    All Booked for Nov from Philly

    Just Booked from Philly for $490 through Kayak. Had to use the "Hacker Fare" but direct flight going down US Air and Air Tran short stop in Atlanta coming home. Be careful using Hacker Fare and be sure to open two windows when booking. Best of all No Kids This Year!! 14 years having kids with us. Going to be like old times again!!
    Next Aruba trip to the Marriott Surf Club July 2018.

    can you explain what a "hacker fare" is?

    it is a whole new experience going "kid free"
    when our son went off to college in 2004, we hit the beaches in aruba and were SHOCKED at what a different experience it was without "the kid"

    ENJOY!

    You Bet.. First time I used it. You book one way flights from two different websites. I booked a one way trip going down with us airways, and then booked a one way trip coming home with Air Tran. It explains to open up both websites and work on them at the same time so you don't lose that fare. We all know how sometimes fares just disappear in front of our eyes. It came up on Kayak during my search. I guess there is a slight risk involved but it worked out okay for me.

    Hope to see you at the Stellaris again this year!!
