SAVE ON YOUR SUMMER TRAVEL PLANS

If your plans for the summer include some well-deserved travel to give you rest and recuperation for the past nine months with your students, here is some help from member benefits to stretch your summer budget.  Whether you wish to work in a cruise, take in some major league sporting events, fly east (or west or north or south) to visit relatives, spend some time at a resort (a week or just a few days,) or just save some money while resting up at home on a “staycation”, follow these tips to save some money:

 

With the Educator Access Discount Program, you can save on hotels, condos and resorts, golf, dining, movies, recreation, and other every-day pleasantries.  Go to the IEA Member Benefits website, ieamemberbenefits.org scroll down and click on the picture of the IEA membership card to take you to the Access website.  Register with the last 7 digits of your association membership number, your personal e-mail address, and create a password.  You only need to register once.  Each time thereafter you sign in with your e-mail and password.  Spend some time there and explore the hundreds and thousands of discounts available.  The site will also show you how to download an app that is GPS friendly and will help you save money wherever you are.

Indulge Your Wanderlust—on a Budget—with NEA Vacations

Want to travel but money’s tight? Let NEA Vacations find you the dreamy discounted vacation that will work for your budget.

As we head into colder weather, you might already be dreaming about a spring break getaway or maybe even planning a full-blown summer vacation. Before you make any plans, check out this new money-saving benefit for NEA members: NEA Vacations. It’s a one-stop-shop that will help you secure the best vacation deals available—whether you’re looking for a flight, a hotel or resort stay, a cruise or even a guided vacation

Exclusively available to NEA members, educators can nab discounted rates for cruises, hotel stays, resorts and various other attractions around the world simply by logging in to the NEA Member Benefits website at www.neamb.com and using the portal to go shopping.

What’s NEA Vacations all about?

NEA Vacations is an online shopping portal offering the guaranteed best value on a whole slew of vacations and related excursions—everything from resorts to hotel bookings to guided vacations to cruises.

If you’re a cruise fan, you’ll be pleased to know that the website sells discounted voyages from the top cruise lines out there, including popular river cruise lines AmaWaterways and Viking and mainstream oceangoing cruise companies such as Carnival, Celebrity, Disney, Holland America, Norwegian, Princess and Royal Caribbean. Cruises aboard a number of luxury lines, like Regent, Seabourn and Silversea, are also offered. With more than 21,000 cruise departures, there is sure to be one that fits all of your needs.

A variety of guided vacations are also available from well-known travel companies like Globus, Insight Vacations, Cosmos, Monograms, Brendan Vacations, and Tauck.

If you prefer independent land vacations, the travel portal still has you covered. Just search for your destination and date of travel to browse a variety of hotels and resorts, or you can purchase a package that includes your airfare and hotel. Checking deals in Las Vegas last July, we found rates at the well-rated Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino for just $72 per night.

What are NEA Travel Dollars?

To sweeten the deal, you can earn NEA Travel Dollars to use as partial payment on purchases at the NEA Vacations portal. You can then apply those dollars to reduce the cost of future travel. You accumulate NEA Travel Dollars simply by acting on emails from NEA Member Benefits that encourage you to keep your records current or ask you to participate in other ways. For example, if you have a new email address, updating it on the NEA system will earn you $100 worth of Travel Dollars, while sharing your birthday will earn an additional $250. You can also earn Travel Dollars by opting in to receive the NEA Travel newsletter or by purchasing non-travel products and services. See more details at NEAMB.com.

Members can accrue up to $1,500 in Travel Dollars annually and portions of it can be used as partial payment for travel services. (Airfare and car rentals are excluded.) Travel Dollars expire a year from when they are received. As part of NEA Vacations, you can also earn a variety of incentives such as Onboard Credit to use on a cruise, an upgrade to a bigger hotel room or free WiFi.

What can you expect from NEA Vacations?

If you’re like most educators, you are very busy. You may not have time to search all over the web for the best deal on flights and hotels. That’s why NEA Vacations is so valuable. You can make all your vacation plans, at discounted rates, all on one website. You’ll make your plans faster and save money doing so. And, for most purchases, you’ll earn NEA Travel Dollars, which can be spent at NEA Vacations the next time you shop.

It’s important to note that travel packages are not limited to NEA members alone. You can bring your family along on your adventures and still make use of this new benefit. However, you must book their travel. So start saving those NEA Travel Dollars now to use when booking your family trip. Plan an Orlando outing so you can say hello to Mickey and Minnie or stroll the streets of Hogsmeade at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ at Universal Orlando®!

You can also purchase associated travel insurance through NEA Vacations. Costs vary depending on the provider and ages of travelers. You will see the insurance policy specific to your booking and can decide if you would like to add it to your trip.

So hop on board–your next great adventure awaits. Visit NEA Vacations to find out more!
