Love’s Travel Stops Partner With Good Sam

Good Sam Club members can gain some relief from gas and fuel prices by taking advantage of Good Sam’s new, exclusive gas and diesel discounts at Love’s Travel Stops. Recently, eighty-three nationwide Love’s Travel Stops began providing Good Sam members with a two-cent-per-gallon discount on gasoline purchases, and a one-cent-per-gallon discount on diesel fuel. “The timing of this discount program is perfect,” said Sue Bray, Good Sam Club executive director. “Despite high gas prices, RVers continue to drive in record numbers, enjoying the beauty and attractions in the United States. We know that our members love discounts. This marries the two positives and gives Good Sam members a special incentive to keep traveling.” Most RVers don’t feel the financial pressure to significantly cut back on their travel, because they aren’t out in their vehicles every day like car owners are. They  are taking discretionary pleasure trips with their entire family and saving in other ways. Even when fuel prices increase, the difference isn’t enough to cancel a trip. Research supports the substantial savings offered by RV travel. Comparative-cost vacation studies by PKF Consulting, an international consulting firm with expertise in travel and tourism, have consistently found that RV-camping vacations are the least expensive. A family of four can spend up to 70 percent less on RV trips versus travel using cars, planes, hotels and cruise ships. These savings more than make up for higher gas prices. When fuel prices increase, costs for all travel options rise proportionately, according to PKF, giving RV trips a continued edge on savings. Good Sam has issued new magnetic-strip cards, which enable members to take advantage of Love’s discounts with a simple swipe of their membership card.
A complete listing of Love’s Travel Stops locations can be accessed at www.goodsamclub.com or in the current issue of Highways magazine. At www.loves.com, Love lists current gas and diesel prices for each location; prices are updated on a daily basis. Love’s also provides Good Sam members with a 10 percent discount on all quick-serve restaurant purchases made inside any Love’s Travel Stop.
