Hi @beachbeth! Don't feel discouraged, like the ladies said you just need to find the right agent. This was the hardest part of the process for me so far and I'm 3 1/2 months away from my day.
We used Total Advantage Travel & Tours in Toronto and they were able to beat our original quote by $130 for each guest. Making my guests travel only $1259 pp incl tax from April 26-May 3. I know it's not the season you're looking for but it's worth reaching out to them for a quote.
Good luck and keep us posted!
