Nov. 20: This holiday season, members of the National Corn Growers Association can save on travel expenses by using discounts available exclusively through NCGA. Through partnerships with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and the exclusive NCGA Worldwide Hotel Discount Program, NCGA offers members valuable savings on car rentals and hotel bookings whether they travel across the country or even to many locations around the world.
“NCGA works hard to increase opportunities for farmers in the market place, but we also strive to offer a wide array of benefits to our members,” said NCGA Growers Service Action Team Chair Brandon Hunnicutt. “Growers benefit from our work to grow the market for corn and maintain their freedom to operate, but we also want to provide special opportunities for our members that reward their support of our organization. Seeing friends and family makes the holidays a special time, and we want to provide discounts that make these magical moments more affordable.”
The exclusive NCGA Worldwide Hotel Discount Program, which was introduced as a benefit earlier this year, allows NCGA members, their friends and their families access to a worldwide inventory of hotels at exclusive discounted rates. Whether travelling for work or pleasure, individually or in a group, domestically or abroad, members can take advantage of savings that may exceed 50 percent and average about 15 percent below publicly offered best available rates.
“Just a few weeks ago, I was traveling with friends when I found that we had more companions than rooms reserved,” said NCGA Director of Research and Development Dr. Richard Vierling. “Out of town for a weekend of college football, I was afraid that the number of fans flooding the city would make it difficult to find a room or, at the very least, expensive. So, I tried out the Worldwide Hotel Discount Program benefit. Right from my phone, I was able to book a room at the hotel directly across the street from my friends and, I ended up spending far less on what I found to be better accommodations.”
Members can also save on car rentals when using the NCGA discount offered through the organization’s partnership with Enterprise Rent-A- Car. This benefit offers a discount of five percent on rental fees at Enterprise neighborhood offices and 10 percent on rentals from their airport locations.
