Welcome to another episode of Travel Tip Tuesday.

This is Kerwin with Cruisinaltitude.com.

Today’s tip is going to be about Hotels. (Join the hotels Loyalty Programs).

So, when you travel, its always good that you are a member of the Frequent Stayer Programs of the hotels.

And the reason for this is tantamount. Let’s say you were arriving in a destination first thing in the morning for example.  Most hotels will charge you an extra amount to check-in early or they won’t allow you to check-in until 3:00p that day.  Well usually, if you are a member of the frequent stayer program, they’ll let you check-in early (subject to availability of course).

Another thing too is that they’ll let you check out late which is sometimes very key if you have a late afternoon flight from say an international destination or just from anywhere.

Another thing they will let you do is that some of the hotels have these Clubs and you can get complimentary breakfasts at the clubs, cocktail hour at the clubs in the afternoons, and complimentary WiFi.

So when you think about it, the rates that you pay might not be so much as you get all these little amenities added to it.  So the key is when you travel, make sure you become a member of the hotel programs.

Now there’s lots of them out there, see the list below this video.  There’s the Starwood program, Marriott Rewards, Hyatt Regency program and the list goes on and on.

So when you go make sure that you sign up for the hotel frequent stayer programs and ensure that you get credit for every stay.

This is Kerwin with Cruisinaltitude.com, have a great trip and its the Holiday season so have a great Holiday.

Happy Hanukkah.
