    Philadelphia to aruba

    Just booked from Philadelphia to Aruba for July for $315 round trip. Usually go from pittsburgh but it was $600 round trip. Will drive the extra 3 1/2 hours and do a hotel that keeps your car for about $50 more than regular parking for the week. I know it's a drive but for that price I will do it. That's savings is half the cost of my next trip to Aruba over thanksgiving. My husband has the same problem as I do with our love of the Island so it's all good.

    a no brainer indeed!!! kudos.

    yrs ago when we were living in e. central maine, we would drive the 3+ hours to boston to fly on AA nonstop or to jfk and then on to aua for around $350.

    if we had flown from portland to aua via philly or atl it would have been a few hundred $ more per ticket (using delta or us air)

    like you, it was much more economical for us to drive the few hours and stay at a hotel that offered park/sleep/fly.

    Price is still there for November!! Just booked $315 Sat-Sun. Direct flight down and a quick stop in Charlotte coming home. I guess that helps make up for the times I paid twice that amount.
    Next Aruba trip to the Marriott Surf Club July 2018.
