    I emailed Transcabo to set up transporation for my guests from the airport to Dreams. But I got an email back from a destination management company, Incentives Management, saying that they are a part of the Transcabo group.

    For the girls that have and are working w/ Transcabo, did you go through this other company? I'm just wondering if it's going to be more expensive b/c I have to work through a middleman.

    FYI, I spoke to Maye regarding transportation for my guests, and she quoted me $31/p. I'm just trying to find something cheaper.

      The same thing happened to me with the reply email.
      Basically, unless you have 16+ people arriving all at the same time, there is no economic benefit to reserving as a group. For anything less, if you are not paying for your guests, the easiest thing is to have them book directly online.
      Personally, I'm not paying, but I have asked guests for their arrival info and will help coordinate for those who arrive at the same times to share private transit so they don't have to do a shuttle. But I will ask 1 person from the group to be the "leader" and do the online reservation and they can sort it out from there. So far, people are happy about this bc they can have more direct transit without having to pay the private price (assuming I can put together groups of 5 or more).

        Good point. I'll take this into consideration.

        leia,

        i also help arrange transfers for your guest...it is $34 per person for roundtrip but it is worth it because your guests don't need to come at the same time and the transfer company is really nice and reliable

          Okay, good to know. Hmmm, this might be easier for them to book their hotel through you and at the same time arrange for transportation.

            BTW, how much do you think air would be? Most of our guests will be flying out of SFO, Oakland, and San Diego. I want to give them a rough est. on the pricing for flights on our website and newsletter.

            well, air rates for nov. 2008 are not out yet...it would be cheaper for your guests to fly out of sfo than oakland and this year i was getting flights out of sfo in the $320-400 range usually.

            from san diego it was around $400-450 but if they are close to LAX it would be cheaper from there.
