Re: our 2nd trip to Hawaii:  Wed. Oct. 24-Mon. Nov. 5, 2018, $3,418, per person, double occupancy.  It is the exact same trip and is exactly the same price as the 1st one (except the insurance, see below).  This price, $3,418, include the round trip air from St. Louis, all of the taxes & fees, & the inter-island flights.  But this price does not include insurance. The price for the insurance is 10% of the price of the trip: ie. $3,418 X 10% = $341.80.  So $3,418 + $341.80 is $3,759.80, the price of the trip including the insurance.  An extremely BIG benefit of this insurance, it covers the 1st & 2nd deposits.  The insurance policy YMT had before did NOT cover the deposits.  Your 1st $250 deposit will be when you make your reservations & if you want to take out the insurance you will need to pay for it within 12 days.  The 2nd deposit is the same $250, it is due April 24 & final payment is due July 24.  The deposits are refundable if you have taken out the insurance.  For more details/questions, contact Carolyn, 618-928-3282, carolyn@b-jaytravel.com or Tammy, our Your Man Tours, (YMT) contact person: 888-393-5288.  We will stay in touch.
