Weston, FL (PRWEB) March 10, 2008
Once again, Marriott and Renaissance Caribbean & Mexico Resorts comes to the rescue during tax season by providing parents more for their money in paradise. Calling on families to invest their tax refunds in summer 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. This is sweet relief for families expecting just another summer of fun in the sun.
"The family vacation is considered to be one of life's necessities and what better way to spend a tax refund than on traveling with the family," said Michelle Bozoki, Director of Marketing Communications for Marriott and Renaissance Caribbean & Mexico Resorts. "A little value can go a long way and the exceptional savings available with the 1040 Family Travel Packages will deliver a summer vacation far beyond standard 'fun in the sun' expectations," added Bozoki.
According to research from the National Retail Federation, consumers will spend 40% of what they receive in tax rebates on goods and services, rather than paying down debt. The federal government will send consumers more than $100 billion in tax rebates this spring, promising most married couples (mom and dad) an additional $1,200 rebate as part of President Bush's "Stimulus Package."
With the "1040 Family Travel" package rates for a five-night stay start at $725 and offer a savings of up to 40 percent. Resorts require a minimum stay of five, four or three-nights. What's more, at all properties, families will also enjoy complementary daily breakfast for two adults and children 12 and under. This offer is not only an added bonus for parents, but kids too will receive extra amenities including an in-room family pizza party complete with movie and a nightly turndown service of milk and cookies.*
Each tropical destination provides the cultural elements and signature activities that are sure to make the family vacation memorable. 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 Caribbean and Mexico beachfront resorts in seven family-friendly tropical destinations, including:
