Hotel Discounts for Churches This is How to Get The Best Deals for Mission Trips & Conferences

For religious organizations, stewardship is key when it comes to managing the funds available for mission trips, ministry trips, fellowship trips, and conferences. Oftentimes, the monies that do become available are the result of diligent fundraising and sacrificial giving from many members of the congregation. Because every penny counts, getting the most for your money is also Groople’s first priority when helping identify and book the best possible lodging for your ladies’ conference, youth group, or urban-missions trip.


As a preferred partner to many churches nationwide, we have an insider’s list with the best hotel discounts in popular destinations such as Orlando, which is popular with youth groups wanting to mix a little fun with some biblical education through the Holy Land Experience. If your group is heading to Atlanta instead to engage in urban missions helping the homeless, then we can also help you book a great hotel for your church group that is both affordable and centrally located. Similarly, if you need our help finding an off-the-beaten-path destination to hold your church retreat without breaking the bank, then we are ready to point you to many outstanding hotels that provide an array of free amenities and activities that can take your church retreat to the next level.



If you are in the initial stages of planning a church trip, then let us help you with a few smart tips to make every dollar count:


Drive to Your Destination If You Have a Church Bus

Depending on the distance to your destination, air travel may not make sense. If your church is fortunate enough to have a bus in good mechanical shape, and you presently have an insurance policy that allows for long-distance trips, then go ahead and take advantage of it. With lower gas prices, you stand to save significant money if you have a large group. In addition to traveling using your own bus, consider traveling overnight to save on the costs associated with one-night lodging.


Ask a Partner Church to Host a Dinner for Your Group

If your church is part of a larger denomination, then why not explore saving on the more expensive meals by asking a church to host a dinner for your group, or allow your group to take advantage of their kitchen facilities? As for lunch, Groople can help arrange catered or brown-bag lunches prepared by your hotel of choice.


Take a Closer Look at Your Travel Dates

If you are not attending an event and your group has some flexibility, then ask your Groople hotel experts to help you identify the most economical dates for lodging for your city of choice. At Groople, we maintain calendars that show citywide events and other factors that might impact the cost of your stay, and we will help you find dates that make sense based on your hotel budget.


Let Us Help You Pick a Hotel with Extra Value Features

A great way for church groups to get more for their money is by allowing our booking agents to negotiate a number of perks designed to save you money. From free breakfast to free Internet, or free rooms for the group planner, we will leverage our relationship with great hotels to get you the best freebies and perks.


International Mission Trip Hotels That Make Sense

If you are reaching out to the nations you need to go beyond budget management. The safety and well-being of your group is essential and picking the right hotel requires insider local knowledge. Our international booking team will help you identify properties that put you in the middle of the action giving your group a place of respite after a long day of service.


Let Us Help You Secure Free Small-Meeting Space When Booking a Large Church Group

If you need a command station and you have a large group, oftentimes we are able to secure a reserved meeting room at little or no cost to your church group. Remember to ask us about this option.
