If you have still energy left after the Memorial Day shopping, there are a few good travel deals available right now. As always, be quick, because these kind of deals usually don’t last.
Flights: Europe in summer is an expensive proposition and economy flights from the US can easily be more than $2,000. So, US Airways round-trip tickets from Philadelphia to Frankfurt/Main, Germany for only $788 including taxes are a great deal. Frankfurt is not only one of the biggest airports on the continent with inexpensive connections to Europe, there also is a train station for high-speed trains connected to the airport terminal, so you can quickly go to anywhere in Germany and Western Europe! You can find more information at The Flight Deal.
Hotels: If you don’t have enough points for your next vacation, but would like to book an upscale hotel at a discount, you can check out the Hyatt gift cards on sale: You can buy a $200 gift card for $175 or 12,5% off on ebay! They are valid for stays in the US, Canada and the Caribbean – find them here!
If you are a points traveler, than the quarterly PointBreaks promotion from the Intercontinental Rewards Club should be high on your list: You can book a selection of IHG hotels around the world from May 26 – July 31, 2015 for only 5,000 points (or approximately $35)! That’s a great value and I have benefited from this promotion a few times. You do have to be quick – the best hotels, like the InterContinental Nha Trang, Vietnam, will be sold out very quickly! You can see the full list on the IHG Blog!
