    Airport Departure Tax / Beachdestinations.com

    Hello to all!

    I would like to know if any of you has used Beachdestinations.com. I've read some good reviews on their website, but won't base my decision solely on that. Also, I read about the airport departure tax (of about US$37) that passengers pay to leave Aruba towards the US. I will try to verify if it is included in the taxes for our Continental flight, but if anyone can confirm whether they've had to pay it at the airport, I'd appreciate it.

    Thank you

    I have no experience with beachdestinations.com but regarding airport departure tax, the tax is already added in the price of the plane ticket.

    Beachdestinations.com NOT RELIABLE

    Prices do NOT include airport tax (though they mention while booking that "all taxes are included").

    I was just checking boards to see if anyone has experience with beachdestinations but I did see in my booking rules when booking my vacation through BD:

    NOT INCLUDED
    - Airport departure or entry taxes not included in ticket taxes. Passengers must pay in cash on location.
    - Documentation: All travel documents are the responsibility of the passenger. A valid passport is required in most cases. U.S. citizens also need a visa when traveling to Brazil. Some vaccinations may be required.
    - Additional expenses such as laundry, alcoholic beverages (except when included), excess baggage charges, baggage insurance, meals (except as indicated in itineraries) or items of a personal nature.
    - Hotel bellmen and chambermaid service.
    - Tips and gratuities of any kind.

    I too have always been told that the airport departure taxes were included in the price of the airline ticket. It has been many years since they have been collected separately.

    I have to say, that is why we use MCM Tours, no hidden fees and all taxes included.

    I've read some good reviews on their website
