The upcoming travel season is around the corner. Military families are already beginning to plan their vacations and saving where they can is a huge part of that.
One resource that can help you save is a new partnership with the Department of Defense and travel website Priceline.com. Together they’ve launched a leisure travel site called “American Travel Services“.
This full service travel site will allow military members and their spouses to book leisure travel services at deeply discounted rates.
“The site will also offer privately negotiated deals on flights and rental cars, as well as vacation homes, apartments, cruises, vacation packages and more. American Forces Travel deals are accessible because of the site’s exclusivity to the military community and are only available to those who are serving, or have retired from service, in the United States military.”
There’s over a million deals available on the site and military families can save up to 60% on deals. You’ll also receive the benefit of 24 hour customer service, and up to 24 hours to cancel flights if you need too.
Who Can Use AFT
“Today, American Forces Travel is open to all military and military affiliated personnel who are eligible to use Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs. First-time users will be asked to verify their eligibility with the Department of Defense. Once verified, they are free to use the site to book discounted travel around the world. The verification process is secure and requested information will not be retained.”
How Using AFT Helps Military Families
We are big fans of shopping with purpose here, and if you’ve ever experienced a concert or some kind of event on post, chances are it was all in part to MWR. The great part about booking your travel services with American Travel Services is that each purchase generates a commission that will go back to the Quality of Life programs each of the different branches.
