One can never have too many vacations or weekend getaways planned in a year. According to Project Time Off, more than half of Americans are still not taking all the vacation time they’ve earned. In fact, in the past few years, those that did not use their vacation time left a collective 705 million unused days on the table. That’s a lot of relaxation time not enjoyed.
Make it a point this year to use those hard-earned days and save money doing so with your Farm Bureau membership:
1. Enroll in hotel reward programs
Choice Hotel and Wyndham Resorts both offers member a discount up to 30% on hotel stays while also providing you access to their rewards programs. Choice Privileges and Wyndham Rewards provide guests with free room nights, gift cards, room upgrades and more.
2. Be flexible wth your travel dates
Many hotels and car rental companies will provide better deals and deeper discounts during the week rather than on weekends.
A wide selection of hotel chains, including Choice Hotels and Wyndham Resorts, offer guests free breakfast with their stays. From make-your-own waffles to a variety of breakfast cereals, a quick stop by the lobby could keep a few extra dollars in your pocket.
Whether you’re traveling over a holiday weekend or visiting a bustling city, booking your travel early will likely result in extra savings. Last minute travelers often end up paying the most for their plans.
It might not always be the perfect time to travel but booking your stays during the off season will likely get you the best rates. The holidays, spring breaks and summer vacations are all great times to travel but you’ll be traveling with the masses and likely paying more for it.For more ways to save on your travel plans visit our travel section on the Michigan Farm Bureau website at michfb.com/MI/Travel_Benefits or call us at (888) 805-4864.
