E

'they' refer to charter vacations ....having a 'would' at the end completes the comparison

D it is.

>> "they" is wrong because the referent is "cost". "it" seems to fit.

This question has been posted several times and I keep getting it wrong.

Vacations are plural so it has to be A or B.

(A) correctly uses "seemed" to refer to the past (hint:originally)
