    Hi-

    I have encountered a big problem with my travel agent (Destinationweddings.com).  My guests have found their room and airfare much cheaper (>$200pp) on online sites such as expedia, priceline, and cheapcaribbean, and the travel agent service is not matching the price.  Therefore- it has been extremely difficult to fill our room block that we placed a deposit on.  Since the beginning of our travel plans- they have been extremely unhelpful and I have had to change specialists once and probably now a second time.  They made many mistakes with our contract and with overcharging our deposit- I should have just gone with someone else to begin with.  

    But- that being said- I am thinking of finding a different company after the room block is full- if I can fill it.  Does anyone have suggestions on how to work with destinationweddings.com, similar issues, or any ideas on different agents???

     

    Thanks so much for your help!!!

      I'd try one of the agents on this forum (click the banner at the top of the page to request one).  They're fantastic!

       

      I had similar issues with two different travel agents before I found a great TA here.  If its not too late for you to switch to a different agent, I would do it.  Using a not-so-good agent will end up costing you more money (they really dont work at finding deals for you) and a lot of stress that you dont need.

          I guess the banner shows up randomly!  Try this link: http://www.wrighttra.../leads/inquiry/

              Use a personal travel agent so you have a relationship with one person rather than a big online site!

                      I clicked on the banner at the top of the site and sent in my request/info early this week! I just got an email back today from Vacations For Less Inc. So far I think she will be great! My guests can book everything through them, and even make payments! It will even go towards my group bookings so it can count towards the incentives given!
