Daily Getaways Promotion Returning In 2019

Daily Getaways is a promotion, sponsored by the US Travel Association, that has been offered annually as a way of encouraging US tourism. The promotion has consisted of all kinds of travel packages, including offers on car rentals, hotel stays, loyalty program points, and theme park admission. Here’s an example of some of the 2018 travel packages.

It was a great promotion when it was first introduced years ago, though over the years the deals have gotten worse and the competition for the best travel packages has increased exponentially. Nowadays it’s almost like a lottery to pick up one of the better packages, and that’s not even accounting for the deals getting worse.

It has just been confirmed that Daily Getaways will be returning in 2019, and this will be the tenth anniversary. We now know the basic details:

  • A preview of Daily Getaways packages will be available on April 29, 2019
  • The live sale of Daily Getaways packages will begin on May 6, 2019

As of now we don’t yet know what the 2019 packages will look like, though based on what we’ve seen in past years I would possibly expect to see discounts on purchased World of Hyatt points, discounted Marriott gift cards, Las Vegas hotel packages, discounted car rentals, and more.

Bottom line

We have a couple more months until the previews are available, though it’s good to know that the promotion will be returning for yet another year.

However, I don’t have especially high hopes. Many of the packages just aren’t worthwhile, and those that are worthwhile sell out within moments. I’m guessing the best offer will be from Hyatt, since they usually sell points at an attractive cost through Daily Getaways. That’s also typically the most competitive promotion, though.

Comments

  1. If this year is like any other year, where offers supposedly sell out in seconds, I will remain skeptical that many of these are actually even made available in the first place.

  2. These Daily Getaway Sales don’t have enough protection against bots. Anything that’s a good deal is just frustrating and a waste of time. I may pass altogether this year.

  3. I’m in the minority here, but I’m always looking most forward to grabbing the Choice Points packages… bought the 55,000 one last year and I wished I had splashed for more ha.

    Didn’t realize I was landing in SF during Dreamforce… was either $650 for an airport hotel, too many Marriott or Hilton points… or the $50 for the share of the Choice points I bought last year lol. Also got three nights in Brooklyn, a night at Stockholm Airport, and 9k still leftover for a rainy day… they definitely were way more useful than I even expected haha

  4. Agree with Tommy. I purchased the Choice points package and was able to get a massive discount on a suite at the Cambria Philadelphia for a vacation I had planned.
