    Arrival/Departure Fast Track Service

    I found this information for a fast track service through customs/immigration on the airport website - https://www.firstclassaruba.com/arub...k-vip-arrival/

    Is there value in paying for these services? At $150 a pop, it is an expensive service, but want to understand if there is justified reason to purchase? Is it needed more for arrivals, or departures?

    Thanks

    I think it depends on your arrival date, where your seats are on the plane, and your level of patience waiting in line. I would personally not pay for the service, as I don't think it would be worth it. However if I was arriving mid afternoon on a busy Saturday of Presidents week,my seats were in the very back of the plane, then I might consider it, mainly because my husband hates waiting in lines.
    We've had times like our previous trip where we were off the plane and in a taxi in about 30 minutes, and we've had times when the immigration hallway was packed and lines were out of control and our first hour and a half in Aruba were spent in the airport.
