      My TA said that with SunWing, every 15th person is free... which can be used toward the Bride and Groom or as a discount for all your guests.  Good luck!

        With Air Canada you get a discount. I'm not sure what it is but even if you go on their website you can click on booking for 10 or more and it will give you a custom discounted quote.

        I would talk to your TA about that because a group booking should have a discount.  We got quotes for a bunch of different companies, including Air Canada, and they were going to offer us every 25th person free.  We ended up not using them as Transat was a few hundred dollars cheaper and we get every 15th person free.  I would ask your TA for group quotes from other vacation companies, and then if one is cheaper and you really want to use Air Canada you can see if they will price match, thats what we did with Sunquest and Transat.

          I would definitely shop around for a new TA. We had the same problem with our previous TA only she was quoting group rates way to high. Our new TA found a fantastic deal with SunWing where if you book 15 people, the 16th person is free (minus taxes) which could be used towards a free room for Bride & Groom or a credit to distribute across your group to lower their price. I have seen some type of deal with AC where if you book 10 people, you get some type of promotion/discount. I would definitely look into that. Also WestJet have promotions too. In fact most TAs will use as many promotions and discounts they can find to lower the price for you and guarantee a solid quote as they want your business. Especially if you are booking 30+ guests.
