Here are all the ways to save money by planning your travel through Costco.

Take Advantage of Costco Vacation Packages

Costco offers great deals on vacation packages for destinations around the world. For example, Costco is currently offering a vacation package for The Royal at Atlantis in the Bahamas that comes with a number of free perks: children 11 and younger stay and play free, complimentary access to Aquaventure, access to the fitness center for two adults, movies at the Atlantis Theater, casino lessons and wireless internet access. The package also includes ground transportation to and from the resort. Prices vary depending on the dates and length of your stay.

Look For Deals With Costco Shop Card Offers

Costco has a number of vacation packages that will offer you money back in the form of a Costco Shop Card. The exact amount of the Costco Shop Card is calculated during the booking process, so it will vary by where and when you stay.
