The Daniels Take Aruba

Jun 17, 2024 to Jun 23, 2024
Riu Palace Antillas


With watching air pricing for the last few months for your Aruba travel dates, I we're in a place where we can secure air with a monthly payment option. With DTW being departure location, I was hoping for better rates to be available by now with Delta, but as of today, that isn't the case. I will still monitor Delta's group rates as well, so that in the event they are comparable and I can make the switch from American Airlines to Delta without any penalties, I will definitely do so! So for all of my Medallion Members (present company included), I'm sorry.😉

Notes about Group Rates and Travel Dates

The primary travel dates for this group are from Monday, June 17, 2024, through Sunday, June 23, 2024. While the majority of the group is departing on Monday, June 17, 2024, those that are departing on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 are able to receive the same group rate.

While, the pricing is for economy seats, you may request pricing for Premium Economy (equivalent to Comfort Plus) or Business Class and still be able to use the monthly payment option. Once your deposit has been processed, simply send an email to request the upgraded fare.

Comments: Aruba is one of the few places where you will clear US Customs before departing. Therefore, when you arrive in Miami, you won’t have to clear customs and will arrive in a domestic terminal. If you’ve ever flown out of Toronto for example, it’s the same process. Full details can be found here:

Deposit and Payment and Cancellation Information

The price per person is $875.00 inclusive of taxes and fees. In the event that a new tax or fee is implemented by the airline, you will be informed, and pricing will be updated. 
February 8, 2024 - Please be advised that there has been an increase to the ticket price for new additions. The price is now $917.90. An email outlining the change has been sent.

To secure your space, a deposit of $100 per person is now due for Economy, $150 for Premium Economy and $200 for Business Class. For Premium Economy and Business Class travelers, I will confirm that pricing upon request and update the invoice for the difference in deposit after the initial deposit is received. 

Monthly equal payments will follow the same timing as the resort option, by the 15th of each month, with the final payment due, May 15, 2024. Once the deposit is received, your updated invoice will reflect the monthly payment due dates and amounts.  If the final payment isn't received by May 15, 2024, a $50 late fee per person will be AUTOMATICALLY added. If the final payment isn't received by May 17, 2024, the air booking will be cancelled and all payments will be forfeited. 

On the booking form, simply complete names as it appears on your passport. There is no need to fill in the passport information at this time. You may bypass this field. 

If you deposit and cancel the air portion:

Before March 15, 2024

Your penalty will be $50 per person

Between March 16 and May 14, 2024

Your penalty will be $250 per person

After May 15, 2024

Your penalty will be the full amount of the ticket

If you cancel the air portion after you've made full payment, and before May 15, 2024, your payments are non-refundable as your seats are fully ticketed. 
As always, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thanks!!!
