Vic's Tips 

Trips should include 4 main components:

Flights, Hotel, Transfers, and Insurance (yes... you need insurance...always)

2

Flights

If you live near more than one airport, try pricing out your trip with different origin airports. Here are some examples:

  • If you live in the NYC area, price trips from JFK, Laguardia, and Newark

  • If you live in Indianapolis, try IND, then ORD and MDW in Chicago, CVG in Cincinnati etc. Keep in mind drive time/gas/parking though. 

Give yourself 2.5-3 hours for your return layover with enough time to go through customs and security on international trips.

3

Hotels

See this link to get Vic's list of suggested resorts to help you identify the right one! 

Consider the different room categories!

  • Oceanfront vs Oceanview

    • Oceanview means you see the ocean in some capacity, how much can be deceiving. Oceanfront means you will have a full ocean visual from your room.​

  • Swim-out Rooms

    • Seems fun! But, ask yourself if you'll use this feature. If not, save your money and splurge elsewhere!​

Transfers

This is how you will get between the airport and your resort.

  • Shared Transfer

    • These will have many travelers on them and most likely will make a few stops on the way to your particular resort. They're the most economical option, but not the most fun.​

  • Shared Nonstop Transfer

    • These will be shared; however, will only go from airport-resort-airport. They will not stop at other resorts. They are a good middle ground between a shared and private, but may still be packed with other travelers.​

  • Private Transfer

    • This will just be for you and your travel companion(s)! It will be the nicest option, and is my recommendation so you can avoid making a long travel day even longer.​

  • Group transfers. 

    • If you are traveling with a group and will be sharing transfers. You may put a private transfer on one reservation then reach out to Amstar through this link to let them know the other passengers who will be on your shared transfer. You may also opt to book a transfer direct with USA Transfers! ​

Insurance

  • Credit Insurance

    • If you cancel your trip, you will receive a credit to rebook your trip at a later date. The credit will be for the cost of your trip minus the cost of the actual insurance. The credit usually lasts one year before expiring, and you MUST rebook again with Funjet.​

  • Cash Back Insurance

    • You will receive your money back if you have to cancel your trip for any reason, less the cost of the insurance. ​

Other Tips

  • Play with your dates! Saturday to Saturday trips vs midweek start and end. You might have better flight options on a weekend.

  • If you have more than 4 people for one room, split up into 2 rooms and it will almost always be cheaper than trying to get a family suite.
