Online Travel Services / Specials
Don't forget to check the internet for specials. Some of us who travel a lot for our jobs recommend looking for a hotel through Priceline.com, which offers decent discounts on hotel chains. You can find even bigger savings by clicking “Search Express Deals” on their website. We often use TripAdvisor.com to check ratings and reviews.

Free Lodgings
We're also trying to arrange free overnight lodgings - a church basement or someone’s sofa or floor space - for conference attendees who can’t afford a hotel or room or hostel. (No details yet. Please let us know if you need this option.)

Be a Host!
If you’re in Richmond and would like to host overnight guests, please contact Kat McNeal with the UNAC Local Organizing Committee at 703-859-0393.
