I approach all travel promotions with a healthy dose of skepticism, viewing most “added extras” as fluff. But this new Last-minute Summer Savings sale from Orbitz looks like the real deal. Not only does the deal it offer up to 50 percent off thousands of hotels around the world, but you will also receive a $200 coupon for future travel if you book by September 8.
The allure of $200 cold, hard coupon cash is undeniable, but where’s the catch? You must first book and take a vacation before September 30 to receive the discount, which is only good on a five-night air-and-hotel packages at participating properties. You must book your future trip by October 31, and travel between December 1 and March 31. Travel to Las Vegas is not permitted. There’s a limit to one discount per hotel room and one promotion code per booking.
So, yeah, there are a few drawbacks to the deal, including limited travel time and length of travel. However, if you’re planning a five-night trip and you need to go somewhere before September 30, you may benefit from this deal, especially if you get huge savings on a hotel room for the first trip.
