December rates from Toronto Canada

I normally travel in October so know what I usually pay for that time..

This year it looks like we will be traveling early December and I have no idea if the current pricing approximately $1500+ is good, average or high.

This is all inclusive and at the Barcelo Colonial/Tropical.

thanks

We have travelled this time of year and received some exceptional deals. From out west anyway, the pricing for early December has been the same or lower than October.

$1500 "each" including tax out of YYZ or for two ? That seems kind of high if each for a Barcelo, is it a package? Try pricing out on expedia.ca using flight + hotel link.

Expedia doesn't seem to be working right now but check it out later. I was pricing the Bahia Sian Kaan this week using westjet and it was only $1125pp , I have never priced a Barcelo so maybe they are pricier. Using flight plus hotel out of YYZ usually comes out cheaper than a package but the hotel transfer isn't included.

I should add I was looking at Dec 10 which is a Tuesday which should be cheaper.

early December from Saskatoon = great prices.....I am sure it is the same from TO, it's low season.

But this is too early to book, IMO. Wait until about 6-8 weeks before departure to start looking.

Steve77, are you looking at a basic room, or are you pricing the higher category ones?

Also, transfers included, or not with tripcentral?

Have you taken a look at Transat Holidays? Not sure, but I think the Barcelo Colonial is listed as one of there "Distinction Collection" and may have some extra perks. As to how prices compare, sorry, I don't know that right now.
