When I start getting the itch to travel, I start planning by browsing through all of my favorite booking websites like RoomShare, Expedia, and Skyscanner. This is also my go to activity when procrastinating. However, in the midst of a recent time-wasting, vacation planning session, I stumbled upon an unexpected marketplace for travel…
Believe it or not, Costco– the major wholesale retailer known for the world’s most coveted food samples and incredible deals on enormous bulk items- has an entire travel division within their corporation. Costco Travel features search tools used to discover vacation packages, hotels, car rentals, and cruises for travel in every corner of the world including Fiji, Spain, Costa Rica, and Las Vegas. The search tools on the site list vacations that can be tailored to very specific time or location desires/restraints or pre-planned trips with minimal fuss included. Costco Travel offers a multitude of deals for those looking to take a quality, affordable, or a more so last-minute trip to another part of the world. I personally recommend taking a look at the cruise options, provided by every major cruise line (Carnival, Disney, Royal Caribbean, and many many more.)
You do need a Costco membership to book accommodations, activities, and vacation packages on the Costco Travel website, but if you don’t have this, don’t fret. With or without a membership Costco Travel is a source to find and compare offers from the largest travel companies in one convenient place. Costco claims to offer cheaper options than competitors, with no hidden fees. I can’t guarantee that Costco’s prices will beat out all others, but I can say that I would feel confident booking through Costco because of their reliability and continually superior quality of products and customer service.
Costco is no longer just a place to find deals on groceries and home goods. The retailer has expanded to travel and I am excited to sample these services.
For those who are skeptical of the travel options that Costco has available, look to RoomShare– a trusted site for booking hotel reservations throughout the United States. RoomShare promises affordable accommodations and a network of new travelers to engage with.
No matter where you’re traveling, make the most out of your time and money. Look for the best deals and look to RoomShare to help you out.
