Act fast to get the best travel deals!

Here’s a tip to make your travel to INSPIRE2010 even more affordable…. BOOK NOW! There are some great airfare and hotel deals available right now. You should be able to get to Cancun from many U.S. locations for less than $500 round trip. Here’s some examples of roundtrip airfare cost from members who have recently booked their travel and  registered to attend INSPIRE2010:  Boston to Cancun $384 on American,  Detroit to Cancun $475 on Delta/Northwest, Phoenix to Cancun $450 on USAirways and Charlotte to Cancun$440 on US Airways.  If you book early on sites like Travelocity, they will protect ticket price and refund (don’t forget to read the fine print) you the difference if the ticket prices go down.

There are also deals available for your hotel stay. On its own, RSPA’s group rate is great. It’s $199 for an ocean view or $235 for the same room with breakfast and internet included …  not too shabby.   However, if you can find a better rate book it!  For example: Marriott recently ran a 40% off promotion. If you book a room under a promotion just let the front desk know that you are with RSPA when you check in at Marriott Casa Magna. That way, attendees get the best deal and all of the rooms count toward our room block. 

What’s a room block? When RSPA or anyone books a venue for an event there is a financial commitment for a set amount of revenue from rooms, food and beverage. When we negotiated the lower rates for this year’s event we were also able to get the hotel to agree to count any rooms booked on a promotion to our room block. Which means a better deal for our member attendees and it counts toward our room block.

So book your travel NOW to get the best deals for travel and hotel.

See you at INSPIRE2010,

Joe F.
