MTA Benefits' travel deals are now better than ever
There’s light at the end of the tunnel. As we see the relaxation of emergency measures in the coming months, there’s hope that we’ll soon emerge from our long COVID-19 hibernation.
We’re all pandemic-weary souls to some degree, but we’re getting ready to go out and see new things. Last year, 72 percent of Americans1 put off their summer vacations. The result of this pent-up demand is a predicted 37.5 percent increase in travel spending this year — and another 14 percent increase in 20222. If you’re thinking about planning a getaway this year, now is the time to beat the rush!
Don’t forget that MTA members are eligible for savings that include access to discounted hotels, car rentals, destination activities and more.
When it comes to booking a hotel, for example, you’ll save on everything from five-star resorts to economy lodging. And many rooms come with free cancellation privileges right up until a few days before you arrive — so you don’t have to worry if your plans change or if you just change your mind.
MTA members get cash back on hotels
We recently launched our new cash-back platform, giving members additional savings whenever they book a stay at one of 900,000 hotels worldwide.
You’ve never heard of getting cash back on a hotel booking?
This is a first in the hotel industry, and MTA Benefits is the first to offer this exclusive benefit. Our benefit partner Access® is among the largest travel wholesalers in the world. Our decade-long relationship with Access allows us to get the best prices and pass along those discounts in the form of cash back. Check it out for yourself. You’ll usually find lower prices on the MTAB website than you’ll find at sites such as Expedia®, Kayak® and Hotels.com®.
Many factors influence hotel rates, so sometimes you’ll find a killer rate with only a small amount of cash back. But at other times, you’ll find a great rate and cash-back rewards that will take your breath away. For those who consistently book hotels using this program, the savings over time can be substantial.
Here’s how it works:
1. Log in or Register: Go to mtabenefits.accessdevelopment.com and click HOTELS.
2. Search: Choose your destination and travel dates. You’ll find hotels listed at the public price, the discounted price for MTA members and with the cash-back amount you’ll earn.
3. Select: Choose the hotel you want based on the brand, amenities, location, or even the amount of cash back available. Save a little or a lot; it’s up to you.
4. Book: Pay for your stay, then watch for the cash-back amount to be credited back to your credit or debit card after your stay.
Remember that your travel discounts include savings of up to 50 percent on some of the world’s best brands for car rentals, entertainment, activities, flights, cruises and more. You’ll also find local deals, with savings at more than 60,000 popular restaurants, 200,000+ shopping locations and 50,000+ recreation and entertainment opportunities across the nation.
