Use Your Membership for Tours
While you can research your holiday destination, there’s no replacement for the insider knowledge of a local. As a Member, you can use your Points* to book guided tours through Collette, a travel company that’s provided exceptional experiences for over 100 years.
Your tour will be led by Collette experts, who have a passion for delivering some of the most memorable destination-driven excursions in the world. These tours will showcase the best spots to immerse in culture and adventure, from African Safaris to the pyramids of Giza. There’s even an opportunity to get to know fellow Members when you book a Member-exclusive tour.
Eligible Members now receive credit toward cash purchases when they book a tour through Collette using Points. The amount of credit you receive is based on your membership level:
• Executive Members receive up to US$100 in credit.
• Presidential Members receive up to US$150 in credit.
• Chairman’s Club Members receive up to US$200 in credit.
Credits are per person, per tour.† If you and your guest both reserve the tour, you will each receive the credit, which can be used toward attractions, airfare, hotel stays, tour extensions, insurance waivers, and more.
Both domestic and international tour options are available, so you can experience your destination your way. Journey through Egypt and Jordan, where you’ll take in the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx up close. Or board a private yacht in the Land of the Incas to the Galápagos Archipelago, where you’ll enjoy 4 nights of exploration before delving into ancient cultures at Machu Picchu, the fabled lost city. Crave adventure? Embark on 12 lively safaris in Africa to search for animals in their natural habitats, then immerse in cultural experiences by visiting a bead factory and local tribes — all during your excursion to Kenya and Tanzania.
Internationally, you can spend holidays in Nashville, Tennessee, exploring the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, or head to Gatlinburg for a parade and dinner show before wrapping up your holiday amongst the natural wonders of the Smoky Mountains. Prefer to spend your time along the coast? Stay on Mackinac Island, complete with a horse-and-buggy tour, or visit Maine to savor local delicacies and sip vintage wines.
