Wanted to know if anyone has used it. When going on the site, little info is offered.

just so everyone knows, anyone who pays a fee for a service that can be found right here on slickdeals, for free, are fools.

don't do it.

I have bought the dining certificates and have started getting emails about this, too. I haven't bitten. I am afraid that it would be one of those resort credits that have extremely limited availability (such as odd leap years) and/or hidden fees or savings no better than what you could find on your own. I'd be curious, too, to find out if it's legit.

Use this email to login demo@travelsavingspassport.com and password demo1234

This will give you a fake demo balance of $500, do a search for a hotel, you will see that it auto-calculates in green the savings you can use (you can't use your whole balance basically) and the price you pay is in blue. Some rates are decent, not spectacular. But this gives you an idea if its worth to purchase or not, I have not purchased, still doing searches to see.

Thanks for the info gtran26. While the rate you will "pay" is not great if the $500 only cost $50 would still doing well it looks like. I think they are counting on a lot of people not using these things.

Hi! What you purchase for $45 is the $500 worth of credit for TravelSavingsPassport.com. With that credit, you can search for hotels to destinations all over the world, and use your credit to get the lowest prices to those destinations.
As for hidden fees... there are none! You won't be going to the checkout and suddenly see a bunch of nickel and diming happening. All taxes and fees ARE INCLUDED in the price you see on the search page. Simple as that!

I don't know who u r, but your answer is total boloney. My take is: u r out $45 for nothing. The listings include a range of "discounts" from regular prices. The hotels I checked were "discounted" by $200s, $300s - absolutely NOT NECESSARILY by $500. In every case, the "discount" brought pricing more into line with many available OTA pricings - where u don't have to pre-pay $45. Hence was my question - and I'd love to be proven wrong!! List real example

I agree with SinglePapa -- who seems to have looked at the website before making his conclusion. I also think you can do as well on your own through the online booking sites. I have bought the restaurant certificates on restaurant.com for many years and have never had a problem, but I would be suspicious of this offer -- especially when the answer to your question is posted by someone who has never posted before and judging by their user name, is affiliated with the company.

When I did the "examples" of what I would be saving, the discounts were way more. Now that I bought the cert, the discounts are MUCH smaller. Very unhappy with this.

I got this Travel Savings Passport for going to a Timeshare presentation, and it is definitely not worth it. I am a traveler and book a lot of things on my own, so I have noticed when you do a search on this site the prices are inflated. Then you get $500 to use but you cannot use them the way the way you want to. The site picks how you use your savings, some hotel stays listing only $10/$20 savings. If it is mine to use why can't I use the $500 at once. This is not saving when the price was inflated to begin with. This savings passport is definitley not worth anything and I am glad that I got it for free. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Not free: you selected it to be your reward instead of $120 cash. So that's how much it cost you
