Backstory

In 1987, his parents immigrated from Antigua to America so he could get the best education
possible. After securing his PhD in 2015, Collin took 30 friends to the tropical paradise he calls home
to celebrate with family. A TIME Magazine feature later, what was intended to be a one time
"Graduation Getaway" has grown into one of most critically acclaimed group trips for diverse millennial
travelers. Today, it's said the only way to experience Antigua & Barbuda's exotic cuisine, beautiful
beaches, and thrilling nightlife is with Collin Devon Events (CDE).

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does All-inclusive offer me?

The packages cover 4+ star hotel/resort accommodations, elite transportation, tasteful meals & drinks, electrifying events, photos, videos and so much more!

I applied several days ago. How long will it take for approval?

Please allow 2-3 weeks for us to confirm additional capacity with the hotel, airlines and other local businesses where going over capacity would cause an issue. Once we have that information, an email will be sent out to the 150+ that are awaiting approval. We rather take our time in approving than over promise space we do not have. Thank you for your patience.

I saw a charge added to/removed from my credit card. Does that mean I am approved/denied?

No. When approved you will receive an email and text confirmation. The "charge" on your card is a temporary hold. If you are approved, the hold will go through. If you are not, the hold will be removed. If you are not approved within 7 days, the hold may disappear from your account. This does not mean you have been denied. The charge will reappear if/when more spots become available and you are accepted.

Can I change my dates after I paid my deposit?

Yes, there is a $100 change fee. Please email info@poweredbywhim.com with the subject line "CDE - Change Dates."

Can I add/remove a flight to my package after I paid my deposit?

Yes. There is a $200 change fee to remove a flight. There is a $100 change fee to add a flight, pending availability. As of now, group flights are sold out. Please email info@poweredbywhim.com with the subject line "CDE - Change Flight."

Can I change my credit card on file?

To change your credit card on file, you will have to make a payment and it can be as low as $5. Once you have made the payment, we will be able to take automatic payments from the most recent card on file.

I forgot to list my roommates information. Will I be able to still room with them?

Yes, there will be another opportunity for you to tell us. Don't worry :)

How many people are assigned to each room?

Two is standard. Three and four can be assigned to each room if desired. Single rooms may be available down the line, but will come with a significant upcharge due to extremely limited availability.

My friend wasn't accepted and now I don't have a roommate. What do I do?

You will be assigned a new roommate. When assigning rooms we take into account personalities and common interest.

What are the "+fee" mentioned in my checkout summary?

Fees are 10% + $3 per transaction. Paying up front saves you $50.

What is the cancellation policy?

All sales are final. Any payments made are non-refundable.

I forgot to mention who referred me at registration. What do I do?

There will be another opportunity for you to share your referral with us. We will contact you when the time comes.

Who is eligible for the referral discount? What are the benefits?

The referral program is only for those who have already been on a CDE trip. You get $100 off for each referral. You are eligible to have the ENTIRE cost of your all-inclusive package covered. To be clear, that is the cost of everything EXCEPT the cost of the flight.
