Travel + a good deal = my idea of heaven. So I was excited to get an invitation to a new travel site called SniqueAway. SniqueAway is an invitation only, sale travel experience. Each week you receive an email(s) with various featured destinations and resorts (most are exotic and luxurious) with a limited time sale on hotel rates.
I have yet to book a vacation through SniqueAway, but I do love the offerings that are featured on this site. All of the properties are four or five star resorts that come highly recommended from reviewers on Trip Advisor (yes, SniqueAway is a Trip Advisor Member company). The hotels/resorts are not only beautiful, but when you're making a spontaneous decision on whether to book one, you are privy to gorgeous, colorful photos of each property, a list of all amenities and policies, a map detailing the location, and a descriptive recommendation on why this hotel is worth the price and what type of traveler would enjoy it.
The timed sale (usually 24 hours +) gives a bit of excitement to the hotel shopping experience and by limiting the amount of deals per day and week, I don't feel overwhelmed with choices. I either see something that interests me or I don't.
The other perk: By inviting your friends to join SniqueAway you get a $25 credit every time they book through the website. I've invited all my travel friends and do hope they make a reservation soon (nudge, nudge)! Here's my invite link if you want to check it out: http://www.sniqueaway.com/invite/BethanyK
Savings on hotels seem to range from 30- 50% off – quite a savings! It appears you'll still be paying a fairly high price for most of these resorts, however 50% off a 5 - star resort is certainly of value and perfect for a honeymoon or special occasion trip.
Hotels are located in global hot spots like Portugal and the Caymans, to US cities like Savannah, GA. The variety allows for close excursions that are perfect for weekend trips or week long adventures.
So what are you waiting for? It's time to get away!
