Travelocity Slashes Prices With Pioneering 48-Hour TotalTrip(SM) Sale

Travelers Can Save up to $400 When Booking Flights and Hotel Together With TotalTrip

Sep 16, 2003

Attention all travel bargain shoppers! Now is the time to book that quick fall weekend getaway or much-needed vacation -- and save even more money. Today and tomorrow only, Sept. 16-17, Travelocity's(R) 48-hour TotalTrip(SM) Sale offers travelers savings on all TotalTrip flight + hotel deals, up to $400 per booking. This innovative sale gives consumers incremental savings on all TotalTrip bookings on top of the bargains they receive every day when booking flights and hotels together. Thanks to Travelocity TotalTrip, travelers already receive access to special rates not available when booking these components separately.

With the TotalTrip Sale, Travelocity, for the first time in its history, initiates on its own a special sale of its travel products. This further defines how Travelocity serves consumers as a retailer as well as a travel agent.

"What's most exciting for us about the 48-hour TotalTrip Sale is that for the first time we are significantly discounting our inventory which means even better deals for consumers," said Jeff Glueck, Travelocity vice president of packaging. "This sale demonstrates that, once again, Travelocity has moved beyond the role of a traditional travel agent by adding a retailer dimension to how we serve customers. Each day we strive to be a leader in creating ways to provide our members with value, quality service and the tools to build their own trips."

During the two-day sale from 12:01 a.m. CDT Tuesday, Sept. 16 to 11:59 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, Sept. 17, travelers will save on more than 300 destinations worldwide, which include Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.

  Examples of these great savings* include the following.
