Costco Travel Worth It?



I'm sure many of you have a Costco membership and shop there regularly but did you know Costco also does travel. Up until recently I had only heard about it but never tried using it until someone strongly suggested checking it out. I had wrongly assumed they only sell travel packages similar to what Groupon or other travel agencies offer. But Costco actually sells rental cars, cruises, hotels and many other travel options. As The Affordable Traveler, I spent several hours comparing sites to determine if Costco offered deals as good as their bulk food. And this is what I discovered...


We have an upcoming trip that takes us to Texas and we will need a rental car so I started to shop around. As I usually do I first started with Kayak.com which also brought up Hotline.com and Priceline.com results. Check out the results below and pay close attention to price and size of the vehicle.
