    Thank you ladies! I have been getting quotes from Sunwing and other companies like it....I really am not finding any difference in the prices except that, like you said, the n'th passenger goes free. That is maybe $100 off per person. We're looking at a group of 30 (plus us)

     

    Hi Petra, if you are really organized and determined you can build your own package. Contact the hotel directly and coordinate your flights.

    Dimps - did you do this? How did it work out for you? I just contacted the hotel to see what the prices would be.. but I'm afraid the flight costs would be too much coming from Toronto!

    You need to work with a TA not just direct to that tour operator, it's your best bet on getting added perks at your resort and the best pricing.

      Hi there, do you have any suggestions or do you suggest using our local travel agent?

      $100 off is a $100, better than nothing IMO. At the start we were about $100 less but as time went on and until our flight and resort sold out it was close to $500 less we paid.

      I also agree go to a TA not just the airline. They can work better deals, etc. Local or not isn't an issue but one who has some experience with destination weddings is a good idea. I'm in AB and mine is in BC. She was great.

      Being Canadian I don't recommend doing flight and resort separate. We have one guest doing this as they are moving and weren't sure when and it's costing them soooooo much more.

          Were you able to do this and get perks?

          I got 2 free trips and an upgrade to first class. Well worth using a travel agent.

          Things work different in Canada and I assume the OP is Canadian as Sunwing is a Canadian company.

          very nice deal, I am dreaming to be upgraded to first class?


          Edited by TheBHolders, 09 December 2014 - 11:17 AM.

          So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.
