Save Travel Costs By Using A Discount Travel Club

By Doris Rivas

Individuals that do a lot of traveling generally try to cut expenses as much as possible. There are several ways to save money on traveling expenses. One way to cut costs is to join a discount travel club. These clubs allow members to use their membership to get cheaper airfare, hotel rentals and car rentals.

Clubs bring in large numbers of frequent travelers to get discounts on a large number of services. The service providers, like hotels and rental car agencies, agree to offer the members lower fees to receive their services. The clubs point members to these businesses in return for their participation so they gain by maintaining a certain amount of business at times when they may not be fully booked.

Members get reduced rates at hotels in the network. This can help the hotels make money all year round and not have to rely on seasonal business to make a profit. If hotels are not located in areas with a high concentration of continuous traffic they tend to have open rooms very often. Using these clubs the hotels can fill these rooms and make more money.

Having the buying power to bargain with can lower car rental prices. For those who rent them for more than three days at a time these savings can add up quickly. Car rentals can get quite expensive when renting one of the higher end vehicles. Factoring in the member discounted price it is possible to either save money or opt for a higher end rental than usual.

Regularly dining out can put a strain on anyone’s budget. During the trip that lasts for a week or more the average person would eat out an average of twice per day. This can quickly add up, particularly if you are an individual who likes fine dining. Having a membership card that allows 5 to 10% off meals while dining in would certainly go a long way in saving money. Depending upon the membership you could even get priority seating with little trouble.

Some of these memberships will also offer accumulating rewards and rebates that can be used to purchase extra rental days on your hotel stays and car rentals. This takes the savings even further for each trip. They may also be used to get a free upgrade for both.

There are plenty of benefits that can vary from one membership to another. Concierge services are very popular, as well as a la carte dining as member benefits. Nightly turn down service and complementary bottles of wine and fruit baskets are sometimes extended freely to cardholders. These may seem like small touches but when they are all put together it can create a much more enjoyable stay.

If you’re looking for certain features then you are advised to shop around for your discount travel club membership. Each one will have what they offer clearly listed so that you can make a comparison quite easily. By doing your research you will be able to find a membership to fit your budget and your tastes.
