Taste Vacations Alumni Benefits

Once you’ve taken a trip with Taste Vacations (or our sister companies Zephyr Adventures or Travel Montana) you automatically become part of our Alumni Club, and after you have participated in 20 trip days with of of our three companies, you are automatically elevated to our High Roller Club and are eligible for additional benefits. There is nothing you need to pay or do to join and the benefits are great.  We want to keep you as our travel partner!  We are proud and grateful that, on average, over 70% of our participants have traveled with us before.  We especially appreciate those who continue to entrust us to plan their vacations. Here’s what to expect as part of the Alumni Club:

Great Savings

  • 10% off next year’s Zephyr Adventures, or Travel Montana public group trips if you book by October 31 each year.
  • 10% discount for your second or third public group trips booked in the same calendar year with any of our companies.

Refer-A-Friend Credit

We like you. We think we’d like your friends, too. So tell them about us and you’ll receive a $100 credit to use toward your next trip for each friend who books a tour.

Your friends will also receive a $100 credit on their first trip!  Simply send us your friend’s name, address, and email and we’ll send them our information. Some rules apply: 1) Your $100 credit can be applied to a tour after your friends have paid in full. 2) Your friend cannot already be in our database (meaning they don’t currently receive emails or information from us).

Information, Please

You’ll be the first to know when we set our new tour dates.  You’ll also receive our alumni email newsletters or mailings, which provides you with faster notice and the inside scoop about the goings-on at our company.

Priority Status

If you are on the waiting list for any tour that is full, you will automatically be put ahead of those who have never traveled with us.

High Roller Club Benefits (after 20 trip days)

Thank You Gifts

When you reach the “milestones” of 20, 35, 60, and 100 tour days, you’ll receive a small but useful gift from us, ranging from a cool hat, to a hoodie, to a free domestic trip of your choice. (Okay, that last one isn’t so small, but it IS useful!)

The Best Rooms

  • If we have an odd number of participants on a public tour, as a High Roller you will be the first to receive a free single room.
  • Some hotels have upgraded rooms within our reservation.  We put our High Rollers in the best available rooms.

The Most Flexible Cancellation Policy

If you have to cancel a trip, but give us at least 31 days or more advance notice, you can apply all payments made to another adventure in the same or next two calendar years, less any fixed costs we have incurred. (Please note: some vacations, where we have non-refundable deposits, are an exception to this policy – see individual tours for details.)

Front of the Line

If a public vacation is full, you are automatically bumped up to the top of the waiting list if someone cancels.

You’re on Board

As a High Roller you will be part of our unofficial Board of Directors.  We are always looking for feedback as a way to improve our operations and to find out what where our travelers want to go, and we’ll include you in our two-minute email surveys or perhaps ask you to participate in a telephone survey or focus group if you are willing.  This is your chance to affect our future direction.
