Daily Getaways travel deals are coming back in April. For those that aren’t familiar, the US Travel Association has been running this promotion the last few years to encourage people to travel in the US. The deals vary in location, price and value. They’re generally separated into a few different categories:
- Discounted offers to buy points or miles. Hyatt had one of the best deals last year in this category.
- Discounted gift cards. Marriott has traditionally done a 20% off deal that lasts only a few minutes.
- Packages, like these Las Vegas deals.
The only Daily Getaway I’ve purchased are Busch Gardens and Sea World tickets. They were at a significant discount to retail pricing. The tickets showed up in the mail about a week after I purchased them both times, and we had zero problems using them at the parks (and saving a few hundred dollars in the process).
There aren’t as many great deals during Daily Getaways as their used to be. But, many of the deals are family focused and can help larger groups of travelers take a trip affordably. If you don’t travel for business, amassing enough points to redeem for a vacation that’s free/cheap for a family of 4 is tough. That’s why I still think Daily Getaways is an essential tool for families who love to travel.
I’ll be keeping an eye on all the offers this year again and reporting back to you.
What are you hoping for out of Daily Getaways this year?
