The package price with Signature Vacations is about $1675 for 7 nights from Toronto.  If you buy you airfare from AirCanada directly ($600), then hotel from the Riu direct ($108 pp/pn = $756) and land transfer ($20) for a grand total of $1376.  Also, airfare is always going on sale and sometimes the hotel room rates drop closer to the date.  It's a little more work to book this way, but we do it all the time and always arrive safe and sound to the hotel and back home again. 

I never thought of that. It is interesting because aren't the AI whole appeal that everything is included. You'd think it would be cheaper than paying everything separately. Guess not

Well the only portion that is considered AI is the hotel.  The airfare and land transfers are done by separate companies.  It's up to the person booking if they want to take a package or look for deals on each component.  I've always found it cheaper to separate because airfare is always going on sale, and hotels often have discount room rates.  You wouldn't be able to get those deals if you buy a package (unless they actually factor in the discounts).

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
