Mine was able to start getting my great quotes and deals 2 years out!!! Even before many tour operators have posted their pricing! I think depending on your TA's relationship with the operators and hotels, they can do a lot more than the average person checking pricing on line! I thought I would have to wait for months! This way, my guests get to put deposits down early and save for a while!

You are one of the few that were able to do that I am sure. I don't think I am getting any lower than $1690 with my pricing and that's with Air Transat. I might be able to get lower with Air Canada but do I want to wait another couple of months? what do you girls think of this pricing. This is leaving from St. John's and taxes included. And it's for the Melia Caribe in Punta Cana.

I think that's a pretty decent price for that resort and your departure gate.

@csho your time is getting closer. You must be getting really excited now. I ended up booking with the Air Transat quote after. the $1690 leaving St. John's. Air Canada quoted like $400 more and my travel agent said that's the best price she has seen since 2010.i also have the wedding date booked for April 17, 2015 with the resort. I sent my contract and wired them the money. I also have the La Barcaza boat booked for my reception. I sent them the deposit as well. I hope they get their money and it went through ok. Hopefully they won't book that date with someone else....eeeeek everything is so nerve wrecking. I am very excited though that much is done.

That seams like a good price seeing as March is listed at $2000+ for next year for that resort!

Yeah the travel agent said it's a really good rate. I have quoted that same resort with a couple of previous travel agents and they quoted me at $2000.

 

Also the price from Toronto I have for that resort is $1450 which is awesome. I told her go ahead and take my deposit before they change their minds...haha

@shawnandellen2015

I used Vanessa Martinez with Centre Holidays. She is awesome. Really informative and good at her job.

Do you have a resort selected yet? when you getting married? have you gotten any prices?
