Read that yesterday. It's a good jump but they have not had a raise in a while so I guess it is what it is.

It has been 9 years since a raise in rates

There's an extra charge on Sundays.

Is the "surcharge" for Sunday from airport to hotels still $3, or has that gone up also? If so, what is it now?

I read it on a blog by Angelo Limon. I get and email every Sunday with news from Aruba. His site is vacationsbyaruba.com and you can sign up and receive very interesting blogs every Sunday from him. The taxi rate sheet is from a July 22nd post.
I hope I did not break any rules by posting his site.

Thanks, froggy.
I googled it and one site had the new rates posted, but they didn't say anything about the Sunday "surcharge". Do you know anything about that? Still $3, or has that gone up also?

Very useful!!

It appears that these rates will be in effect for several years before another increase. Can the rates schedule be pinned on the BB so it doesn’t drop off?

Thank you.
