Hacks On How To Save This Summer As the experts in travel savings, Priceline makes saving on travel easier than ever by offering up to 60% off on hotels, flights, rental cars, and cruises. To help customers save even more money, follow these tips when planning and booking your next vacation:
Take Advantage of City Deals. As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, cities are experiencing a resurgence and are great destinations for summer travel. Hotel prices in cities continue to remain lower than 2019 levels. New York and Chicago are particularly affordable destinations this summer with average daily hotel rates of $181 and $187 and average round-trip flight tickets for $282 and $274.2
Rent a Car From Off-Airport Locations. In Priceline's current list of the top 30 most popular destinations, more than 70 percent of searches show that more wallet-friendly rates are available at off-airport locations than at airport-based locations for the same car type. On average, travelers who pick up their car at an off-airport location save more than 15 percent.
Head to Affordable Destinations For A Last Minute Fourth Of July Getaway. With the newfound lifestyle of working remotely, Americans have the freedom to take advantage of making last minute vacation plans. Grand Junction, CO is one of the most affordable destinations for those looking to plan an impromptu trip for the long holiday weekend with average daily hotel rates of $80 to explore Colorado's wine country.
Bundle travel for added savings. Regardless of what type of product you plan to book for upcoming summer travel plans, travelers should consider booking "bundles" by packaging hotels, flights, and car rentals to access deeper discounts and maximize savings. Those who bundle save an average of $240 when booking a hotel and flight together.
