We love Costco for many reasons: bulk foods at great prices and a surprising array of non-food goods among them (who knew jeggings could be so comfy?). But one of our favorite Costco perks? Costco vacation deals! Here’s the skinny on how to take advantage of this fantastic perk.
One of the newest perks, Costco members can get up to a 30 percent discount on select luxury hotels. And these aren’t just hotels in the U.S. 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.
How do the Costco vacation discounts work? You’ll need an active Costco membership, then visit Costco Travel website. From there, select your destination, region, size of your travel party, departure and return dates and Costco works its magic to show you a list of available, discounted accommodations to meet your criteria.
Along with luxe 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.
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!
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.
