Today’s Daily Getaway Presents Great Savings But Risky Value

Daily Getaway
Written by Charlie

Today’s Daily Getaway is for a $1,000 code for hotels at Orbitz and you only need to pay $650. But, is it as good of a value as the price makes it look like?

Daily Getaway – Orbitz $1,000 Promo Code for Hotels

Today’s Daily Getaway is for a $1,000 Orbitz promo code (55 promo codes are available). It will go on sale at 1PM ET today (May 5). The cost is $650 so a simple 35% discount which is fantastic. However, it is not quite all that simple so take a minute to consider what is involved.

The Fine Print Clarifies the Real Value

The terms say it is good at “select hotels” but does not say which hotels. I would imagine that it may be like other promo codes that we have had in the past where it may not apply to chain hotels. But, it could also mean that they are just covering themselves with that exclusion in case a particular property does not accept Orbitz promo codes. Without details about that, we do not know, though!

The code only applies to prepaid bookings and cannot include any package (no flight/car package). This is understandable but is worth noting.

The code only applies to a single room and “There is no residual value and no credit will be issued if the purchase amount is less than the coupon code discount. The coupon code may not be re-used, even in the event that you change or cancel the booking.” This makes it even more restrictive as it has to be a single reservation. I know there are people that will be able to take advantage of this but I have never had a $1,000 hotel reservation as I always use points or have shorter stays. So, if you are like me, make sure you realize going in that this is for a single room/single reservation and you cannot make changes after the fact.

Here are the booking date details:

  • Redemption Period: 12:01am CST May 6, 2017 to 11:59pm CST through December 31, 2018. Limited quantity.
  • Travel Period: The Travel dates must be between April 10, 2017 and December 31, 2018.

So, yes, you are receiving a $1,000 promo code for $650 but realize that it must be a single room on a single reservation at “select” hotels that must be prepaid and you cannot cancel the reservation. If you can handle all of that, this is a great deal. Otherwise, I would consider this as more of a 20% discount or so with these restrictions. As long as you still can get that value or more, go for it!

HOW TO USE YOUR COUPON CODE

  • You must make your booking for a participating hotel with www.orbitz.com
  • Search for a hotel for your desired stay dates, within the travel period given above.
  • During the booking process, on the payment page you will see the link “Enter a coupon” where you can enter the coupon code.
  • Enter the coupon code in the relevant field and then click the “Apply” button. If your booking is eligible, the applicable discount will be subtracted from the price of the travel reservation before the application of any taxes, applicable fees or additional costs.
  • This offer does not apply to multi-room bookings.
