To get started, go to apha.com/apha-xtras/tripplanet/. Create your profile and search specific dates, times, airports, hotels and more for the best savings during the show. Any questions can be answered by the platform’s 24-hour helpline, making sure nothing slows your plans down.
Have frequent flyer numbers or reward program numbers? TripPlanet will automatically keep track of any frequent flyer points or reward memberships through your profile, saving you the time of entering your points every time you travel.
APHA Regional Club Manager Allyson Pennington says this partnership comes at a key time for everyone involved in APHA events and programs.
“We are excited to offer our show producers and judges this cost-saving opportunity,” she said. “Programs such as TripPlanet become a great tool to counter the current rise in travel costs due to the rising price of gasoline.”
