Traveling is arguably one of the most enriching experiences. Hopping on a plane with a ticket to explore the world is an opportunity to—literally and figuratively—expand your horizons, learn about new cultures, and indulge in a flurry of unforgettable experiences. And since your travel plans have likely been on pause over the last year, I'd venture to say that you're itching to get back to it—at least, I know I am. But as anyone with a case of wanderlust knows, the price of seeing the world doesn't come cheap. Enter: Tripadvisor Plus.
You're likely already familiar with Tripadvisor, the world's largest travel guidance platform, but did you know they can help you save even more on flights, hotels, car rentals, and experiences too? Thanks to their new annual subscription model called Tripadvisor Plus, you can score major deals on all your upcoming trips for a fee of $99 a year. For reference, members save an average of $350 per stay, so you'll likely recover your annual fee on your very first trip (plus, think of all experiences you can book with the money you're saving!).
Love shopping for your home and scoring the best deals? We can help.
So, where exactly are these savings coming from? You'll find members-only pricing on most flights (and keep an eye out for deal alerts for extra savings), deals on more than 400,000 experiences (think: sunset cruises, private tours, museum passes, and theme park tickets), and an extra 25% off Hertz rental cars with a complimentary year of Five Star Elite Status. You'll be jet-setting in no time with deals this generous!
While the dollar amount in savings alone is enough to get excited over, it's the value of each trip that really makes this membership shine, especially after a year sans travel. "We all care about saving money but, in travel, saving money isn’t about keeping cash in your bank account; it’s about spending where it matters. It’s not about the lowest price or biggest discount; it’s about the best value for you on your terms," the company says in a statement. Lindsay Nelson, chief experience and brand officer for Tripadvisor adds, "That's why we created Tripadvisor Plus — a program that helps members become better travelers by saving them money so they can get more out of every trip they take. More experiences, more memories, more travel, more human connection." She continues, "save more to spend more on what you've been missing, whether a quick weekend away or a postponed honeymoon."
