    I want to do the monthly payments but is it what i want to give each month or do they send me a bill of what i owe each month? Also i live in CT as well and was wondering if it would be cheaper to drive down instead or fly?

    Hi Jennifer!  Thanks for your question!  You will not receive a monthly bill and it's totally up to you how much you want to include on each payment.  The only rules are you have to put a $200 deposit down when you make your vacation package reservation and it must be paid in full 45 days prior to your arrival date.

    As far as flying vs. driving, there are many factors to consider such as the size of your family, cost of flights, etc.  If you can find a great rate, I would recommend flying.  It is awesome to hop on a plane and arrive in Florida 3 hours later!  That being said, there are times when it is cheaper to drive although less convenient.  

    From Hartford, I always fly Southwest or Jet Blue.  They usually have some great prices and have several non-stop flights to choose from.  For my upcoming trip, I was able to get flights for $89 each way on Southwest so it pays to monitor the prices.  

    When driving, we find it best to leave around 2:00 a.m. and head down 95.  If you can get past the Baltimore/DC area before rush hour traffic, we find the rest of the trip to be pretty easy.  It's up to you if you will stop somewhere for a night when driving but we have multiple drivers and can usually make it down without stopping for a night now.  However, we find it more difficult to drive straight through on the way back, probably because we are sad our vacation is ending!

    Have a wonderful vacation!  Diane
