Today may be the best Daily Getaway value of the bunch as far as I’m concerned.
If you’re new to Daily Getaways, think of this as “Vacations For Real People” (or vacations for normal people). It’s no secret that I love showing my family the world. I took my wife and daughter to Paris a few years ago for Valentine’s Day on a long weekend, but we’re just as likely to pile into the car and drive up to HersheyPark. We prefer to travel to places like Italy and Greece to explore the culture, but those trips aren’t accessible to everyone.
Even though I preach the strategy of earning miles to just about everyone I meet (sorry, for those of you tired of hearing me babble on), most folks aren’t trying to fly First Class in an apartment to the Middle East. Or pop over to Sydney for a long weekend. We decided to head down to the Fort Myers area in Florida this year for spring break and were surprised to find at least a dozen of our friends from Virginia had chosen the same destination as us.
Some drove, some flew, none of them stayed at a St. Regis, Ritz or Four Seasons. For that group, which are the normal folks, Daily Getaways can represent a significant value. Not all deals will, but there are still plenty of savings to be had. Hoping to get some more time to lump these into weekly posts, but in the interim, here’s the scoop on the $350 discount Daily Getaways is offering today:
The big key to note here is that you have to use $1,000 voucher on one reservation for one room.
As long as that doesn’t bother you, this really is a phenomenal deal. $1,000 isn’t a lot for a family of 4 to spend on a week-long vacation, so this offer should fit most people’s budgets.
This was one of my favorite offers in last year’s Daily Getaway, and still stands as that this year. As far as the +gold status from Expedia, here’s what I wrote last year (double-checking, it doesn’t seem the terms have changed):
Bonus points, room upgrades (at a list of 1400 VIP access hotels) and a dedicated concierge seem to be the Gold benefits, while Blue members get a host of other things, like 2 points per dollar on hotel spend and 1 point per $5 of spend on flights.
I’m not a fan of booking through OTAs, but lots of people find it convenient. I can’t say I’d put a whole lot of value on the Gold status, but there’s still a 35% discount on a future hotel reservation. There’s only 50 of these available, so it’ll be a full-out scrum to score one of these.
You’ll need to be ready early for this one, since 50 packages will go in the blink of an eye. But it’s a great value.
