Some of the hotels in Mexico were demanding as much as $6,000.

Now, further for Kuki - you are booking Canadians through agencies in the US? Are you telling them (at least if they are from Ontario, Quebec and BC) that they have no coverage with TICO and the the comparable programs in PQ and BC that they have no coverage should something happen to the air carrier or cruiseline?

Also, I am with a large agency but we have nothing to do with Encore although I know what you are talking about. Anyway, not get into a big back and forth here (see we're civil ) but with the cost of the US $$, lack of any government aid and I do believe I get a comparable price to any agency in the US, I have never personally and would never personally buy anything with a US agency.

But that's only me................
