PARSIPPANY, N.J., Jan. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of National Plan for Vacation Day, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts—the world's largest hotel franchising company with approximately 9,000 hotels across 90 countries—today announced a new three-day, mobile app flash sale, offering travelers 25 percent off the Best Available Rate on upcoming stays of two nights or more at thousands of hotels across the U.S.
The sale comes on the heels of a recent survey of Americans by the U.S. Travel Association where 97% of respondents said that having a trip planned makes them happier while 84% said they're excited to plan a vacation in the next six months. National Plan for Vacation Day takes place on the last Tuesday in January and encourages Americans to plan their vacation days for the year.
"Travelers want to get away and our hotels are ready to welcome them," said Lisa Checchio, chief marketing officer, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. "Whether it's getting that first trip on the books or planning an entire year's worth of vacation, whatever travelers are excited to check out this year, they can book and stay with confidence. And chances are, there's a hotel by Wyndham just 10 minutes away."
"National Plan for Vacation Day is the perfect opportunity for Americans to renew their love of travel and to look ahead to better days," said U.S. Travel President and CEO Roger Dow.
Wyndham launched its new mobile app last fall after carefully listening to the needs of guests. Designed to meet rising expectations, the app provides access to streamlined booking and lower contact, in-stay features like mobile check-in and checkout—a feature Wyndham was the first to rollout at scale across more than 6,000 economy and midscale hotels. Other app features include personalized experiences, Wyndham Rewards® account management, gamification and unique offerings like Lightning Book®, which makes it easy to book the nearest Wyndham hotel for the night in as a few as three taps.
Added Checchio, "Our new mobile app delivers the features everyday travelers want and at a scale no other hotel company can offer."
To take advantage of Wyndham's latest flash sale, deal-seekers must first download the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts' mobile app, available in the Apple App and Google Play stores.
