Our Diving Holidays


We are the only UK diving holiday specialist for Aruba and the Dutch Caribbean. We have a wider choice of accommodation, diving services, activities and excursions on the islands than any other company. We are the preferred tour operator for many resorts and consequently we have the best prices. For more information about us, where we go and the service we offer please see the tabs at the very top of the page. We offer you a wide choice of accommodation and services - plus flexibility in travel dates and length of stay. We are the ONLY UK company to be able to genuinely "tailor" your Dutch Caribbean holiday itinerary. Other companies claim to "tailor" make holidays but limited choice and no flexibility is not "tailor made". We can prepare a holiday plan according to your wishes.


                     
                      Our e
xperience and local knowledge enables us to organise all your diving requirements. 
                         We are the only UK company with the ability to genuinely "tailor-make" your holiday. 
                                       There is no substitute for personal experience and local knowledge.


      


Diving Holidays .............which include the diving !

Many travel companies advertise "diving holidays" - but don't include any air ! Perhaps you are expected to hold your breath under water for two weeks ! We will give you a quote that includes the "extra" elements you want for your diving holiday. Our discounted dive packages are designed to give you a clear and honest price for a diving holiday itinerary.


A typical Fun Travel Aruba diving holiday itinerary might be :

*   return flights from any of 15 UK airports
*   accommodation
*   breakfast each day (optional)
*   boat dives
*   vehicle hire   (inc. taxes and insurance)
*   airport transfers
*   airport taxes
*   airline fuel surcharge
*   airline ticketing fee
We can book all your requirements including; boat dives, tech diving, courses, special excursions etc.  It is cheaper than buying on island and will ensure availability when you arrive. Boat dives are one or two tank in the morning - with a third in the afternoon. Our prices include tank rental, air and weights. Aruba offers a lot to each and every diver - click the Diving tab for more information.
Solo Divers
As almost all diving on Aruba is boat diving - solo divers will not have a problem - diving with small groups. In our experience solo divers soon have a new best friend from Montreal/Amsterdam/wherever.

Accommodation
We visit Aruba regularly to inspect hotels and resorts. We cater for independent travellers and divers - and offer smaller hotels. We do not offer the high-rise chain hotels. We will not offer accommodation which we are unable to personally recommend to our customers. We are happy to quote for accommodation and flights for those who do not feel the urge to submerge.
Flights
These are scheduled flights. You choose the number of nights for your holiday. We search all flight options for the period you wish to travel to get you the best fare and schedule.
Please click "What We Do" - "How We Work" - for more information. You may book your own flights if you wish.
We have a contract with KLM with special rates, terms etc., and for that reason we cannot offer flight only.


Vehicle Hire
We recommend hiring a vehicle but it is always your choice. A vehicle gives you the freedom to do what you want - when you want and is not expensive. When quoting prices, hire companies, resorts and travel companies do not include insurance in the price - an important consideration for your peace of mind and for when comparing prices. That could be another nasty shock when you arrive ! Our vehicle hire prices include CDW cover. A range of vehicles is available. Please see "Getting Around" above for more information.



Prices

We are a small specialist company with personally gathered local knowledge and a personal service. We hope this "makes a difference" and is of real value to our customers. But we know price is important. So:
  1:  We set our prices lower than the prices you will see on the websites of various hotels/resorts/dive centres/vehicle hire companies.
        You are immediately guaranteed a better price. 
  2:  We use a better exchange rate than credit cards and far better rate than individuals get when paying resorts in the Caribbean 
  3:  Transaction charges on credit cards are much lower in the UK than the Caribbean.
These three key points mean that our prices can save you around 10% on the "booking direct" price
and on the prices of other UK travel companies !


Many websites offering holidays quote prices exclusive of tourist taxes, service charges and insurance on vehicle hire  -   this can add as much as 43% to the price !   Some quote without airport taxes and airline fuel surcharge now over 50% of the air fare - a very nasty shock when they add this to your (final) holiday invoice. This is an excerpt from a website of resort/hotel in the Caribbean
"Prices are excluded 10.6% service charge over the basic rate. Prices do not include tourist tax of $6.50  p.p.p.night. There is a 6% charge to the amount if you decide to pay with your credit card."

We include all these taxes and charges. "Like for like" we have the best prices.    Booking with us is easier - safer - cheaper.
