Travel Agent Issues

Recommended Posts

I'm not exactly sure of a date. Maybe talk to your TA and see what they recommend. One thing we wrote on our reservations was a disclaimer to make sure everyone booked as soon as possible, as available seats were limited (which they were for those flying out of the west). If they took their time and booked too late, then someone else would get their seat.

It's not only members of your wedding booking, they have to be aware other individuals are booking to go to Jamaica also. If the seats are full, then there's nothing the TA can do, or the price may go up for another flight. That really worked for us in getting people to book quickly. What we said was basically true for Canada...not sure how it would work in the States.

We are getting married in April 2008 and began booking in May 2007 (so almost a year out). We needed to have a minimum of 10 rooms booked within a certain time frame to qualify for an early bird rate, which is what we did. Then, anyone else who booked after the fact could get that rate if it is still available or whatever the best rate is. but at time of booking, a deposit is due for each guest/room.


I think b/c your starting the booking process much closer to your actual wedding date than we did ... is why the timeframes are much more stringent.

But it's not unreasonable to ask for a deposit to be placereserving the room. BY next week is obviously going to be tough, unless you've already been in contact with some guests who you know plan on coming.


For us, anyone who booked through our travel agent will have to pay their FINAL payment by January 15 (90 days prior to departure) ... so with your wedding date being exactly one month after mine ... I can understand why getting the deposits in and rooms reserved is a bit more of an issue for a TA.


Our resort is almost at capacity (if it's not already over capacity) so we could be faced with last-minute guests being bumped to other resorts or not being able to reserve a room at our resort at all if they wait much longer.


Hope that helpshuh.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
