VIP Club San Miguel: "The Smart Fit"


Tuesday, November 23, 2010


Your Club wants to remind the membership about earning vouchers for free shuttle trips to or from Leon's airport. With the holidays coming up many of you have relatives or friends coming to town some of you might need to arrange transportation for them from Mexico City or Leon's airports.

If any member books for those visiting they get the credit. Five trips earns a voucher and free trip to or from Leon. The rules are clearly stated here on the VIP Club webpage Other VIP Discounts. This perk in your membership is generously provided by Viajes Travel.

Credit for vouchers are not provided until your travel arrangements have been completed. Many of our members have already taken advantage of this deal and have earned their voucher and have had free trips to or from Leon.
