Groupon Vacations : What You Need to Know Before You Book

Groupon Vacations : What You Need to Know Before You Book

Some people ask if I would suggest a Groupon trip or vacation? I tell them, I most definitely do. But, there are things to look for before you purchase that dream vacation.

Here is what you should consider before you book a Groupon Vacation:

  • Make sure it's within your budget. No one wants to go broke traveling, its supposed to be a great experience. 
  • When the Groupon deal says 'All-Inclusive', make sure it means 'All-Inclusive'. The 'All-Inclusive' booking should have your dining, beverages, amenities, and activities included. 
  • Check with the travel vendor or agent of the Groupon vacation to see if you have to pay for your luggage. Some flights are chartered, and you may have to pay a low cost or don't have to pay at all. 
  • Know that the advertised price is usually for two occupants, so it may cost more for solo travelers. Also, the advertised amount may differ per origin city so; it may cost more to fly out of Dallas than it is to fly out of New York. 
  • If you want to bring a child, prices could be adjusted. Speak with the travel vendor or agent to make sure the vacation is kid-friendly.
  • Do your research on the resort or hotel that is advertised. Check out the hotel reviews.
  • Read the fine print and details. Small things like airport transfers aren't included.
  • Research the travel vendor or agent that posted the Groupon vacation deal. Travel vendors and agents have reviews too. 

If you're going to use Groupon for a vacation, make sure to use Ebates to get cash back from your booking. You could use the cash to on other activities or essentials you will need for your trip. You can click here, and you will automatically get $10 for just signing up.
