    Ok ladies great news... after I went on a rampage to the head office of my TA I got them to almost get me back to the price that i was quoted 2 months ago!!! I couldnt be happier and the Western Regional Manager Sandy was great with listening to me she came to Calgary just to investigate everything that has happened to me over the past 2 months (thank god we did almost everything by email) She also got in touch with Transat and had them lower the price $50 a person, but they are also going to provide each one of my guests with headphones and 2 drink tickets... oh the little things LOL So I am going in next week to pay my deposit and then I can finally get invitations out and be done with this stressful period of the planning and maybe start some of the fun DIY stuff that I have on my list!!!!

    Glad to hear you got it sorter out :) and some little extras ! As for travel agents how long are they giving your guests to book from the point you get the quote?

    So my quote had a 2 week expiry so I have to have mine and my FI's deposit paid by Oct 31 ($300) and then with that deposit the tour company will hold 30 seats for 90 days, within that 90 days the price is protected, so all the guests have to come up with at that time is $150 deposit and then the balance is due 60 days before travel. At least thats how I understand it, I am not sure how it works if I have more than 30 people... but I think that I am going to pay the deposit and then send the invites and then not really worry about it (or try not too)!!! But we are going in next week to pay and ask my last minute questions!!!

    I am using Maritime Travel, I have used them for all my travel in the last few years... the lady doing my wedding isnt my normal lady (she had a death in the family and has been out of the office) but we have made it work. and then I contacted the resort directly.

     

    I did get quotes from a bunch of the big name agencies and Maritime was still better.
