HOW TO BOOK A TRIP WITH SINGLEDIVERS.COM

 

To book a trip requires 3-5 easy steps...

 

  1. Join or renew as a premier member. Need help? Click HERE to CREATE A MEMBERSHIP  and HERE to UPGRADE A MEMBERSHIP.
  2. Log into www.singledivers.com  HERE (not the surface interval forums here ) and use the world's ONLY fully automated trip booking system to either pay a trip deposit or sign up in full as well as sign up and pay for any extras such as nitrox, extra dives, etc. Simply place in the cart...choose your payment choice (echeck or credit) and proceed to check out. (Note want a 3% cash discount? Choose echeck and proceed to payment and the cart amt will be reduced by 3%)
  3. Fill out all your dive, travel and rooming forms online in our secure system and they are saved for your future trips PLUS they enable us to really help you find a great dive buddy or roommate based upon the preferences you list!
  4. Manage your trip via our "MY TRIPS" section of the website to make progress payments and completer your online forms.
  5. Stay up to date via several tools we use including our "community forums" and our forum's email client called PM's (private messages). Each trip has an OFFICIAL TRIP PM which keeps all trip updates in one chronological blog/thread and sends a courtesy email copy whenever it is posted in. We also use a subforum for each trip that contains topics related to that trip in our legacy forums so that it is easier to find information related to each trip and to communicate with us.

ORDER BOOKING QUESTIONS?

 

Didn't get a 2nd email entitled THANK YOU FOR YOUR PAYMENT?

 

This means your payment did not go thru. Please try again.

 

Get several 'order acknowledgements'? Does this mean I am booked more than once?

 

No. In fact you are not booked at all unless you get the THANK YOU FOR YOUR PAYMENT email. Our system will generate an order attempt acknowledgement every time you try to place your order. (The system was modified from a shopping cart for merchandise so is not tied to our payment system hence two systems that work together but are not seamless.)

 

Have other questions?

 

You can check out our FAQ / HOW TO section HERE or use the Red Help Button AT THE TOP OF WHERE YOU ARE READING THIS POST or email admin@singledivers.com.

 

How long will it take to get a reply back?

Here is another way of saying what was said above by one of our uber club helpers USING THE JAN 2022 trip as an example to someone already a basic or non-upgraded member:

 

First thing you need to do is subscribe as a Premier Member (there are other perks besides access to the Booking Page):

From the Home Page navigate the tabs "FORUMS" -> "MEMBERSHIP" -> "UPGRADE MEMBERSHIP"
Log in the Forums page that appears just as you did to post this reply
Once logged in the Forums, select the Premier subscription for $35 a year then scroll to the bottom and click the button to continue
Select payment method (Paypal is processed automatically, the Payment Gateway is a legacy portal, secure but requires manual processing)

Once you receive a processing confirmation message you can use your same Member Name and Password to log in the Home Page, go to the "TRIPS" tab and click Book Now under the Cozumel Jan 2022 listing.

NOTE: On the Booking Page if you elect to Pay in Full you will be eligible for early booking and/or cash discounts!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DISCOUNTS & DISCOUNT DISCLAIMER: (FOR THE JAN 22-29, 2022 TRIP ONLY...Every trip is different)
You must use the code when you book as they are not retroactive after you sign up UNLESS otherwise stated like the member rebate etc.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but the accounting expenses of manually trying to do the discount is far exceeding the discount amount making it very prohibitive to manage this way. So please be sure to use the discount code AT TIME OF INITIAL BOOKING.
NOTE: The EBD or Early Booking Discounts can only be used as follows:

  1. When paying in full
  2. When you first sign up
  3. By the deadline given. After that deadline they disappear and the code will not work. (So please leave a buffer if you need to xfer money or have questions.)
  4. Only one (1) coupon code can be used per order
  • Pay in full at time of Booking by Oct 20, 2021 for FREE BOAT NIGHT DIVE worth $67 or FREE GUIDED SHORE DIVE off D/O or S/O (Use COUPON CODE: 22CZMNITEEBD1...MUST SIGN UP FOR NITE DIVE WHEN SIGNING UP FOR THE TRIP)
  • Pay in full at time of Booking from October 21st to Nov 20, 2021 for FREE GUIDED NITE SHORE DIVE worth $22 off D/O or S/O (Use COUPON CODE: 22CZMGSNDEBD1...MUST SIGN UP FOR GUIDED NITE SHORE DIVE WHEN SIGNING UP FOR THE TRIP)
  • Book anytime: Get (1) chance to win a FREE Stream2Sea Travel Product Pkg (drawing at resort)
