When was the last time you dreamt of getting away for a few days? Whether those dreams include visiting a child at college or taking a trip to see our great country, members of the National Corn Growers Association can save on travel expenses by using discounts available exclusively to association members. Through partnerships with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and the NCGA Worldwide Hotel Discount Program, NCGA offers members valuable savings on car rentals and hotel bookings to locations across the country and even many locations around the world.
“NCGA works hard to increase opportunities for farmers in the marketplace, and we also strive to offer a wide array of benefits to our members,” said NCGA Engaging Members Committee Chair John Linder. “While farmers benefit from our work to grow the market for corn and maintain their freedom to operate, we also provide special opportunities for them that reward their support of our organization. Sometimes, even in these stressful economic times, people need the boost that even a few days away can give. By making travel more affordable, NCGA helps farmers explore, stay in touch or renew their spirits with a few days on the road.”
The NCGA Worldwide Hotel Discount Program allows NCGA members, their friends and their families access to a worldwide inventory of hotels at exclusive discounted rates. Whether traveling 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.
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 may offer up to a five percent discount on rental fees at Enterprise neighborhood offices and up to a ten percent on rentals from their airport locations.
