                                                E-Check — the Quickest & Easiest Way to Pay
                                                Vantage now accepts E-Checks, the electronic version of your paper check. They automatically debit your checking account without the bother of mailing a check. It's also the best way to get the most value on your SmartPaySM Discount Plan.

                                                *Special third-guest rates are available in suites. Third-occupancy rates are not combinable with any other offers, including airfare offers. Third person accommodations include either sofa bed with deluxe mattress topper or rollaway bed.  Please call for details.  The third passenger who reserves a triple accommodation as part of a Groups reservation do not earn accumulating traveler rewards, nor can their Group leaders earn rewards for the third traveler in the suite.
