Reno, Nevada – Military travel website, www.GuidetoMilitaryTravel.com celebrated its official website launch on Thursday, October 1, 2009. The first website of its kind, GuidetoMilitaryTravel.com is the largest collection of military travel discounts found anywhere (online or in print). Currently there are over 800 discounts listed, many of which are exclusive to GuidetoMIlitaryTravel.com, with more coming every day. With the cooperation of the travel industry, GuidetoMilitaryTravel.com offers its readers the most extensive collection of travel discounts for members of the armed forces. Discounts can be found for almost every state in the United States and many foreign countries. In addition to the large collection of travel discounts, the site also includes recommendations on where to travel, where to stay and what not to leave home without. There is no charge to access the site.
Erica I. PeÃ±a-Vest, Travel Editor and Owner of GuidetoMilitaryTravel.com, stated: “I've been in the travel industry for many years and as a military wife, I have watched members of our military take time for family before leaving for and after returning from long deployments overseas. Never before in our history have their been so many travel discounts as a grateful nation says thank you to our troops, but it is often difficult for businesses to inform members of the military and their families of the discounts offered. I realized there was a need for a complete list of military travel discounts and that I was in the unique position to get that information out to military families. As a result, the idea for www.guidetomilitarytravel.com was born.”
