Flash sales have become increasingly popular. More and more hotels are using them to sell inventory especially in low seasons.
Some of them deal more with high-end properties and some with the mid end. Then there is also the distinction between pure travel websites like Secret Escapes and ones like Groupon that offer all kinds of experiences.
Here is our pick of the leading players in flash sales.
1 – Luxury Link
Luxury Link goes beyond the luxury properties you’d expect to give you access to boutique hotels and unique, under-the-radar hideaways at insider prices. Travelers can explore, daydream and discover their next destination property, and book exclusive accommodations at a significant value.
2 – Jetsetter
Jetsetter is your most well-traveled friend, the one with great taste and inside connections, who you call when you need advice on where to go, where to stay, and what to do when you get there. We travel. There’s nothing we’d rather do with our spare time, and we’re guessing you feel the same. Since April 2013, Jetsetter has been a part of the TripAdvisor family of travel sites.
