How the coupon book works?


We'd like to buy coupon book for tours. But don't know how many books we need to get "2 for 1" deal. We are 2 adults, 2 kids at 15 and 9 while travelling. Shall we buy 2 books, or just 1 book. Mostly we use book for tours of Kenai Fjords Cruise, Kayaking; tickets to some museum, center.

How does the book work? Shall we just check online and call their CS for details?

Our trip will be within 28 days, is it still workable? Thanks all

The coupons vary...in the Northern lights book anyway. Many are 2 for 1's, a few can be used 2 for 4. Many of the coupons for smaller adventures (rafting, flightseeing) specify that only 1 is accepted per day, or "must have 2 full paying customers on the trip", or a couple that even say cannot book more than 24 hrs in advance 9that ones handy for planning, eh?)

The larger ones , KF tour, AK railroad, etc...you'd need 2 books, but could use coupons for all 4 people. And with the prices of things, if you can use 2 coupons per book you can more than make your 60 dollars back, usually MUCH more than.

Be aware that you have to book ahead, I think at least 2 weeks to use the Kenai Fjords coupon. I would call them and ask if they still have coupon 'slots' available for the date and time you want to go before you buy a book. You can see the restrictions on the coupon book web site. Check to make sure the ones you want will work for you. They don't need a coupon number, so you can book your tour and tell them you have the coupon book and then go buy one once you know you are good to go (I'm speaking about the Northern Lights coupon book - Tour Saver is different) .

I'm guessing the coupon slots are full so close to your visit, but as said, call and ask. We bought ours at Thanksgiving time the fall before our June cruise, booked as soon as they were open for the year in March and still were not able to use some we wanted to
