When To Contact A Travel Agent?

Recommended Posts

I am just looking for an idea of when people started to contact a travel agent for their destination wedding. We are looking to get married in February 2016, so I am probably way early but I'd like to know what others have done.

Thanks!

Welcome to BDW and congrats on planning a DW!

 

You didn't say if you're in the US or Canada, but it's never too early to contact a travel agent, even if it's just to touch base with one and see what kind of relationship you develop with them. I would say you're a little early yet for 2016. If you're in the US, I would highly recommend getting in touch with the site owners, Wright Travel. They are destination wedding specialists and have tons of information that they can help you with. And they would also be able to help you figure out when to actually start working with them to get plans put together. If you're in Canada, things work just a little differently. Pricing for packages is only available about a year in advance. I was just advised that for October 2015 for me, pricing won't even be available until late this summer, and even then flight departure days aren't guaranteed.

 

If you know your location, that's a good first step. You could spend some time on this site reading through the different comments and tips and ideas. Browse through the resort and vendor reviews and see what other brides have had to say. There is so much information here sometimes it takes a little while to process it, but it's a lot of fun to read through.

 

Hope that helps a little. Good luck and happy planning!!

I would definitely say to start talking to travel agents, we had to speak with a few before we found someone that we actually clicked with!

And the departure dates do change, we sent out our save the dates in December 2013, after confirming dates of October 19-26, but then changed to October 18-25 when the flight schedule came out in early January. It actually worked out better for us since we now leave on a Saturday and get home Saturday which allows people one day to relax before having to go back to work!
