DALLASThe Exchange Service’s Exchange Online Mall has partnered with the U.S. Army Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation to help troops take a break without going broke.
 
Now, any authorized exchange shopper can log on to the Exchange Online Mall and book a vacation, including 7-night Alaskan Cruises from $399, Cozumel from $28 per night and an 11-day European Dream vacation, through FMWRC’s Government Vacation Rewards program.
 
Beyond convenience, the partnership makes it possible for military shoppers to book vacations using the Exchange Service’s proprietary Military Star® card or Military Star® Rewards MasterCard®.
 
“The competitive interest rate available through the Military Star® card, combined with the buying power that only Government Vacation Rewards can offer, means travel is more affordable than ever before,” said the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s Chief Marketing Officer Mat Dromey. “Packed with vacation values, the adventure begins when troops and their Families log on through the Exchange Online Mall.”
 
Government Vacation Rewards offers access to special military pricing on thousands of cruises, tours, vacation packages, resorts, hotels, air travel and cars. Currently, military shoppers who log on to the site through the Exchange Online Mall can use a Military Star® card to book any package while à la carte offerings, such as hotel, airline and car rental services, can be made using a major credit card.  
 
“This partnership is just the latest example of our strategic goal to be the premier collaborative partner with federal and commercial entities,” said Dromey. “Doing so allows us, and our partners, to provide world-class support to authorized exchange shoppers, wherever America’s military is called to serve.”
