Rebooking Quickly

Looks like ABD is doing what DCL used to do (probably still do)... If you book your next adventure quickly enough after your last adventure, you get a 10% discount.

Don't know if everyone knows about it, but if you don't, it might be helpful if you are planning well in advance. We didn't know, but when the second set of papers came in the email reflecting the lower price... it was a pleasant surprise.

That's interesting! When I took my first ABD, I got a letter in my room telling me there was a 10% discount if I booked within 10 days, but at that point, the trips for the next year weren't out, and I wasn't booking another trip for 2008. But I hadn't heard anything about a discount like that since then. I wonder if they've done it all along, or just started up again?

Congrats on getting such a great deal!

I was just looking at recent navigators off the Western Caribbean Fantasy cruise and saw a blurb there about booking an ABD and getting 10% off as well, so it looks like you can do it whether you are rebooking from an ABD or a cruise.

Now I want to know if this applies to trips booked on DVC points.

Yes, there is a discount if you book another cruise within 3 days or a week (I dont remember the window period) after cruising. I've done it before but can't remember the percentage off. Not sure if it applies to ABD reservations using DVC points.

Yep, I've done that before as well and it is usually about a 10% decrease in DVC points on a rebooked cruise.

Hoping the ABD rebook after cruising is similar and will offer a 10% decrease in DVC points as well.

I was just surprised (and happy) to see any ABD discount offered to cruisers. We have two cruises planned next year and may have to plan on booking an ABD if they continue to offer that discount.

no luck

We were on the first family Greece ABD, and returned July 2. Loved it all and decided to book Egypt for Christmas 2013--and did it within a few days of our returning. On July 16, ABD announced a 10 percent discount for returning guests booking a trip within 10 days after returning from an ABD trip. We tried to get the 10 percent (met the requirements mostly--trip, book next trip within 10 days--) but no go as the deal was not announced until after we booked (and more than 10 days after our return). That's not a cheap trip so the 10 percent would have been great--but alas! However, we did book through Costco so we get a nice gift card from them, and ABD is providing airport transportation again (from San Diego to LAX is very nice indeed)...so, it was worth a shot. Our timing just didn't line up.
