Think Ahead for the Reunion 
Hassle-Free Deals on Car Rentals

If you plan to use a car when attending the 2015 Reunion, thinking ahead at this time will save you some dollars. We recommended that you have a vehicle to get around.

Here are a few other hints to consider: 

If you don’t find anything to suit your budget with the major car rental companies, you may want to try a consolidator. Car rental consolidators work much like those for airlines and hotels. They rent cars for major car rental companies but at a discount price. The down side is that the majority of them make reservations only through the Internet. 

Here are some others to try:

CheapCarRental also claims to have prices 30 percent lower than the rates of major car rental companies. They rent vehicles worldwide, including some vehicles you would not expect to see. Their selection includes cars, vans, limousines, heavy trucks, all terrain vehicles, and luxury cars. They can be reached at www.CheapCarRental.com

KAYAK.com/RentalCars has its website set up so you can compare prices of all rental companies before making your reservation. They can be reached at www.KAYAK.com/RentalCars

Hertz Car Rentals provides discount car rentals throughout the world. You can pick the class and type of car you would like and location where you would like to pick it up. Check them out at https://www.hertz.com/rentacar/reservation/

There will be ample methods of travel while at the reunion. However, should you choose to travel a little out of the area, then maybe you will need the rental car. Good Luck!

Flying to the Reunion? How To Find The Cheapest Flights

Many members that have pre-registered for the 2015 reunion have indicated that they intended to arrive by air. Flying obviously is the fastest way to travel but also one of the most expensive. It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg though. Airline consolidators specialize in selling discounted fares for major airlines, and you can save a bundle by using their services. Consolidators either buy airline tickets in bulk or have a special agreement with airlines to receive discounted tickets. In the past, consolidators only made their tickets available to travel agents, but many now offer tickets to the general public. 

Here are a few you may want to try: 

OneTravel sells discounted are tickets, hotel rooms, cruises, and vacation packages. Contact 800-929-2523 or www.OneTravel.com

l 800 Fly Cheap offers discounts on advance-purchase tickets. 
Call 1-800-FLY-CHEAP

CheapTickets Inc. specializes in selling discount tickets for travel within the United States. Contact 800-672-4327 or www.CheapTickets.com

SkyAuction auctions airline tickets, as well as hotel rooms and vacation packages, over the Internet. Check www.SkyAuction.com

And for you adventurous types, PriceLine.com allows you to set your own ticket price and take the chance they can find it for you. You have to be flexible enough to travel at any time on the dates you choose, and you must pay in advance by credit card. The ticket is non-refundable, so once your offer is accepted, there’s no turning back. Check with www.PriceLine.com for more information. 

Try one or more of the above ideas and tell your “war story” at the reunion.
