Q:

I see Book by 2/19 or Promo Value Exp., what's the difference? And departing out of San Francisco is $375, is that round trip or one way to Miami?

Patricia B.  asked on  Jan 31, 2013

A:

After February 19 the value you paid for the voucher is still valid, but the $100 - $140 (depending on the option purchased) savings associated with it is no longer valid. The cost to fly from San Francisco is for round trip flights.

Q:

Can we put three people in a room and also, if we find someone that wants to join us, can they join in the next couple of weeks? And if there are 4 people in a room, is there an extra fee or just if we have a third person? If there are any cancellations for the april trip, can we change to that one?

kathleen b.  asked on  Jan 31, 2013

A:

Yes, we can accommodate three people to a room, each person would purchase a Groupon. We cannot accommodate four passengers to one room, you would need two double rooms and four Groupons in total. Because we need to issue your non-refundable, non-changeable air tickets within 24 hours of booking, you would not be able to switch to the April departure if there was a cancellation.

Q:

If we wanted to add a week of time to use a week at an interval property could we add the time on our own and book a flight one week later?

jeanie w.  asked on  Jan 30, 2013

A:

If you wish to extend your stay, we will gladly arrange a late return. The cost is $100 per person plus any difference in airfare. When you make your reservation let us know the date you wish to come back, and our air department will check the availability and let you know what the additional cost will be. Be sure to let us know if we can help with additional hotel or touring arrangements during your extended stay.

Q:

I am interested in this trip. Can you tell me the cost for 2 people Leaving JFK 3/9/13 and returning 3/16/13. Also the price if my 19 year old daughter would like to join me and my husband? Thanks

Maria M.  asked on  Jan 30, 2013

A:

The first available departure we have for this program is May 21. The additional cost to fly from JFK is approximately $170 per person; this is based on live availability and is subject to change at any time. If your daughter would be joining your room, you would purchase 3 Groupons, and everyone would pay the double occupancy rate. If your daughter would have her own room, in addition to the 3 Groupons there would be a $399 single supplement fee.

Q:

If our family wanted to do this trip (two kids, ages 11 and 14) for the June date, how much would it be? Would they be able to share our room or at least have adjoining rooms? What does breakfast entail? Are transfers to airport and excursions included or do we need to rent a car?

Katie C.  asked on  Jan 29, 2013

A:

The total cost for four passengers on our June departure is $4,676. We can request the hotels to provide adjoining rooms, but they cannot accommodate four people to one room. Breakfast is usually buffet style. Transfers to and from the airport and to each hotel are included. Optional excursions are booked through the hotels; some excursions include transportation.

Q:

My cousin and I want to book this trip for my parents as a surprise, but both of us have $1,000 limits on our credit cards. Is there any way to make payments on trips like this or to split the payment between multiple credit cards?

Rebecca d.  asked on  Jan 29, 2013

A:

Groupon requires full payment at the time of purchase. There isn't an option on Groupon to split the payment between two cards.

Kristin W.  from  Merchant  replied on  Jan 29, 2013

A:

Sorry for the trouble. Unfortunately, you cannot split up the payments.

Q:

If we wanted to do the Manuel Antonio Optional Extension, how would we purchase that via Groupon? Do we purchase the original trip (7 days) through the "buy button" and then add the optional feature later when we make the final payment along with paying an extra fee for flying from another city? I'm guessing that this will happen a week or so after paying for the trip online? Or am I wrong? Could you clarify that up for me please? Thank you so much for your time in advance.

Emily S.  asked on  Jan 28, 2013

A:

If you want to add the Manuel Antonio Extension, that would be done directly with us when you redeem your Groupon. You would purchase the Groupon for your departure date, call us to redeem it and let us know your desired departure city and that you would like the extension. You would then be invoiced for the cost for the flights and extension; payment is due 75 days prior to departure, if we are already within that time frame payment would be due within 72 hours from redeeming your Groupon.

Q:

I,m interested in sept dates. I did not see an option to choose which departure date. Is there an option. Also when do I have to provide passport info I have to order one which takes about six weeks.

Ellen U.  asked on  Jan 28, 2013

A:

Option 6 is valid for September 10 or September 24, for $1,149 per person. We need your passport information as soon as possible, so that we can issue your airline tickets and lock in the fare. If you do not have a passport yet, when you make your reservation, you can provide us with a photocopy of name portion of the application so we can see exactly how your name will appear.

Q:

What is the additional fee for flying out of Houston ?

Jasmin B.  asked on  Jan 28, 2013

A:

Flights out of alternate gateways are based on live availability and costs vary from one minute to the next. Let us know what departure date you are interested in and I can request our air department to research the current live airfare.
