Could the canadian ladies clarify something for me? My understanding has always been with a canadian group that the booking is with the tour operator, not the specific agent. While yes you want your group to all go throught he same agent, I had always thought that someone else could still get into your group through another agent because it was through the operator.

 

Is that right or wrong? Let's say someone is in Vancouver and your booking originates in Toronto. Could the Vancouver person use their own agent there to book with your group out of Toronto? Just assume that they were going to arrive in Toronto ahead of time and fly with you from TO. Could their agent contact Transat (just as example) and say I have so and so to add to the "Smith" wedding leaving Toronto on june 90th, 2050. Would their agent have access to the booking?

 

Thanks ladies. Curiousity is killing me on this one!!! lol (jk)


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@acw271011,

I was actually wondering the same thing. One of my guests said they will book using their own travel agent but will request to be in my group. I didn't question it because I didn't think it was possible. This person hasn't booked yet so I don't know if it can be done or not.

 

That's a very good question. I would really like to know this answer.

 

If any Canadian brides can offer some insight on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I have ran into this same issue. I have so far two ppl who have booked with other agents. My TA said I would need to add them to our wedding separately (our TA is sending a list to the resort). I have a spreadsheet to keep track and I also had each guest email me their confirmations once received.
Good Luck :)

@kcole123 @tygrrlily I'm just finding this forum now (way too late) and I'm getting nervous. I am using the same TA as you ladies (Kristy we posted about this before). Great comm, actually amazing comm, right from the start but it's booking time now; less than one month to go. I've heard really great things from a few that have booked and one not so great thing from another. I'm hoping it's taking so long to settle this couples booking because it's only 4 days, land only + hotel separately (more difficult?)

Fingers crossed your direct emails helped the rest of us brides out for the future (now!). No one needs that added stress and I'm sorry you went through it.

@ashhtayy - Best advice is just stay on top of her.  I also found she'd reply a lot quicker when it was me directly contacting her about something for another guest

 

Hopefully she has improved!

@ashhtayy - I know that my TA had to go back to the airline (Transat in our case) for any variations on the original package, and it did take a little longer. Also, with land only, she might be looking at other providers or trying to get your provider to price match. For land only, our TA found a cheaper rate with Sunwing and then got Transat to match it. Hopefully that's all it is and your guests will hear back soon.
