The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) is proud to partner with Travelodge Hotels’ ZOOcation!

The AZA is dedicated to the advancement of zoos and aquariums in the areas of conservation, education, science, and recreation. AZA is a leader in global wildlife conservation and your link to helping animals in their native habitats. Look for the AZA logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium as your assurance that you are at a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for the animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things.

And, by staying at a Travelodge hotel this summer, you can obtain a discount good for a free child admission (with paid adult admission) at a participating AZA member zoo.


What is a ZOOcation? Well, it is a vacation where you visit the ZOO! You can enter to win one this summer from Travelodge where you’ll get a V.I.P. zoo tour, airfare, and hotel accommodations. Better yet, stay two nights between June 1st and September 30th at a Travelodge in the US and you will get a pass for a free kid’s zoo ticket with the purchase of an adult ticket. Plus a stay at Travelodge helps keep zoos going strong by supporting bear conservation programs. See you this summer-there’s no vacation like a ZOOcation!
