I first got the idea of going to Aruba from the First Choice brochure. One of their cheaper hotels, the Mill Resort, looked promising. I wasn't that keen on the charter flights with Air 2000 because they left mid-week, so I decided to see if I could do it cheaper myself on the Internet. I found flights with KLM for £558.50 that left midday on Saturday and got back around 2pm on Sunday. I also contacted the Mill directly. They quoted me $102 a night, so I decided to book the flights and leave the accommodation until later.
