    My wife and I have been to Temptations around 7 times over that last 10 years....I have always used a travel agent and never really knew how the transfer/flight/hotel prices really broke down.....we are planning a trip at the end of July....thought I would ask if anyone has any suggestions on best time to book, promo codes, etc....Thanks!!

    Before we bought into the membership (premier) we used orbitz for the package deal, air and TTR and was very very happy. (6 years)

    We always get the best prices from Orbitz, and I check around. I heard it was a regional thing. Checked prices today for Halloween, and it’s the best price it’s been in three years. Under $2200 for jacuzzi room for five nights.

    Cheaptickets.com for us. Orbitz discount site.

    Current code for 16% off is MISTLETOE but that ends today. A new one will end posted tomorrow.

    There have been some good prices recently on the hotel's own site. They've been running various specials such as every third night free, which I understand ends January 8th. Might or might not be better than what you can find elsewhere but certainly worth checking out.
    The link is:

    If that doesn't work for you then check out the Hotels Combined link in my signature and also below - this site compares many different providers and finds the best price:

    Book online. Clear your browser cache and cookies before a new search. Websites will track your searches through cookies, and adjust prices accordingly, so delete them between searches.

    Very simple, and saves time and $$$$.

    We had friends that always used to use a travel agent....until we booked one of their trips to TTR for them online and saved them $1200!!! They had never even checked for themselves and were stunned.

    With all of the online access we now have, really dont know why anyone would use a travel agent.

    We’ve used Expedia for our 3 trips 01/16, 06/16 & 08/17.

    I checked about 2 weeks ago for a 10 night trip in summer 2018 ...... was same price we paid for our TTR reopening trip = $3,000 and change including airfare. Good price at about $150 per night each.

    I’ve checked the TTR website and they want about $300 per person and that didn’t include airfare.

    We have been to TTR three times, our last trip at the end of September. We have always used Applevacations. We have checked other sites and TTR rates plus travel and Apple is always better. We fly out of St. Louis on the charter and three hrs later we are in Cancun. Check it out maybe there is a charter from your area.

    charters are great if you have them. Apple vacations out of Cleveland is insanely high for TTR package. We booked direct from the hotel for 6 nights. We were fortunate to have enough travel points for business travel this year that we got our air for free, but we normally can get r/t to Cancun from around $600 for both of us.

    I can do a bundled package (flight and room) for 5 nights and quiet pool Jacuzzi room for $2168, on Orbitz.

    If I book the flight separate it's $1023, and the discounted rate on the Temptation webpage with one night free is still $1700 for just a Garden room, for a total of over $2700.

    With a price that cheap from Orbitz, I don't see how being a member could beat that, but that's another topic...

    Check around. You can find deals if you are patient. Scanner is good for finding flights. With the sale, we are doing six nights with air for $1800.

    We've done cheaptickets and cheapcaribbean, those are typically the sites that we've found to be the cheapest when we were booking. Definitely would not recommend travel agents, cant believe with the access everyone has to the internet that they still have a job.

    Loved the price we just got for our 2018 trip (week after Thanksgiving): $347 a night for Lush Tower Suite with jacuzzi & butler (Orbitz) and with that comes about $90 in "Orbitz Bucks" that we can apply toward our airfare (or whatever else we'd book through Orbitz). We'll be staying in a much higher-end room than 2017 and paying less!

    From all of my searches bookit.com has some amazing prices with or without airfare, make sure you sign up for an account with them the prices are even better. So far I have had no issues with them and they have very good customer service.

    Just booked yesterday. We're members and the price they quoted was $359/night. They were running a special stay 3 nights get 1 free so the total was $1,077 for 4 nights or $269/night. Was pretty happy with that price.

    I booked our trip yesterday through Otel.com. For May 1 through May 8 (7 nights) it cost us $1709.69 ($1512 room + $287.34 taxes - $89.89 promo code) for a Bash Tower Ocean View Suite Room via otel.com. On bookit.com the same room was $2981.81. On cheapcarribean.com the same room was $2433.48. On the main resort page (which has buy 2 nights get 1 free right now, so 7 is an odd number of nights) the same room was $2873.00.

    I know Premier has a cyber sale going on right now and has extended it to the end of January where every third night is free. That could also save you money.... We are going July 14th thru the 20th. We try to go for our anniversary each year.
