Newbie Question About Group Bookings

Recommended Posts

I'm a little embarassed to ask my TA... so, she gave me quotes on various resorts and  dates the rate is valid for - Does this mean if I put the deposit down on the resort that that is the rate guaranteed for all my guests here on out or do my guests also have to book by this date to receive the rate? Will the rate change later down the road?

That's the group rate that you are locked in! Usually it is a little cheaper than booking solo...it doesn't change unless of course you see it's cheaper else where they may be able to lower your locked in rate also!! Good luck! Where are you looking?

Excellence Playa Mujeres... right now they are doing a 35% promo deal but the last day to book is April 30th. I am like in love with the resort but since there are so many and my fiance and I JUST decided we're going to do the destination wedding thing, I'm not sure if there's one out there that I might like more!


and it is a pretty pricy resort, I don't think my guests would be able to afford it if we didn't get it discounted

Don't be embarrass to ask your TA. You won't to make sure you understand every part of process for your wedding. There is no question they haven't heard.

you should never feel too embarrassed to ask your TA any questions.  We would rather answer them thoroughly from the beginning so there are no surprises later on.

Agreed- ask the questions! Besides, you will need to know how many packages you have locked in, when your deadline to sign the contract is as well as the "book by" date, and what the deposit is for your guests to secure the rate. All these are common questions and need to be asked- don't be shy! Plus you may have incentives available to you- you don't want to miss out on those!

Ask away!  That's what they are there for!  The date they give you to book by is usually the one you have to put your down payment on to save that date. Then they will block off seats and rooms for you.  Our travel agent got 30 seats/15 rooms held for us for 3 months. After the 30 seats were booked, we got an additional 10 seats.  Our guests have to put their deposit down before the 3 months is up and the balance paid 45 days before departure.

Do the bride and groom have to put anything down to save the blocked rooms? I don't quite understand how that works, do you? Thanks!
