Travel Memberships Save You Money

By Wholesale Traveler Subscribe to RSS | February 29th 2012 | Views:

What is a Travel Membership?

This is a paid membership that gives you discounts on air travel, cruises, car rentals and hotel room rates. if you travel frequently, these discounts may save money for you and your family. Applicable rates will include all taxes.

How Does a Travel Membership Save Money?

After a family buys a travel membership, which can begin at $1,500, they can take advantage of vacation savings, especially if they travel more than two times in one year. These memberships most often work by providing discounts on airfare, car rental, hotels and condos.

To use a week’s stay in a vacation condo, a travel membership shaves about $700 to $1,300 off the cost of renting that condo. This discount is per condo, not per person. If, for instance, you and your family are planning a trip to Orlando, Florida, a stay at the Barefoot’n in the Keys – one bedroom suite – will run you just about $400, taxes included. Some specials run for specific time periods while others are unlimited and usable for any time of the year. The Clubhotel Bayernhaus in Bad Gastein, Austria, costs $699, taxes included and can be used at any time of the year.

Travel Memberships

Some travel membership sites offer different membership levels. These allow you to pay a price you and your family can more easily afford, giving you access to every resort you might want to visit. One membership level might last for three years, allowing you to enjoy a set number of vacation weeks per year. This membership can cost you nearly $3,000 for the life of the membership. Your membership is willable to your heirs, sellable if you find it necessary to sell and transferable to another owner.

Another membership level will cost you almost $5,000 for the life of the membership, which gives you acess to all of the resorts featured for that plan. This membership option is also willable, sellable and transferable.

Membership Costs

As you and your family investigate travel memberships, make sure you sign up with a company that has no hidden costs – if a discount option has time periods where the price you pay is higher, this should be disclosed in plain language. Ask about blackout dates. The travel membership company should disclose up front if any blackout dates are built into their membership plans as this can impact your potential savings on trips you take.

If you arrive at the resort and are charged an additional fee, this may be the resort’s fee and not that of the travel membership company.

How Travel Memberships Save Money

Because you may be offered unlimited guest weeks and discounts, you do not need to worry about restrictions or blackout dates. You can receive a significant savings by buying a travel membership for you and your family. In addition, you can give one or two of your guest weeks as a wedding or birthday gift to a family member.
