The travel world in now embracing private flash-sale sites just like the fashion world did. These exclusive travel sites are offering their users lower prices than other discount travel sites.
Peter Greenberg, Travel Editor at CBS News has stated that these sites come with a limitation too but it often gets overlooked by the people when they get access to luxury hotels at very good bargains. It works out for the hotels who can sell their packages and excess rooms to the travel sites when the packages are available.
There are many such travel sites such as Ideeli, Totsy, Jetsetter, Groupon Getaways and Living Social Escapes. Ideeli offers almost 20 deals a week with about 75% discount. There is no sign up fee and the sales are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Totsy is a travel site aimed at parents with all their packages being tired-parent centric. Jetsetter also offers three options: flash sales, 24/7 sale, and personal travel planning.
