Sunquest - Cancelled Trips from NS Canada

Recommended Posts

I just received a call from my travel agent letting me know that Sunquest has decided they will no longer book trips out of NS, and we will have to start the booking process all over again.  I have 37 guests who all paid deposits 5 months ago, and now they will get the deposits back, and we will have to book again with someone else.  The problem is that the trips are now about $250 more per person then they were when we booked.  


How do we ask our guests to pay more, or do we just cancel all together?  


Has anyone else booked with Sunquest from NS?

I'm booked with Sunquest but of of Toronto.  They have changed our schedule as well. We were originally to leave on the 12th, they pulled out the dates, and the now they are back again!! It was a total piss off because now we can't move back to the 12th and we have 5 days prior to our wedding (where oringally we would have only 2.5 days wait, and few for honeymoon!). 


If your travel agent is somewhat good, he/she should try with another operator. If you already have 37 people with deposits, and the agent has someone he works closely with at another operator, he should be able to work something out for you. Maybe not the same price but within the range of $50-100.  If  this particular agent can't do anything, go somewhere else and present your situation and see what they can do.  Make sure you highlight that you have the deposits available.

Sunquest also cancelled their direct flights out of Thunder Bay.  My Fiance and I had 30+ guests booked for a destination wedding in the Dominican.  We received the same dreaded phone call from our travel agent informing us that the fight was cancelled.  We waited in agony for several weeks to find out what alternative plans Sunquest would put together for us and we heard absolutely nothing from them.  Thankfully we have an excellent agent who recommended we rebook with a competitor that picked up direct flights out of Thunder Bay.  The alternative would have been to wait almost another month for Sunquestâ€s alternative solution which included a 10+ hour layover in Toronto and arriving in the Dominican after midnight.


I caution anyone considering a destination wedding through Sunquest, they obviously donâ€t care about customer service.  They can and will cancel arrangements at any time without warning or adequate communication.  They caused us to have to rebook everything for our wedding, including having to resend out all our wedding invitations with rescheduled details.  Caused us considerable stress and expense and even after a formal letter of complaint to their customer service department, I have yet to hear from any representative of Sunquest, even if just to say sorry.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
