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)!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
