What’s better than traveling? Saving money while traveling.
The US Travel Association’s Daily Getaways promotion, now in its 10th year, kicked off on Monday with limited quantity deals on nationwide hotels, car rentals, and theme park tickets each weekday through June 7. The deals, which are posted ahead of time and made available at 1 p.m. on their scheduled day, are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
If it’s a luxury getaway in New Hampshire you’re after, set an alert for 1 p.m. on May 22, when 15 one-night stays at select Omni Hotels & Resorts, including the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, N.H., will be on sale for $235 — a 35% discount. Omni Hotels & Resorts is offering four deals that day, and three more of its New England properties are involved. Travelers can vie for 38 opportunities for a $335 two-night stay (a 40% savings) at select properties that include the Omni Parker House in Boston, as well as 41 opportunities for a $245 two-night stay (a 37% savings) at select properties that include the Omni Providence and Omni New Haven. The prices include the cost of a standard single or double occupancy room, which must be booked by Dec. 30 when the deals expire. Buyers are mailed a certificate with a promotion code to use when booking.
If you’d rather choose your own discounted hotel, on May 24, 60 people will have the chance to spend $665 for $1,000 of value toward a hotel booked on Orbitz. And if you’re looking to save money on more than just hotel rooms, check out the more than 1,500 Marriott eGiftCards going on sale May 30, which can also be redeemed in hotel spas, restaurants, and retail stores at participating locations across New England and beyond. Buyers will save 20 percent on $100, $250, and $500 cards.
If you need a car for your getaway, car rental companies such as Alamo and Avis, both of which have locations in New England, are offering deals. Alamo is selling 2,200 $25 certificates worth $50 on May 9, good toward the daily base rate of a car rental. Avis is offering 500 $30 one-day car rentals on May 16.
Deals outside of New England range from 50 percent off of a three-night stay at the Bellagio in Las Vegas along with dinner, spa treatments, and tickets to see a Cirque de Soleil performance (find that deal on May 23) to 40 percent off of a single-day ticket to any SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park (spot that on May 10) to 50 percent off of a two-night stay in a luxury suite at the Loews Regency in New York City (available on May 17).
