Back in the day, if you wanted to get a great deal on a vacation or holiday excursion, you contacted a local travel agent. Those days are long gone. Now would-be explorers shop around on the countless discount travel websites to find the best vacation deals. However, if you have a Costco membership, you have easy access to fantastic travel deals that you might not find anywhere else.
Costco Travel deals are only available to Costco members. Those with Executive memberships are privy to even more perks, such as free food and drinks, room upgrades and spa credits. Costco’s vacation packages bundle travel options with accommodations and rental cars to bulk up the savings. The prices quoted even include taxes, so there are no big surprises when it is time to pay.
Be sure to read the fine print, as airfare is not included unless specifically noted in the package details. Add-ons, such as excursions from the vacation destination, meal packages and other options are available as well. Get your Costco card and your passport ready, and then go check out these five examples of the myriad types of vacation packages available.
