I could have sworn I read that tour members get a % off in the Shop........but now it seems I imagined it? I want to buy some backpacks for our tour.....I don't buy anything at full price though, lol.
You get free shipping with anything else you order with the tour kit. That's all.
There was an item on sale the day I ordered my last tour kit, so there's that.
I have taken about a dozen Rick Steves tours. I have never received a discount to the Shop. However, as mentioned in the post above, you get free shipping if you buy additional items along with your tour kit that comes with the tour you are signed up for.
When is your tour? There are sales ever once in awhile.*
