Save Time & Money With Costco Travel Part 4: Cruises

I know lots of folks who love to vacation at sea.

Cruises are popular because there’s so much included in the price, like meals, onboard entertainment, and unlimited use of the water slides!  So it’s a great option for a family getaway.  Plus, many cruise itineraries include visits to multiple destinations.  And you only have to unpack once!

If you’re planning a cruise and are a Costco member, I recommend checking options on Costco Travel.  Because similar to warehouse club’s vacation packages, you can often find the best prices and get extra perks.  For example, a Costco Travel cruise might come with a credit to use onboard or an all-inclusive beverage package.

Save Time & Money With Costco Travel Part 2: Vacation Packages

I recently shared how the Costco Travel program can be a great way for folks to book paid travel.

Besides saving money, booking a trip through Costco Travel sometimes comes with extra perks.  For example, you can get a resort credit or room upgrade, which are potentially not available when you book through an online travel agency like OrbitzExpedia, or Priceline.

And Costco Travel makes it convenient to book a vacation.  Because in one quick search, you can get upfront pricing for airfare, hotels, rental cars, and excursions to destinations like Disney World, Europe, Hawaii, and many others!

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!
