I'm currently in the process of getting quotes from travel agents for my wedding next summer. And, I'm starting to feel overwhelmed... First of all, all the quotes that I'm receiving are higher than what I was expecting to pay for our vacation. I'm worried that our guests, many of whom said they were going to come, are going to change their mind once they see the prices. I'm trying to choose the best travel agent and tour operator in order to get the best group rate for our group, but it's not easy.
My first choice would be to travel with West Jet, as I've always had good experiences with them and they seem to have a pretty good reputation. The problem is that their prices are higher, especially for those with kids, than Air Transat and Sunwing. I want to go with one of the cheaper companies, but I'm worried as I've heard many stories of flights being changed and canceled at the last minute. In fact, one of the travel agents told me that she doesn't work with Sunwing anymore because of their constantly changing flights, which have affected her clients and their wedding guests in the past.
So what do you think? Pay a bit extra and go with West Jet or save a few bucks and risk having flight schedules changed/canceled before the big day?
