* indicates breakfast special, see hotel details for more information. None of the above rates include taxes, which you are responsible for. Florida Tax rates are approxiately 13.5%. Prices may vary slightly, but are unlikey to change.

Tax Exemption To take advantage of tax exemption in the state of Florida, AYF members who have 501(c)3 status through AYF can fill out a Florida Certificate of Exemption and file with the state of Florida. Without filing this form, 501(c)3 organizations CANNOT use their tax benefits in Florida and will be subject to state taxes, ie. hotel tax. The form can be found at myayf.com.
To file for tax exemption in Florida you must include:
1. The FL exemption form (posted on MyAYF.com)
2. A copy of your determination letter from the IRS and/or the letter we issued to you that states you are a 501(c)3 under the AYF umbrella
3. A copy of the group determination letter that is available on Myayf.com.
Please note that you will only be able to use the tax-exempt certificate if you are paying with either a company check whose name matches the tax exempt certificate or with a credit card that matches the tax exempt certificate.
The state of Florida takes 30-45 days to process and return the tax exempt certificate by mail - so you will want to process this ASAP to ensure that your leagues/teams will have it in time for Nationals.
The official partner for rental cars is Budget. If you chose Budget for your rental car needs, we encourage you to use the Fast Break option to expedite the process. The Fast Break form and information can be found at Budget.com.
When booking a rental through Budget, please reference our group BCD # U069037. You may book by calling 1 (800) 525-7537 x33462 or through the link above or by emaling ABGMeetings@avisbudget.com.
DO NOT TO PAY AT THE TOLL BOOTH – use the Toll Pass/EZPass lanes to avoid being double charged. Most vehicles in Florida are already equipped with the Toll Pass/ EZPass device. In the event there is not one, the PlatePay system will recognize the plate as a Budget rental vehicle and the charges will be applied that way.
