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 :-)
