Some say it’s the journey, not the destination. Groupon may be the right choice to help you with both. 

You need a getaway. But is there a way to get where you want to go without the scheduling conundrums and pricing packages that can make traveling more a hassle than heavenly? Groupon, the website known for coupons on services and goods, also provides budget travel packages called Groupon Getaways that offer three types of travel experiences:  air-inclusive international packages, cruises, and domestic hotels. 

Some of the benefits of Groupon Getaways include:

Convenience 

All you need to do is show up on time and in the right place:  Inclusive getaways are a one-stop shop. Everything trip-related can be bundled in one package — plane tickets, transfers, tours, and hotel reservations. 

A Plethora Of Places 

This will fan the flames of your desire to travel:  You’ll find a vacation package for every continent except the chilly tundra of Antarctica. Whether you’re looking to book a romantic getaway, a quick break, or a family-friendly vacation, Groupon has travel categories galore. 

Price 

Saying Groupon Getaways are super cheap isn’t an exaggeration. One lump sum packs together airfare, transportation, hotel, tours, and several meals — all at a price that’s readily affordable.  

As with all travel arrangements, Groupon Getaways have their limitations and restrictions. Be aware that you might only be able to depart for your excursion from certain airports, and you won’t get to choose your airline or flight time. Another eye-opener:  Expect early morning and overnight flights as well as long layovers. 

Pay particular attention to departure dates, as there likely won’t be much flexibility in when you head for the friendly skies. But you can select the available dates before checkout, which eliminates any last-minute surprises.  

Finally, if you’re worried that you might need to cancel your trip at the last minute, you might want to pass on booking through Groupon. Many portions of Groupon Getaways are nonrefundable, particularly the airfare, so be sure to read the fine print on your specific travel excursion before you buy and book.
