    Hi! Welcome to the Aruba.com Community Forum!

    I have to say, I don't think that price is too bad! But I get really paranoid and tend to book a little early. I paid $450 back in Feb for Newark-Aruba with a stop in Orlando!

    That's the price we like to pay. This trip we settled on $663 per person round trip direct from Boston. Fares have been really high this year. Right after I booked it went up and now it's over $800 pp.

    Prices are higher this year. We always (last 15 years ) fly to Aruba in August from Hartford. I usually pay between $450 and $550 . I have flown all the airline options (delta,United, aa, southwest ) but like southwest the best because of earlier return times. Jet blue doesn't go to Bradley and out of Boston is way too expensive for an over nighter and parking options. So...We paid over $125 more this year and don't really understand why. Not many options on Fridays and leaving out of Hartford is also limited choices. It is what it is and also bought on a Tuesday and tracked prices for a while back in Feb/Mar but they only went up in price since early Feb. and we bought in late March. I never buy that early but they were going up daily. Hope this helps. ����������
