How Much Is The Trip Costing Your Guests

Recommended Posts

I will start.

 

Travelling with Air Transat for a 7 day all inclusive at Melia Caribe Tropical.

 

Departing St. John's, Newfoundland - $1690 taxes included based on double occupancy

 

Departing Toronto, Ontario - $1450 taxes included based on double occupancy

 

Departing from Edmonton - This is where me and my fiancé are departing from and a couple of other people. The prices for this isn't yet determined because packages weren't available with Air Transat leaving Edmonton to Punta Cana for this resort. We may have to get land only and do the flights separate. Right now it looks to be around $1900 with both combined. I am hoping the flight prices will go down.

 

All of these prices require a $50 deposit which is due July 4th/14. The remainder is due Feb 5/15. Wedding date is April 17, 2015.

I just sent am e-mail to a TA to get pricing and will share once I have an idea. 95% of our guests will be flying from California and the remainder form other states all to Cabo.

I don't have a good idea as to how much it will cost my guests, because we gave them a range of choice. We block booked room for 7 days, but we are allowing our guests to choose how long they want to stay, as well as when they want to go to Punta Cana. Guests have to stay for 3 days at Dreams Palm Beach, so that is $611 for 3 nights for double occupancy and flights are between 550-650 depending on the day!

All of my guests are flying out of Vancouver, to Cancun for 7 nights staying in a Deluxe Junior Suite at Grand Sunset Princess. It's costing guests $1635 based on double sharing.

 

:(

 

When we originally started looking I wanted to keep it around $1300. That didn't happen!


Oh and mine require a $250 deposit by July 14th, and remainder by Apr 1, 2015 for my May 23, 2015 departure.

They require a $150 deposit it ends up being $1700 with taxes for the cheapest room. The fiancé and I are splurging with an upgrade and it will cost us $1900 with taxes.

The majority of our guests will be staying from 3-4 nights in Mexico- Some are taking it as a vacation, so most people are staying longer than we would advise financially.

 

For single occupancy, the price for the trip is around 1200-1300

 

For two people its closer to 2800

 

It's a lot of money no matter where you go I think :unsure:

HI @@nikkicraig10

what are your numbers looking like so far? how many people have already put down deposits.

 

I am not sure!! We invited only 52 people down, but I have been too nervous to ask my TA how many people have phoned her up because I don't want to hear "none"! My deposits not due for another month and a half so I think people are just procrastinating, but I have a good idea of at least 25 because that's the bridal party, their spouses and our parents/siblings. Hoping for 40 because for the reception I chose I have to pay for a minimum of 40 people! (at $100/person!)

@@nikkicraig10 I just spoke with my TA and she told me no one has booked hahah. I felt like a kid that they just said "you have no friends" to hahah. I better get my family on it to at least make some numbers! haha. I'm still far away from the deadline so I'm not worried (2 months). Most people have said that they are coming but I know everyone is procrastinating. I'm hoping they will start booking when I send invitations next month.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
