You may have detected that the kids and I vacation a lot. And you may question how it is that I am able to do this. There are a lot of various ways I have found to save on travel, but it is often times military travel discounts that have assisted our family afford to travel.
Gov Vacation Rewards – Military Travel Discount Site
One of the sites I use is Gov Vacation Rewards a military travel discount site. They have some ridiculous deals on their site. For example a vacation to Mexico at a nice resort in a studio room for only $7 a night! That is pretty much an unbeatable deal! I checked this resort on three other websites and the cheapest price per night I could find was $117. Gov Vacation Rewards beat that nightly rate by $110!
How about a weeklong stay in a one bedroom condo room at a resort in Spain for $399! I checked the price per night on another site and it was $273 a night – 4x more than the price on Gov Vacation Rewards.
I could keep going with the examples, but I am sure you get my point. I just used the site to book two nights in Bangkok. I was having a really hard time finding a room for a family of 5 over there without spending a lot of money and on their site I found a room for under $150. We are going to be staying at a beautiful hotel in a 3 bedroom unit for #149 a night. Here is a photo of the hotel we are staying at, Anantara Sathorn Bangkok Hotel!
So what exactly is Government Vacation Rewards? It is a travel discount program for government employees, veterans, and any active duty military person. They have discounts at hotels, resorts, cruises, tours, car rentals, and even on airfare. This is the only site I know of with discounted airfare for military.
