    Hello all future brides I am looking into using a travel agency and found "Wright" travel agency and requested some information. I just received an email from Babs who informed me that she will be working with us to coordinate flights and hotel stay as well as communicate with the wedding coordinator and she said they DO NOT charge a fee. Naturally I became somewhat suspicious and I just want to know if anyone out there has used their services and how effective were they? Also does anyone know why they don't charge a fee? I'm trying to explore my best options and am just nervous about the whole thing so any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you!

      Hi there, Wright doesn't charge fees because (I think) their commissions come from the resorts and vendors they book for you. They are a great company. I worked with Patty, and she was great! The owner of Wright Travel is also the owner of this site.


      From my experience, the bad agents charge fees up-front and the reputable ones recieve their commissions from the resorts and cruiselines, etc. That was my small, terrible experience though, that may not be the industry standard.

      I've heard nothing but great things about Wright Travel. I'm using Wendy of Wright Travel. I am still in the early stages of everything but she's been so helpful and I look forward to working with the company! They are very knowledgeable & I would def recommend them! 


      Good Luck & Happy Planning!

              I just got back recently from our wedding at the Now Jade.  I worked with Wendy from Wright Travels as well and she was awesome! So sweet and extremely helpful! She took care of all of our guest bookings and was always on top of everything! Good luck!

                 I don't know anything about the Wright Agency but would never use a TA that charges fees.  They should be getting commission from the resorts and vendors, not you.  My TA (a friend of mine) did say that airlines are no longer giving TAs commissions as of the last few years.
