Over the past 20 years, Travelocity has come a long way. What began as a subsidiary of American Airlines is now one of the most popular travel websites in the world. Bought by former rival Expedia earlier this year, Travelocity continues to be a favored destination for bargain travelers due to its user-friendly interface and consumer-friendly prices.
One of the leading factors for why Travelocity has successfully built such a respected and recognizable brand is that it boasts a variety of features designed to help savvy shoppers save big bucks on their travel expenses. Dealspotr has taken the time to analyze all of these features and has boiled them down into a few handy tips listed below.
Simply put, Travelocity is not shy about releasing promo codes. Pretty much any time of year, there are at least a couple of them available. Whether they apply to the particular purchase you are looking to make is another story, however. They tend to be more focused on lodging and it's somewhat rare to find codes for flights, rental cars or cruises.
It's slightly more complicated to redeem promo codes on travel sites than traditional ecommerce sites, because you first have to go through the reservation process. Once you've selected your travel dates and picked the hotel or flight that you want, you'll be taken to a Checkout page. This page will contain the trip summary and text boxes for you to write in the travelers' names. The middle of the page has a "How would you like to pay?" heading. Immediately below that in somewhat small font is a link with blue text that reads "Enter a coupon or promotion code". When you click that, a text box will appear with the heading "Coupon code" above it. Enter the code in there and hit the "Apply Coupon" button.
