We all love to travel. We all love to find deals. So Groupon, a daily discount site covering everything from beauty to technology-based improvements or life hacks, has decided to really spruce up its offerings by adding destinations to the mix as well, really widening the scope of travel products offered! While there have been other similar competitors to tackle the travel industry, Getaways Hotel & Travel Deals by Groupon a free app for iOS and Android, allows for something new to cater to customer needs by bypassing Groupon’s general listings and focusing only on travel packages and hotels. There are 25,000 offers listed at the moment.
While the main Groupon app will still have a travel section, the standalone app for getaways will really become the new go-to hub for those normally drawn to sites like Kayak. A further 20% is offered at the moment if the app is downloaded and a coupon bought by November 14. Just make sure you use the APP20 promotion code. The Groupon Getaways Hotel & Travel Deals app will only work in the US and Canada for now, but we know that something this big will not stay centralized to North America for long and will take on an international fervor.
Furthermore, it’s rather exciting how users will be able to get discounts on events as well when booking travel-related deals from the mobile platform. Since the focus is on the travel getaway, creating a full experience will allow more individuals to find the events or themes which inspire them to buy off the app, effectively also earning 5% in Groupon Bucks that can be used on the trip!
