    Hello Brides,

     

    I need your help,  our wedding is on June  2014, at the Dreams Riviera Cancun. Currently we are working with a local travel agency, but we are concerned that we won't get the best price/deal. I keep looking online and there are several deals going on, for example every third night free, or every 5 rooms booked you get 1 free, those sorts of deals.

    The travel agency has mentioned that maybe we might get a deal like that but it is not for sure. They said they can price match packages that we find on other travel websites, Expedia, Travelocity, etc. however, they also said that it is rarely needed since they offer the best price.

    So now we are wondering whether or not to just deal directly with hotel, and see about getting group rates and deals, or just let the travel agency deal with it. 

    The main reason why we chose to work with a travel agency was to make it easier for our guests to book it and also get the best deal possible.

     

    Does anybody have any advice or that has gone through this process that can advice us?

     

    Thanks very much!
