to be such a pain for you & me I would have never done a group block in the first place.
I appreciated all the work you have done, and am very upset by your email. Apparently you are very resentful towards me, when all i wanted to know is if we could change the name on the room! You don't think I have been stressed on my end dealing with all this as well?? It's supposed to be the best day of my life and 90% of my stress is dealing with people not booking rooms and having this money looming over my head. My fiance and I have gotten into several fights just because of having this room block.
Also, we booked our honeymoon through you because I was very happy with the job you were doing and I wanted to help your business. If we had booked it on our own we would have gotten a cheaper rate.
I will let you know about the room today. I'm sorry you still have to deal with me.
