Last week, my mom travelled over six hours with her brother and sister to attend their aunt’s funeral.
When she called the hotel to make a reservation, she happened to ask the clerk if the hotel was close to the funeral home. The clerk then kindly told my mom that if she was staying at the hotel to attend a funeral, she was eligible for their bereavement rate.
Originally, the hotel room was going to cost $90. After the bereavement rate, it was only $60. I knew that airlines offered bereavement rates, but I did not know that hotels did too. It is something to keep in mind if you have to travel out of town for a funeral.
