    Hi,

    I was offered a $400 travel reimbursement from a non-vegas CET Property. Question is, has anyone used this before? Any details?

    I will be renting a car to drive in (maybe $100) and then flying back with my wife ($300 - $400 total).

    Does anyone know the restrictions or have any experience with how it works? Is it easy? Impossible to get? Will they restrict it to just my ticket and not my wife's, even if I purchase both on the same itinerary.

    Also, because it's not a junket flight, I assume I do not have to book the flight through CET right?

    Thanks,
    BnV

    I am assuming this was an offer from a host. You probably want to ask them directly as I've seen them do cash, freeplay or food credits in different time frames. if you drive, they will mapquest the mileage and base the reimbursement off that.

    Thanks,
    I will actually be renting a car - but I am more interested in reimbursing the airfare back. For 2 tickets, one-way each, it will be about $400 - I just am hoping they do not say they will not reimburse me to go home...lol.

    I'm confused. The thread says CET comp. Your OP says you were offered a travel reimbursement at a non-CET property.

    I've been given "airfare" from my host at CET. It's just another name for loss reimbursement. Even if I drove, it would still be referred to as airfare. It's cash that can be applied to outstanding markers. If there are no outstanding markers, I would receive cash.

    Non-vegas Cet prop...harrahs rincon to be specific...wanted to specify in case there were non Vegas examples to draw on. Sometimes Vegas props with CET have different rules for comps and such.
    Thanks, hope that clears it up.

    Thanks for adding the EXACT hotel/casino. It often makes a difference.

    We have done the airfare/transporation thing a few times at Tunica and New Orleans. Small stuff at Tunica, so that does not help. At New Orleans, they just needed to see the airline receipt and they gave us a slip to take the cashier to get money.

    If the airfare is the bigger chunk, take that to them and it "should"work.

    Thanks...do you think they will care that it is for 2 people (myself and wife) and only one-way ticket costs??
    Will they only cover my airfare or my wife also? I can easily explain that my wife won't let me travel out there alone...:evillaugh

    Thanks

    I did this once several years ago to Tunica and it was for $1000 airfare reimbursement. I just gave a copy of the receipt to my host and she took it to the cashier and gave me cash back. It was for both me and my DH but it was round trip.

    The best thing to do is call a host on duty at the property or your home property host and ask.

    If this is Harrahs RIncon in SoCal, I believe the travel reimbursement is specifically to offset the distance between the casino and the airport. I haven't used it yet.

    I just looked at it and is specifies "Travel Reimbursement", but nothing beyond that.

    There Is a description of the reimbursement on SevenStarsInsider

    "Because of its location, Harrah's offers up to $200 toward a rental car in lieu of limo pick-up at the airport. Since San Diego is nearly 50 miles and – depending on traffic – at least an hour away (via some pretty narrow one lane roads after you get off the the Interstate and some decent surface roads) – it's a good option to consider, especially if you want to spend a day or two away from the casino. Los Angeles is at least a two-hour drive, depending on your destination."

    Don't know if that will help or not.

    Thanks to all,
    I am in contact with my Host at Rincon, he made it sound like it was just going to be given to me. No specifics about presenting receipts...so I asked, and followed up with the questions posted here. If I get a response, I will post my findings here to help others!

    I assume you have a travel reimbursement coupon mailed to you from Rincon. I have had them sent to me as well. I just walk to Total Rewards or the Cashier and get the cash. They really don't care to see any receipts or proof of payment. They only wanted to verify who I was and handled off the cash. If you want a receipt you could "buy" a Southwest Airlines fully refundable ticket fare, print out the e-ticket receipt, then do a cancellation for a full refund. But I have used this travel reimbursement around six times and was never asked for a travel receipt.
