Five Summer Travel Tips for a Seamless Family Getaway

Let’s face it – sometimes the stress that comes along with travel planning can take some of the fun out of your family vacation. Summer is here, and we all want to plan every detail of our time away to meet the whole family’s expectations. Well, your best travel companion (aside from your family of course) bringing convenience and providing you with peace of mind at every stage of your trip may come from somewhere unexpected.

1. Leave the Planning to a Professional – And it Won’t Cost You
Dreading how much time it takes to plan a trip? Call your Personal Travel Advisor/ to research the best family friendly hotels, resorts and beaches for you, your family and your budget.

2. Don’t Pay More Than Necessary
You buy something in the hotel lobby that you think is unique…only to find it’s sold elsewhere for less. With Price Protection, cardholders are reimbursed up to $250 per claim, up to 4 claims per year. Not to mention, Extended Warranty duplicates a manufacturer’s original warranty so you can get your memento repaired or replaced.



3. Return with Priceless Memories
Who doesn’t want VIP access when on vacation? With unique experiences spanning restaurants, theater, museums and golf our Priceless Cities program will deliver you an unforgettable time away that will leave you planning your next trip before you arrive home.



4. 24/7 Protection
We know that safety and security are a prime concern for vacationers. With Identity Theft Resolution Services and Zero Liability for all credit and debit cardholders, you’ll never be held accountable for unauthorized charges.



5. Experience Smooth Sailing from Coast to Coast
Nothing’s worse than being away, wanting to purchase that special memento and finding out the merchant doesn’t take your card. Accepted at twice as many locations as American Express and with more ATMs worldwide than anyone else, your MasterCard is your passport to “priceless” purchases and family experiences.
