Don't fall prey to bogus hotel booking services who call or email you offering cheaper hotel accommodations and claiming they are affiliated with ARA.  Be aware that any such calls are fraudulent, and are not affiliated in any way with ARA.  They may be scams to take your money or they are booking rooms for their own benefit, not ARA's.
