Passport America Camping Guidelines The numerous RV Parks that are associated with Passport America are independently owned and operated. Each of them grants our members a 50% discount while staying at these locations, and in return we ask our members to grant them the following courtesies- - Passport America campers leave their campgrounds as clean as they found it. Passport America has built an industry reputation for having friendly, responsible members so we hope that all members will assist us on carrying on this tradition. - Likewise, members should please treat other RV Park guests and staff members with the courtesy that they deserve. If there is ever any type of problem at a campsite or with another park guest, we ask all members to please let the management know so they have the opportunity to take care of the situation. - The Passport America locations listed on our website have the right to deny the 50% discount if the RV Park is already full or close to maximum occupancy. While they always try to honor the agreement whenever possible, sometimes they simply can not accommodate all requests during a busy week. Members should call ahead to ensure that there is plenty of available room; some RV Parks will accept reservations. - All Passport America members must follow the rules and regulations laid out by each RV Park they visit. Some of them may have very specific rules that they expect their guests to follow, and we ask that all members familiarize themselves with each location's requirements when arriving at the park. - The Passport America discount can not be combined with any other offer. The 50% savings is currently the largest discount within the industry, so please do not ask the park owners to accept other discount cards on top of that. It simply is not fair to them since they are already granting our members half off the retail price of lodging. - On occasion, some of the RV Parks listed at Passport America may be sold to new owners. In this instance, it is up to the current ownership to decide whether or not they wish to participate in our program. While this type of scenario is rare since we contact the participating RV Parks regularly, members should contact our offices if they happen to run into this situation. - While there are no limits on the number of new members or parks that a member can submit to our referral program, please remember to have the responsible party fill in the referral section so proper credit is granted. Finally, we ask that all of our Passport America members to use their program benefits as much as possible. This organization is not like a health club or one of those businesses where they hope that customers sign up and never come back; the Passport America staff has worked hard to ensure that all members receive an unprecedented value for their money. The only way that happens, however, is for them get out there in the wild outdoors and see North America on a regular basis. Even though an average of a three night stay saves enough to pay for a membership for the entire year, Passport America sincerely hopes that all members will be able to get a lot more use out of it than that.
Good Sam Club
The average Good Sam member saves well over $1200 a year just off of using their benefits package for everything RV related. The Good Sam Club is so confident that their members will save money by joining that they offer a 100% money-back guarantee on the annual subscription price. If for any reason one of their customers does not feel like they received their money's worth, all they have to do is contact customer service to have the funds placed back into their banking account. Of course, for most members the focus is not on savings; they join to be a part of the largest RV community on the planet. Well-versed travelers post guides and tutorials every day on the Good Sam website that explains how to do just about anything- from raising an RV bed to dealing with a faulty alternator on the side of the road. While there are hundreds of articles written by industry professionals, there are at least twenty times that submitted from members who simply want to help out their fellow RV enthusiast. Then there's the local Good Sam chapters that get together in a social atmosphere and share stories of their RV adventures. Many families never realized what they were missing until they began to travel with a group of local residents who shared the exact same goals and ambitions as them; some Good Sam members would simply not travel any other way. All of these benefits and more are included in the standard Good Sam membership at $19.95 per year; it would be difficult for anyone to name a smarter purchase for any RV fan out there.
