    Booking online or in person

    Will it be too late to book activities in person when I'm in Aruba? In many tour web sites, they suggest to book 2 weeks in advance, but then I can't bargain online... usually I can save 10-15% if talk to the sales guy... please advise.

    in aruba, the prices are pretty "set" and never have i heard of "bargaining" for tours etc..

    so, my advice to you would be to book as soon as you can.
    but, if you are going to aruba during a slower time period you should have no difficulties booking a tour that you want, when you get there.
    (prebooking is good over the christmas and new year holidays, carnival time, easter)

    Some companies offer a discount for booking online. In 19 trips, I too have never heard of bargaining for a tour. Perhaps an activity such as tubing or parasailing, but never an organized excursion.

    I received a discount on a couple things by booking direct (rather than thru a concierge) but otherwise the prices seem to be set.
