Travel Agents for guests booking DW

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

   We are getting married at the RIU Palace in Cabo in April 2014.  I am looking for some recommendations or advice about travel agents to use to make booking the trip easier for the guests.  I am hoping for discounts and upgrades and would like to have a flight included in the price.  Anyone have any suggestions?? Thanks so much! plane.gif

I would definitely contact Wright Travel Agency. Tammy is the owner and also runs this website. I am using Wendy Hicks with Wright Travel and she's been awesome helping my guest. I have had a few guest who insist on booking on their own, but for the guest who have used her, they all say such great things! She is VERY knowledgeable about Cancun and Destination Weddings! I recommend contacting them! Here's Wendy's email address if you'd like to contact her:

I just used a travel agent for the convenience of directing my guest to one place to book. Some booked on their own through expedia, etc but for me it was nice to be able to direct everyone that had questions or who don't travel often to book through Wendy. As for prices, a travel agent can get you discounts or perks offered through the resort if you do a room block. We did not do a room block so I am not sure what discounts they are. We had to block a minimum of 10 rooms and we had to pay out of pocket then and we just didn't have it and at the time I had NO clue how many guest we would have and I was worried we wouldn't meet the minimum room requirement.

thanks @shannonmarie cheer2.gif

 

Destination wedding travel is much more complicated then booking your vacation on an internet site.  For one thing, there are group amenities that may be available that you would not get via orbitz/expedia booking.

 

It is also important to use a travel agent that is experienced in destination weddings.

I went through Apple Vacations, for us it was cheaper than going through Wright TA. I had another couple that flew out of Pheonix and Teresa was cheaper for them. However in the midwest Apple books charter flights and that was by far cheaper.

You do know that Wright Travel also books Apple?  We are an award winning agency with them.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
