    Thanks, folks Ya gotta help me get to first class so I can post it... Teheee

    QUOTE=WaltVB;267591]Rob, you and Cindy must do first class! This is trip is your 20th? Tradition says the perfect gift is china, so upgrade to first and eat your lunch on the way down off of china instead of plastic. You will be glad you did! We have been fortunate to fly first class every trip to Aruba and I don't know if we could fly coach after being spoiled in a big seat. It is worth the money, both heading down and returning.[/QUOTE]

    I used to upgrade with miles to first class when American Airlines flew direct to aruba. So now I just get the extra leg room in Jet Blue. Once I paid for a 1st class seat to aruba on delta and it was worth it. I paid $800 on Delta and it would have been $700 on Jet Blue with the extra leg room. So I said might as well spend the extra $100 and get food and booze..

    I have to try that adding an extra day each trip especially since the airfare keeps getting pricey. Although about 15 years ago I did go for 14 night and was lucky to get a time exhange at the same resort 2 weeks back to back. I didn't have to change rooms either. It was for the Divi Dutch but they put me in the Divi Golf so I would not have to change rooms. That was great I have to do that again..

    Just rent a house for 2 weeks over Christmas 2015 and New Years, rented via Flipkey.com. This past year we stayed at the Tamarijn and stayed an extra day, but I really need that day home before going to work and kids go back to school. Rented a 3 bedroom home with a private pool. Pretty excited. This year my mom will come. Will be nice for us all to have a bedroom, and lots of space.

    Also, just secured travel insurance via Allianz. We have used them in the past when flying to Aruba and filled two small claims which were paid, we get the basic or classic plan (I forgot that fast ). Since we booked the house first, then in the next few months we will book air, they allow you to call them, cancel your old policy and reissue a new policy that includes the air. You can book insurance at anytime before the trip, however you have 11 days to secure it after making your first payment on a place or you lose the family member death benefit (aging parents for DW).

    Just filled out paper work to renew my passport, and started to research vehicle rentals which I will reserve in the next month. Most places seem to have a 5 seat vehicle for less than $500 which is pretty good since it the peak of the peak season (so I assume).

    How do you book it so far in advance? When I try, the airlines don't go out that far in advance
