Our blog often talks about how we focus on saving money on entertainment budgets while on the road. After all, we expect to have some down time whether on business travel or leisure travel! While Enterprise Holdings -- through their Alamo subsidiary -- has long been the official rental car partner of Disney, there are other major tourist attractions with tie-ins to rental car companies. For instance, potential visitors to LEGOLAND, SEA LIFE, or Madame Tussauds in the United States and Canada can get a 30% discount via Budget Car Rental on admissions purchased between now and late 2018, whether online in advance or at the attraction itself.

What about virtual reality roller coasters for adults?

The promotion is straightforward; promo code 189918 gives a 30% discount whether admission is purchased online or at the ticket booth. There is a considerable discrepancy between the Budget website (lists an end date of October 2018) and the LEGOLAND website (lists an end date of December 2018); with the potential for blackout dates, we suspect holiday-related travel in late December would make the promotion off-limits anyway. And while 30% is a pretty aggressive discount, some visitors might be eligible for even greater savings. For instance, active-duty military members are frequently eligible for free or aggressively discounted tickets through MWR and passes are frequently available at a discount for Costco members or through AAA affiliates in geographic regions with these parks.

Our Take

Planning a visit to one of these major tourist attractions? Check the discounts available through your existing affiliations and memberships. We rarely say AvisBudget Group does anything great outside of their Avis subsidiary -- after all, they still own Payless Car Rental -- but a 30% discount on admission to these facilities without any need to join an organization or jump through any hoops is indeed a decent deal. In fact, it appears to be among the best public offers available!
