I went through a local travel agency that i have been using for years. they signed a room contract on my behalf. Whenever you use an agent, you should know that they make a commision of about 15% on each booking. My agent gave up about 8% per booking so that my per night cost decreased by about $30. I think the hotel gave me rates of 360/per night per room, now its 335. WHen you add flight (depends on time of year and location) it should range from 1500-1800 pp for 7 nights. We are 4 months out now its about 1550, my guests that booked 3 months ago paid 1750, so the prices do change.

I was wondering if you could help me with some estimates on rates . I am currently working with a few travel agents to get some rates for my July 20th 2013 wedding . However, many of the rates are coming in 300 per person including air . I was hoping for closer to 200 . Is 300 accurate or high Please help !! If people don't mind if they can share their rates including air per person per night ! Your all the best !
