Oh Costco, how we love you—let us count the ways: as the purveyor of bulk goods at fantastic prices, we heart you so, so much. And we have reason to love Costco even more, because Costco vacation deals mean you can score deep discounts on luxury vacations. Here’s the skinny on how to take advantage of this fantastic perk.
Costco members can get up to a 30 percent discount on select luxury hotels. And these aren’t just hotels in the U.S. But you have to stay at a Hilton, Hyatt, Fairmount, Raffles or Swissotel luxury hotel/resort to take advantage of Costco’s discounts. Along with hotel discounts, members can also get reduced rates on cruises and rental cars.
Here’s how the Costco vacation discounts work. First, you’ll need an active Costco membership (Don’t have one? Get yours here). Then visit the Costco Travel website. From there, select your destination, region, size of your travel party, departure and return dates—and voilà! Costco works its magic to show you a list of available, discounted accommodations to meet your criteria.
Along with lux hotels, you can also book a totally family-friendly vacation package at the House of Mouse: Costco members can get featured deals on Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort packages. While individual deals can vary and change depending on availability, members can score a variety of package deals, such as a double room upgrade (with free eats for the kiddos) with the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort Package (complete with park tickets) to up to a $245 Disney gift card with the Disneyland Resort Hotels Package.
Along with Disney World and Disneyland packages, you can also get members-only deals from Adventures by Disney Vacations and Universal Orlando Resort. Check out the Orlando: Universal’s Family Suites at Cabana Bay Beach Resort with Universal Tickets deal—it comes with a Costco cash card and early park admission!

Booking through Costco travel seems awesome already. Disneyland package came with all confirmations and itinerary. Park hopper tickets, character dining vouchers , 60th anniversary luggage tags, coupons and includes free picture from our trip and 60th anniversary land yard and pin. Can't wish to go soon! #disneyland #costcotravel #costcodisney
Keep in mind, the prices are subject to change and different deals may pop up and then go away. Snag these deals while they’re good, and book your family’s next amazingly awesome—and wallet-friendlier—vacation while you can.
