Travel Agent Response Time?

Recommended Posts

Woohoo! I have my quotes back! LaurieLee came through in the end!

 

Air Canada was around $1500 with connecting flights.

Westjet is around $1275-1350 with direct flights.

 

It will be a little bit more hassle with Westjet because I will have to get deposits collected by Nov 19, but even if the rates weren't so much better, the convenience of direct flights makes it the obvious choice. 

 

Once the airlines started responding to quote requests and I managed to get a hold of LaurieLee from a different email address, everything has suddenly gone much smoother!

Hi, these are great rates!Do you mind me asking what resort/time of year. We are still trying to narrow things down. Thanks!

Super, thanks. Trying to narrow down a resort is so hard. We have people coming from across Canada and are trying to keep rates reasonable. Cheers!

If you haven't spoken to a TA yet I recommend it.  They were able to steer us to resorts they knew were coming back in a reasonable price point.  Our top choices ended up being ones the TA recommended, ones I would never have considered and/or knew of before I met with her.

same thing happened to us. The resort that was recommended to us was actually the one we ended up with, not one we searched ourselves. Getting a TA first thing is the best thing you can do.

Ha! i just read this thread from back in the day. Kinda crazy timing, I just found out yesterday that LaurieLee got the tour company to honour our original price for new bookings with our group (4 months before the wedding). They're $300 more expensive if you book through our own. All I can say is that she's been great to work with so far :D 

 

Time to start calling people who were on the fence and get this guest list finalized! :D

awesome :-) my TA said our rates are good as long as there is space available up to 45 days prior to departure :-)


oh and if the online prices are lower even after we book they will price match :-)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
