Every Tuesday, we’ll feature the best travel bargain we’ve seen all week right here, on our blog. Be the first to find out which deals make the cut by subscribing to our blog (top right) or signing up for our weekly deals newsletter.
The Deal: Travelocity’s Easter sale features an array of impressive discounts on hotel stays and vacation packages for travel April through August. Choose from a selection of cut-rate hotel and package options in popular vacation destinations across the globe, including Mexico, the Caribbean, New York, California, Latin America, Hawaii and Florida. Receive as much as 65 percent off the price of your stay, plus get extra savings like free-nights and resort credits, depending on which property you choose.
One of the things we love about this deal is its sheer variety. We found discounted rates for all-inclusive Caribbean resorts, rustic national park hotels, big-city high-rise properties, and even Disney World and Disneyland accommodations featured in this sale. Nightly rates start at $42 (for a Travelodge hotel in Riviera Beach, Florida). For each property, travelers have the option of saving on hotel-only stays, or adding airfare and getting discounted prices for a vacation package. It’s great to have options!
The Catch: Depending on which hotel you’re looking at, various minimum-night stay requirements might apply. Many of the properties we looked at had a three-night minimum-stay requirement for the discount, but be sure to check when booking.
The Competition: Hotels.com is running a similar Easter sale, with discounts of up to 40 percent at select properties around the world. But the Hotels.com sale doesn’t feature marked down vacation packages, and travel dates are limited to select days in April.
Editor’s Note: IndependentTraveler.com is a member of the TripAdvisor Media Group, an operating company of Expedia, Inc., which also owns Hotels.com.
