    Best site to book our trip

    We are a group of 8 that will be coming to Aruba staying at the Tamarijn. We are coming from Western New York flying out of Buffalo or Rochester. We have used cheapcaribbean.com in the past. Is there one that you have used that you recommend? We are price shopping right now.

    We stay at the Divi and fly out of Boston on Jet Blue. Sometimes I book directly with the resort and then with Jet Blue. Other times I find I get the best price through Expedia. I also don't have a problem checking prices multiple times during the day until I get a good price. It's surprising how much airfares fluctuate in the course of a day. For our trip in November I booked the cyber Monday sale with the Divi for 50% off and have plenty of time to find the right airfare.

    I like to use kayak to get a comparison of flight and hotel prices. Flights really aren't going to change no matter what site you book. When I find my flight, I check that airlines vacation deals against the hotel prices I find on kayak. We have booked direct through the hotel, and we have used hotels.com. Our friends got a great deal on Delta Vacations. I usually have a spreadsheet where I add hotels, airline with any luggage fees where applicable. MCM Tours have great customer service by phone (not as responsive online), but we found less expensive packages elsewhere.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    one thing we found, especially with united & even when it was continental (really, our only game in town for non-stop in NJ), but the airlines always had the lowest or the same as the lowest price on any of those sites. Now we don't book our places to stay with them, just the air so there's no point in surveying other sites for us.
