Want a travel coupon? Here are 5 top sites for a vacation deal
As with so many aspects of our lives, bargain hunting has gone virtual. Knowing where on the web to find the most useful coupon codes not only nets travellers big savings, but saves time, too.
Clipping coupons to save on travel—the concept is not a new one. These types of discounts have been around for a long time, though nowadays you no longer need a pair of scissors to play. As with so many aspects of our lives, bargain hunting has gone virtual. Knowing where on the web to find the most useful coupon codes not only nets travellers big savings, but saves time, too.
Here are some of the spots I mouse over to:
RetailMeNot.com: The big one! At any one time, it will be offering dozens of coupons for discounts at the online travel agencies (Orbitz, Expedia, Travelocity, Hotels.com, etc.), rental-car companies, hotel chains, airlines, amusement parks, even such travel gear and clothing outlets as REI, Sierra Trading Post and eBags. While sometimes the savings are negligible (is it even worth it to click through for a 5 per cent savings on a full-price hotel room?), in many cases the codes lead to significant savings and even freebies (as in an offer I just found from an American bus company giving away free rides to and from Philadelphia). I particularly appreciate RetailMeNot’s honesty: Along with “Active Coupons,” it lists “Unreliable Coupon” codes, along with the percentage of times these promotions actually work.
