Do you have children? This applies to you either way, so keep reading!
We love traveling here at Alaska Baby Rentals and are always trying to find ways to help our Alaskan families have more fun and save money when they travel. One of our very favorite programs is Club 49 from Alaska Airlines. Have you heard of it?
Here are 3 reasons you should join:
1) 2 free bags. Why pay baggage fees if you don’t have to? The 2 free bags apply to each Club 49 ticketed passenger and this is an average savings of $50 per person!
2) 2 annual one way certificates at 30% off flex fare prices
3) Weekly sales to destinations both within Alaska and to the outside for Club 49 members only
We also highly recommend that you register your child for the airline mileage plans by the time they turn age 2, if not before. Our children have quickly earned enough miles on their own mileage accounts to be redeemed for a ticket and that means more family trips!
As an additional tip on flying Alaska Airlines, they have two rows designated on most flights as “family rows” that they can block to keep your family seated together, so when you are checking in, ask about this and they are usually extremely accommodating.
Any questions on family travel or gear, let us know and we will be happy to help! Looking forward to hearing about all of your family travel adventures!
