(NAPSI)—Investing a little extra time and effort in planning your next vacation can pay dividends, both while planning your trip and when you return.

That’s the word from experts who say vacations can add to travelers’ productivity when they return refreshed and rejuvenated.

One way to make sure you are getting all the benefits your vacation experience has to offer is to join a travel club before you go. Look for one that provides members with discounts on travel, accommodations and more that would not be available to those doing their own booking.

For example, there’s a travel club called Last Minute Travel (LMT Club) that offers its members rates that are up to 55 percent less than other booking sites.

Members can get discounts on hotels, cruises, car rentals, vacation homes, attraction tickets, flights—even Broadway show tickets. These are rates that are not available to consumers through the well-known search comparison sites. They are available, though, to club members.

The LMT Club has been in business for more than 20 years and there are presently over half a million members. There are also employee-benefit companies that are corporate members and pass the savings on to their employees.

Some examples of more than 40,000 hotel deals are: 4-Star hotels in New York up to 48 percent off; 5-Star hotels in Cancun up to 38 percent off; 4-Star hotels in Rome up to 49 percent off; 5-Star Asia-Pacific hotels from 53 percent off; and attractions more than 40 percent off.

Due to contracts with top brands, LMT Club is not allowed to advertise these low rates, so members have to log in to see prices, and it offers a 30-day money-back guarantee for any cancellation reason. It’s easy to join. Simply go to the promotional site, www.joinlmtclub.com, complete the registration and you’ll automatically receive a reduced membership of $10 (normally $49.99), and you’ll receive a hotel coupon code for $15 off your first booking.
