New Daily Deals Offering Shows Date Availability at Time of Booking
Aug 29, 2011
SOUTHLAKE, Texas (Aug. 29, 2011) – Travelocity today announced Dashing Deals, providing a deal of the day on great hotels worldwide. Travelocity developed Dashing Deals in close collaboration with the world’s leading hotels, resulting in deals that both the hotels and travelers can be excited about. Travelers are able to book the daily deals directly, instead of receiving a coupon or voucher for future travel which can be tedious for hotels to manage and for travelers to redeem. By allowing travelers to book at the time of purchase, travelers can make sure they select the dates they want.
For travelers on a tight budget, or those who just love a good deal, Dashing Deals adds instant “get-them-before-they’re-gone” deals to Travelocity’s already in-demand hotel deals. Providing a new sale every day, Dashing Deals offers three-to-five star hotels at 50 percent or more off standard rates, and will often feature perks like breakfast, show tickets or valuable spa credits.
Travelers can sign up for the Dashing Deals alert emails starting today or visit Travelocity’s website and mobile site to view and book the deal of the day. The daily deals are revealed at 10:00 a.m. ET / 9:00 a.m. CT and are available until midnight or until the deal is sold out.
In celebration of the launch, Travelocity is offering travelers who book a Dashing Deal between August 29 and September 11, 2011 $50 towards a future hotel or vacation package booking.
“Travelocity’s Dashing Deals program provides customers with deep discounts at great hotels,” said Carl Sparks, President and CEO, Travelocity Global. “We have upped the ante in the travel flash-deals world. By displaying the actual dates and room availability at the time of purchase, we provide travelers an easy way to find great travel deals for the dates they want and hotels are involved in a sale program that is easy for them to manage.”
Travelocity guarantees the lowest prices through a complete price protection plan, elimination of booking fees and search tools. Even after the trip is booked, Travelocity will continue to be at the traveler’s side to ensure the trip meets expectations.
