Good news if you’re planning a winter getaway: deals site Groupon has unveiled a new travel discovery app – Groupon Getaways. It says the app will give users access to more than 25,000 deals in destinations around the world.
The Getaways app is available on iPhone and Android in the US and Canada. It lets you browse by theme and select to search for deals in a specific area on the map to see hotel offers within 30 miles. You’ll also get access to 60 percent off flash deals on hotels and holiday packages.
The app also features same-day bookings with mobile-only deals on hotels nearby with immediate availability. Users of the Getaway app that pick hotels in destinations selected by Groupon get five percent of the price back in the company’s imaginatively titled reward points, Groupon Bucks.
Travelers who use the Getaways app to book a trip and enter the promo code APP20 will get 20 percent off until November 14. One traveler who enters the company’s sweepstakes – running until December 10 via the app – will win a holiday for two valued up to $4,000.
