What & When: In the spring of 2013, the Office of Continuing Education at Wofford College will be offering an eight day trip to Cuba through the auspices of Insight Cuba. Participants will need to arrive in Miami, FL for a pre-night on Friday, April 26 so that we can be prepared to depart early on Saturday, April 27. Learn more about the trip at http://www.insightcuba.com/sample-program-pinar-del-rio/ or open the attachment with this email. 

Cost: The cost is $4199 per person (double occupancy) or $4899 per person for single occupancy. 

Available Spaces: Insight Cuba is holding 20 spaces for our group but the maximum number on this tour is 24. Due to the small number of available spaces, interested persons should make reservations as soon as possible. 

Deposits & Reservations: Each participant has to individually call Insight Cuba when making a reservation. Insight Cuba is the company that has the permit for travel to Cuba so we must work through them. Their phone number is 1-800-450-2855. When calling, you will need to tell them that you are with the Wofford College Alumni Association traveling through AAA Carolinas and you want to book and pay a deposit for Havana and Pinar Del Rio for April 27, 2013. You will need passport information when booking. The deposit will be a credit card payment of $275 to Insight Cuba. 

Additional deposit: Additionally, travelers flying from Charlotte to Miami will need to pay a $200 deposit per person to AAA Carolinas by August 1, 2012 in order to pay for the airline tickets from Charlotte to Miami. This latter deposit can be sent to Linda Burch, AAA Vacations, 2 Tanner Road, Greenville, SC 29607. Linda’s phone number is 864-404-4240 and she can be reached by email at laburch@mailaaa.com.

Breakdown of major fees: 
Land rate in Cuba: $2995
Air - Miami to Havana: estimated to be $600, which has been the highest cost for the charter flight and it could be less.
Pre-night Miami: estimated to be $100+
Air - Charlotte to Miami: estimated to be around $370
 

Once you are in Cuba, you can expect to spend very little out of pocket. No souvenirs can be brought back – only books. All meals are included in the price. You will be sent a confirmation form and registration sheet that you can return.
