Use Your Tax Refund For Family Travel With This Deal
This tax season, Marriott and Renaissance Caribbean & Mexico Resorts is giving parents a compelling reason to take their family, and their tax refund, on a summer vacation. Calling on families to invest their tax refund in travel, the Caribbean and Mexico resort group is offering a “1040 Family Travel” package boasting savings of up to 40 percent with added value perks at a choice of nine properties.
“Research shows that Americans are using their tax refund to travel,” said Michelle Bozoki, Director of Marketing Communications for Marriott and Renaissance Caribbean & Mexico Resorts. “Families are one of Marriott’s most important travel segments and these exceptional offers will help parents make their vacation dreams a reality this year” added Bozoki.
According to research from the Travel Industry Association (TIA), one in five (19%) U.S. adults who received a federal, state, or local tax refund in 2006 planned to use some or all of it to take a pleasure or vacation trip. This translates into 20.9 million U.S. adults. On average, travelers with children under 18 in their household planned to spend $794 of their refund on a pleasure trip.*
With the “1040 Family Travel” package rates for a five-night stay range from $770 to $1,590 per room and offer a savings of up to 40 percent. What’s more, at all properties, moms and dads will also save on meals with complementary daily breakfast for two adults and children 12 and under. And the dividends aren’t just for parents. Kids can cash in on an in-room family pizza party complete with movie and a nightly turndown service of milk and cookies.*
Money saved on accommodations and meals can be used for booking memorable family activities. Whether it’s swimming with dolphins in Cancun, climbing a volcano on St. Kitts, swinging through the treetops in Puerto Vallarta or partaking of a submarine tour on St. Thomas, guests will find no shortage of great activities for the entire family.
The “1040 Family Travel” Package is available at nine beachfront resorts in seven family-friendly tropical destinations, including:
- JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa
