SAVE THE DATES!!! (And see below for pricing and details!)
What does that mean?
It means that we have locked in these dates to this destination and THEY ARE FIRM!!! All that remains is for us to open the trip up for booking. We typically do that 6-9 months in advance but we are trying to open trips up 9-18mo in advance depending on the destination and timing.
This will allow our members to better plan AND be assured that they have a guaranteed spot on their dream trip.
How does it work?
If you would like advance notice when this trip opens up so you can secure a spot early since some sell out in as little as 24 hrs., simply post in the SAVE THE DATES thread/topic that you want to be added to the notification list and we'll add you to the list. NOTE: You can not add yourself to the list...but you can add a post/reply that you want to be added and one of our amazing trip coordinators will add your name to the master list.
How am I notified?
We use our site's internal messaging system called a PM (private message) to notify members when a trip is open for booking. It protects your identity, it hides your contact information but it allows EVERYONE to see the same information and you can see real time what others are saying without revealing your own contact information. We encourage you to upgrade to our PREMIER MEMBERSHIP level which is only $35 a year and qualifies you for a $25 member rebate after every trip if you file for it. PLUS you can get the earliest notification that a trip is open. We require it to go on the trip so upgrading early gets you first access to limited spots!
If you are still a BASIC MEMBER we will send you an email notification that the trip is open and ready for signing up. It normally takes us a day or two to create these emails and get them out to all the basic members wanting advance notification, but we will get it out to you.
How do I upgrade my membership?
If you want to be sure of early notification here is how you upgrade your membership.
1. Make sure you are logged into the site. (You can tell if you are logged in because you see your sceen name/display name in the upper right of the forums.
2. Click on the MEMBERSHIP tab across the top of the forums under the SingleDivers.com logo and under the login area.
3. Choose premier or any of the other upgraded membership pkgs and then follow the prompts for payment. If you choose paypal you'll be upgraded immediately by the system. If you choose the SD.com payment gateway you'll be upgraded usually the next business day since its a manual process.*
*If using the SD.com payment portal you will be asked for a 'trip ID number'. Just enter 1 and it will allow you to complete the payment for $35 if choosing the premier level.
