Save Time & Money With Costco Travel Part 1: Introduction

Did you know Costco members can save money booking car rentals, vacation packages, and cruises?

The Costco Travel program can be a great option for folks who book paid travel instead of redeeming miles & points.  Because you might save lots of money compared to booking through an online travel agency like OrbitzExpedia, or Priceline.

For example, team members Jasmin and Harlan each booked week-long car rentals through Costco Travel and saved $100 off the prices shown on other sites.  And you can potentially save much more or get extra perks with other travel packages!

Don’t Leave Southwest Points on the Table When You Rent a Car!

Lyn blogs about Southwest Airlines at GotoTravelGal.com.  And  she offers her free “Step-by-Step Guide to Earning the Southwest Companion Pass” to help you quickly and easily earn the amazing Southwest Companion Pass, which lets 1 person fly nearly free with you for up to 2 years.  

So I’ve asked her to share some tips on how to earn Southwest points when you rent a car.

Lyn:   Renting a car is a common activity for travelers who want an independent mode of transportation at their destination.  

Whether you’ll be sight-seeing around a US National Park, driving along the Pacific Coast highway, or just want the freedom to stop at the grocery and explore a destination on your own time, car rentals can come in quite handy.

Did you know it’s quite easy to earn Southwest points every time you rent a car?  But NOT all the points you earn will qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass.

Book Sixt Car Rentals Through Sam’s Club Travel and Save on Fees and Insurance!

Million Mile Secrets reader Prem emails:

I recently reserved a minivan for our upcoming Florida vacation with Sixt through Sam’s Club Travel.  When I received my confirmation email, it stated the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW), Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI), and other fees were included.

When I called them, they did not have more information on this, like the limits and exclusions.

They were even not able to confirm whether this is through Sixt or Sam’s Club Travel.
Do you have any information on these valuable goodies by Sam’s Club Travel?
