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: Hotels.com is offering discounts of as much as 60 percent on select properties around the world. But this deal won’t be available for long. The offer is on the table for 48 hours only and, given that the countdown clock started this morning (we’re being literal here — there’s an actual countdown clock on the Hotels.com home page), your 48-hour window has already shrunk a bit.
Now that you feel sufficiently rushed, let’s take a closer look at how much you can save. We spotted some big markdowns in this 48-hour sale, including half-off prices at Sole on the Ocean, a beachfront Miami property, and 60 percent off accommodations at two Parisian hotels, Hotel Magenta Paris and Hotel Cervantes Paris.
The Catch: Watch out for minimum stay requirements at some of the hotels, like that beachside Miami spot we mentioned a few sentences ago (you must stay four or more nights to get the 50 percent discount).
The Competition: We found a few offers lurking in our hotel deals that come close to matching the discounts offered in the Hotels.com 48-hour sale. Starwood Hotels is offering half-off second-night stays at select hotels in the U.S. and abroad, and Wyndham is serving up a similar deal, with 50 percent off second-night stays at select properties across the globe.
