Discover America Daily Getaways is making another appearance! The program is brought to you and me by US Travel Association and American Express. It began in May, 2010 as a way to stimulate summer travel for leisure and business travelers.
Daily Getaways offers savings of more than 50% on top travel brands such as Marriott Hotels, Alamo Car Rental and SeaWorld. There are great deals for deals on hotel room nights, car rentals, vacation packages, as well as theme park admission and city attraction passes, plus it is just in time for Memorial Day Weekend and busy summer travel season.
Discover America Daily Getaways
Travel deals program that runs for 5 weeks to save over 20% on hotel room nights, car rentals, vacation packages, theme park admission and city attraction passes. And it’s just in time for Memorial Day Weekend and peak summer travel.
Getaway offers are sold at a fixed price in limited quantities and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. This means the offers sell out quickly. While you can use any credit card to make a purchase, you will receive 10% discount if paid using an American Express brand card.
Deals are purchased on the site but booking can be done at a later date. Getaway offers go on sale at 1:00pm ET each weekday from April 9, 2012 to May 11, 2012.
