Sunwing Price drop guarantee vent.

 

Our travel agent just let us know today that we can apply a one-time price drop.  When we signed the contract we were told the price drop could be applied 45 prior to travelling.  Suddenly it is 60 days.  I'm so annoyed.  The weather in Toronto has been so crappy so the prices haven't really dropped.  The  most it's going to drop is $100.  We travel in June which is the cheapest time of year to travel and our guests are going to be paying more than $200 more than what it usually costs.  I thought we had 45 days and I knew the price would drop more 45 days before.  So annoyed.

 

Anyone else experience this?

Ugh.. oh no!! My TA let me know that the prices for my trip (outside of our booking block) have actually gone up. Seems she isn't very optimistic about ours dropping either - we're with Transat.

I was really hoping it would drop about $100 per person..

@perianjay same here! we're also with Transat and our TA said that most likely the prices will just go up. She said it is mainly to do with the resort we've chosen that they always sell out regardless of the time of year.

We didn't qualify for a group rate since we didn't have enough people but for October, Azul Fives has just dropped $150 per person. I'm still betting it will go down a bit more. The agent I have said to hold off until about May or June before we book. I've been watching prices and just this week they've all dropped. But I don't know how it works if you have a group rate set up. Your quote may already be cheaper than what's being advertised now. We're going with Transat as well since they're exclusive for AF but we also have air miles travel certificates to use which are through Transat and Marlin Travel.


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

@snswedding2016 same! haha we chose a busy season, plus there's another wedding the same week as mine with quite a large amount of guests. My resort isn't huge to begin with, so I have a feeling we won't get much price drop ...if any. I wanted to try to keep the cost down to $1500 a person, but looks like my guests may be paying the $1660

Oh wow!   It's almost like the group rate is a better idea for busy seasons because last minute the price will probably only go up and your group rate is probably lower.  Ours is the opposite.  Oh well...I can't control everything.  I have to just let this one go.  People aren't going because they were expecting to have a price drop off $300 - they are just going because they want to come to our wedding.  Our average prices, because we gave all our guests room options, is $1200-$1300.
