While I'm not sure I got an amazing deal. I paid $1350 pp to cat royal for 1 week, leaving April 1. I think that's a good deal as prices have gone up quite a bit. Taxes were $179 pp!

sue, you haven't mentioned what the dates are for the awesome deal... or for what sort of resort, high end or low end.... any leftover deals to be had at this point in time are for resorts on the lower end or resorts they can't fill up.

Really awesome deals are usually in the summer months.

Has anyone noticed that Air Canada is charging $24 for the D.R. tax-instead of $20... and $15 for the Tourist Card-instead of $10 ?

Just noticed this today and you can't tell me that's because of the exchange rate.

Is that for just the flight, Deb, or for a package?

Doesn't surprize me that that would be something AC would do. Give me Westjet any day!

Yes, Mark, I found that today when looking at packages, can't find a true breakdown for flight only.

I'm sure they are not the only ones doing it though.

Found WestJet's breakdown...

DR Tax = $22.70

Tourist Card = 12.49

but if you add tax to the above that would also equal $39 ... WTH

Not surprised that most, if not all are doing it... most people don't look or notice.

Tried two similar priced packages....

WestJet = $177.93 taxes and fees on the package

Air Canada = $168.91 taxes and fees on the package.
