Once you’ve purchased your Travel Savings Access Code (TSAC), you will immediately receive an email containing a unique Activation Code and Pin Number, along with your URL to the website to activate your account.
After activating, you can log in to search for a variety of listings and book your trip. Here, you will see the price as well as an option to COMPARE PRICES that are posted live on other Public Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), such as Expedia, Priceline, etc.
The money you will save by using our private travel booking engine is shown in GREEN (in the box on the right). It is the difference between what “Public OTA’s” charge and the prices offered on our “Private OTA”.
Need proof? Simply go to any Public OTA (i.e. Expedia.com), conduct a search for the same property. Please keep in mind that hotels base their prices on three factors: The type of accommodations, the length of stay, and the time of year. Be sure to input the exact same criteria when performing a comparison search.
Your actual Travel Savings per property and selected dates are displayed in the box on the right.
Instead of paying $3,042, you would only pay $, 2,576 for the trip below.
Absolutely NOT! You do not need to subscribe or join a membership to access our Private OTA. Simply purchase any Travel Savings Access Code package of your choice at 10% of the face amount (i.e. $10 for $100 Access Code).
*Please note that once you create your account, you will not be able to add more to your Travel Savings with that specific account, you will need to create separate account (using a different email address) when you want to purchase more (TSAC).
No. Your Travel Savings Access Code is the money you save when you or a user books a hotel/resort/car rental/more ⏤ see screenshot below for an example.
If you purchased $500 in Travel Savings you would only end up using $220 on the booking below.
Instead of paying $3,120, you would only pay $2,900 for this trip, and you would have $280 left for you to use towards another booking.
Possibly, it just depends on the booking. For hotels, it depends on the time of year, the type of accommodations, and the length of stay. On many week-long packages, you may be able to use the entire Travel Savings at once. When you choose a property, you’ll be able to instantly see how many Travel Savings will be used towards the booking (always displayed in green text).
If you need to change or cancel your reservations after booking, you can log into your account and click on the View Reservation link. In case the reservation has not yet occurred, you can click Cancel or View in order to update any information. If you need further help, you will be able to contact the support group that manages your account.
Travel Planet Network only sells access to the PRIVATE BOOKING ENGINES. We do not manage any hotel reservation or accommodations.
Please note, if a reservation has already occurred, you will not see the Cancel link.
No. For the best deals, we recommend you call the airlines directly to book your flights. We also recommend using Google Flights to check deals.
According to a FareCompare.com study, the cheapest days for flights are Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.
No. The person activating the savings code must be the person traveling and/or using the service.
Once you activate your savings code, your account remains locked to the first and last name you entered upon sign-up. Your savings code is NOT allowed to be transferred and the personal information can’t be changed. Therefore, you must use the name on your government-issued ID when activating your savings code.
Unfortunately, you cannot use points or miles.
Once you’ve placed your booking on our Private OTA, and experience any issues with your booking, you can contact support in your account or contact the provider directly (i.e. hotel, resort, car rental company, etc.).
Please note: We do not collect any money on the bookings. The money you spend with us only provides you access to the savings that are offered towards bookings.
It depends. Some hotels may or may not have upgrade specials after you book. We recommend you call the hotel directly before booking on our platform. We simply display the discounted rates the hotels provide us.
When using our platform, you will be able to see what most PUBLIC OTAs (Expedia, Booking.com, etc.) charge for you to compare the savings that are offered to you. If you’re skeptical, you can always go to their sites and check for yourself.
We offer TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION to our Private OTA Booking Platform, without joining anything.
You are always free to purchase additional Travel Savings Access Codes (TSAC) by creating another account using a different email address each time you are looking to save on your next booking.
We will be offering a paid membership program in the near future. Thus, you will be able to access even greater savings without having to purchase Travel Savings Access Codes. The cost to join will be a one-time $139 setup fee, along with a $47/month subscription fee. There will be NO CONTRACT, meaning you will be able to cancel at any time.
No. Only one code can be used per account, and using a different email address each time per account.
Each activation code requires its own account, using a separate email address each time.
Most online booking engines (called OTAs – Online Travel Agencies) sell discounted bookings at retail pricing. Our booking engine is A PRIVATE OTA – which is not available to the general public. However, we do offer the same properties which are priced BELOW what Public booking engines charge.
All private and public OTAs earn a commission when someone books a trip on their platform. PUBLIC OTAs buy advertising with part of their commission. Commercials cost a lot of money to produce and advertise, which is precisely why Public OTAs markup the discounted prices they receive.
Instead of spending loads of money on advertising, we simply require a small fee to give you access to the discounted prices on bookings.
