Doing some homework well before you plan to take a pass helps to make the money you do have for pass stretch. Take the time now to investigate vacations you might not have thought of before.

Step 3 Online travel outlets might offer a superior pass deal but if you have a particular resort in mind it is a good intent to check out their official website for specials. Get all details about what they have to offer, the price and any restrictions on travel in writing.
