Air Transat Refund Amount - Help!

Recommended Posts

@@TAPreety The free credits are an Air Transat promotion (not from the hotel) and the exact wording in our contract is: 


"Every 15th adult passenger booked under the group will earn a complimentary passenger (16th adult passenger free). Complimentary passengers are a monetary refund given after final payment has been received for the entire group, based and earned on least expensive adult double occupancy package, excluding taxes, connectors and surcharges. Up to a maximum of 4 complimentary passengers can be earned on the group. Passengers booked outside the

group, with the hotel direct, or land only will not count towards the complimentary passengers."
I guess what I'm looking for from you or @@TADarci is confirmation of whether TA commissions are ever excluded from the refund amount when the refund is based on the air + hotel base pricing (minus taxes and fees) - i.e. say she gets $150 for every guest that I book, is my refund reduced by $150 for every 15th passenger? I'm guessing this might be the case, but don't want to accuse my TA until I hear this is a possibility and I also want to know if there's any recourse.
@@nkavanaugh I'm in the same boat - I used the refund money I was expecting to help pay for my Vancouver passengers who were charged a lot more than the Ontario trips. Why was your refund reduced? If I remember correctly you were well over the # needed for the 4 passenger refund. I'm sorry you're going through this too  :(

@@krystalball Transat is now coming back saying the maximum is three? I swear they are a bit crazy. I'm so unorganized but I have been digging around for my contract to make sure that is actually what its states because I feel like I have only ever heard four. So frustrating and not a good way to start off the journey with them!

My sister is a lawyer and I had her go through the contract I got from my TA that I was told was from Transat (but it had the TA's letterhead, not Transat, so I'm not sure where it originated). She said it was the most poorly written contract she'd ever seen (although she is not a contract lawyer)!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
