Kiss the stresses of booking a wedding room block goodbye. Planning a wedding on a budget isn’t just about saving for the big day, but also looking out for out-of-town guests. Jetaport’s free room block service can save you and guests an average of 15% off your hotel rooms. Who doesn’t want to save?! We also know that time is a valuable commodity and Jetaport saves you loads of it that can be better spent bringing your wedding Pinterest board to life. You’ll get matched with a personal Travel Advisor to give you that extra level of VIP treatment who manages the booking process for you.
It takes three easy steps. Select up to four hotels to request group rates, review all of your offers in your personalized dashboard, and accept by signing an e-contract! Instead of playing “Where’s Waldo” with trying to find the proper hotel contact for your room block, Jetaport streamlines it for you. Leave the days of negotiating rates on your own and faxing contracts in the past where it belongs.
Choose courtesy room blocks. It’s nearly impossible to know the exact amount of hotel rooms needed for a wedding, which is why a courtesy room block is the best option. It’s free from potential financial fees for any unused rooms in the reserved block. Just be sure that guests in need of a hotel know of the cutoff date to book the locked in rate (generally 30 days prior to arrival).
It’s okay to be picky. In fact, it will only be in your group’s benefit if you think strategically about which hotel to choose for your room block(s). Make sure that the hotel is either walking distance to the wedding venue or shuttle service is available. If you know you have guests with a broad set of needs, it’s best to offer two hotels that vary in price and room categories.
Room blocks come with perks. Jetaport’s Travel Advisors are there to “suite-talk” for you, so don’t be afraid to ask for a complimentary room upgrade or shuttle service. Hotels are happy to accommodate based on availability and the size of the business they will be getting from you. Remember, your Travel Advisor is there to make sure all of your concessions are made.
