With Daily Getaways you can purchase discounted travel packages, but you have to be really quick. At 1pm EDT every weekday from now through 5/4 there is a new offering. The best deals will sell out in seconds, so you need to be waiting on the page at 12:59pm and refreshing the page.
-6 Fairmont Ovation Collection C Certificates: $1,800
-3 Fairmont Ovation Collection B Certificates: $610
Daily Getaways advertises these sales as being 6 nights in Hawaii or 3 nights in Scottsdale, but in reality they’re much more flexible than that.
The 6 nights in Hawaii certificates are actually good for any Fairmont Collection A, B, or C hotel, so you can also use them at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Vancouver, voted the best hotel in Canada. Or you can use them at Fairmont Mayakoba, half an hour south of Cancun among dozens of other hotels. Mind you, the Kea Lani Maui isn’t a bad redemption either 😀
The 3 nights in Scottsdale certificates can be used for any Fairmont Collection A or B hotel. That means you can also use them at the picturesque Fairmont Banff Springs or Chateau Lake Loiuse among dozens of other options.
You can view all of the Fairmont collection hotels by category here.
They can be used anywhere from 1 at a time to all in one stay and you get free breakfast for 2 every day as well. The certificates never expire.
Tomorrow I’ll be celebrating Passover, so I’ll miss out on what’s easily the best Daily Getaways offering:
