Summer travel is heating up, both for families and for business travelers. Cambria Suites, part of the Choice Hotels family, recently released a survey about family travel. Almost half of respondents have taken a family summer vacation (49%), and nearly one quarter of adults (24%) report that they usually need a vacation when they return from a family trip. Seven percent of respondents even look forward to a “solo” business trip as a way to recover from a family vacation. Hah! However, experiences of summer family vacations are overall very positive. More than half (65%) of Americans with family vacation experience find them relaxing and admit that there is “nothing better” than a great family vacation.
To help people get on the road this year, regardless of whether they are traveling for business or fun, Choice Hotels is offering travelers a chance to earn a $50 gift card after just two separate stays. When guests sign up for the Choice Privileges rewards program and stay two separate times from now through August 15, 2012 at any Choice brand property, they’ll earn enough bonus rewards points that they can redeem for a $50 gift card of choice to use towards gas, dining or shopping. You can earn an unlimited amount of gift cards during the promotion, which sounds like a good deal to me!
