    sometimes a package works well.
    you have to do your comparison homework.

    MCMtours/Aruba4you has some great package deals.

    I’ve done it both ways and have had good luck with Expedia. Sometimes you can get a better price on the airfare through Expedia, but not always. If I have my heart set on a place like Manchebo I’ll book early and directly with the resort. Then I watch the airfare prices until I find a price I can live with.

    I've had exceptionally good success with MCM tours or Aruba4U.... same folks. I've dealt with Guy for the last ten years. Highly recommended.

    Can you book a timeshare property through them, as well?

    there are some travel places that have some timeshares available to them to rent.
    i know that the Tropicana is one of those timeshares and sometimes LaCabana is on the list.

    shoot them an email or better yet call them

    About Redweek.com...how do you distinguish between one listing and another? I'm not seeing any photos, locations or reviews, yet there are different prices.

    This is what I see when I enter Aruba & available between 11/1 & 12/28/18 First Timer-a42512fb-a287-4202-b38c-01867b1137dc-jpg Then just scroll down to see other listings, click on an interesting one!

    Jacki - what I mean is that once you get to the actual listing, there are no photos or anything so you know which unit might be better than another or to see what the particular unit looks like.

    I really feel like I'm missing something with Redweek - which is entirely possible.

    I see. I think you would need to go to the resort's website for pictures/layout of the room.

    I knew I must have been missing something on Redweek.com...I was browsing as a guest, not as a member, so information is limited.

    Other than Redweek.com, what is the best way to find timeshare rentals?
