Luring Foreign Money BALLOUt SLEDGE fcraltors P.O. lex 28 PWt»H/7 KAOMXM »H/72e-2531 By John Brannon Albright (C) 1975 JV. Y. Time* Service NEW YORK - This may well be the best time ever to save money on travel within the United States -- provided you're not an American. Programs designed to attract foreign visitors to the Bicentennial are proliferating, and as a result of promotional fares, special hotel rates and automobile rental discounts the traveler from abroad enjoys transportation and accommodation bargains that are making Americans' green with envy in these red, white and blue times. One of the latest developments is the introduction for foreigners of. a flat fare for unlimited air travel in the United States: The plan, called the Bicentennial Visit U.S.A. fare, was initiated last month by American Airlines. Similar .plans were being readied last week by other domestic airlines. Here's how American's plan works: For a flat fare of $330 for adults and $230 for children aged 2. to 11, the foreign visitor can fly anywhere on American's system and to two destinations not served by American: Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. The unlimited-mileage ticket is good for 90 days from first use. No minimum time limit is imposed on the length of stays within the 90-day period, but only seven stop-overs are permitted. The fare; is scheduled to ex- pire.on Nov; 30,1976. To be eligible for the special fare, the traveler must live at least 100 miles beyond the border of the United States. The ticket can be purchased in the United States, provided; arrangements are made within the -first seven days of the visitor's arrival. A passport must be presented as evidence of eligibility for the fare. If the foreigners prefers to see the United States from ground level, he will find bargains in bus and Return Engagement The honeymoon resorts in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania are currently, sponsoring a "return engagement'Vcontest in which five couples who spent their honeymoon in the Pocpnos will be awarded an all-expenses-paid second honeymoon. ; . . : : .,' All the contestants have to do is provide the Pocono Mountains Vacation Bureau -with proof that they spent their first honeymoon in the area. To date, some 2,000 entries have been received and the ."proof " submitted by the contestants has ranged from honeymoon photographs and hotel bills to coat-hangers bearing the name of the hotel where the couple stayed.
