PRICING & BOOKING UPDATE:
- Both trips are EXACTLY THE SAME...going to Garden of the Queens,Saltwater Crocs & other cool sites, however the Jun 29-Jul6 trip has more spots on it for our group i.e 12. The Jul 6-13 trip is over half full and so we have only 8 spots on it.
- Because early sign ups are VITALLY IMPORTANT we are rewarding you for signing up early using some incentives SD.com worked out with the boat. (Shhsshh this is our little secret our members get to benefit from!)
- Unlike normal trips you ONLY HAVE TO MAKE THE DEPOSIT to hold your spot on this trip and of course make the progress payment TIMELY to Aggressor's Oceans for Youth. SD.com will track who's signed up, paid in full, and/or still need to complete things with OFYouth throughout the process to help you.
- The HUGE savings are at the end of the trip and will be in the form of a rebate to you. OFYouth will rebate SingleDivers.com the funds and we will immediately rebate you upon cleared payment in full and successful completion of the trip. No rebate can be given until you TAKE THE TRIP as the money sent in must match the person who sent it in and went on the trip. (This is part of the legal requirements of this program.)
- Trip ins will be VITALLY IMPORTANT to protect your investment. You will have EXTREMELY limited trip cancellation protection from Aggressor/and the People To People Exchange program so you MUST get trip ins to protect you. (See cancellation terms below)
