EscapeU.com might seem like yet another attractive travel portal at first glance. It’s easy-to-use, quick and offers low priced travel, which is not far from the norm. But as with many things in life, it’s the details that really count. So what makes EscapeU.com so special? One fact is their partnership with the Discovery Channel Store and the Travel Channel for discounts on store items. The second is their 110% price match on hotels in their Save Rate Hotels program, which are denoted by an icon.
It’s true other well-known travel sites offer their clients 100% cash back or will match the rate if the booking party finds the same hotel cheaper on another web site. However, EscapeU.com takes this customer service concept a step further and offers 110% within 24 hours if the hotel rate can be found cheaper elsewhere.
The only other well-known site to do anything close to such an offer is Expedia, which gives buyers the price match and a $50 coupon. While $50 might sound like a good deal on the surface, consider the fact that 10% can add up to far more than a $50 coupon. For example, if a week stay at a Save Rate Hotel costs $700 ($100 per night, which is average for most hotels) then the customer can expect to receive $70 back from EscapeU.com in the off chance that they find a lower price somewhere on the web. At Expedia, they can only expect $50 back no matter how much they’ve spent on the hotel.
Visitors who arrive at EscapeU.com can expect to find a colorful, friendly site filled with over 57,000 hotels and resorts worldwide, an online cruise search with real-time booking functions and a powerful flight search engine. Visitors can also get competitive pricing on last minute vacation packages booked from 3 hours to 14 days before departure. In the end, EscapeU.com is not only meeting the challenge of established web travel agents but also exceeding them on many levels. Take for example their partnership with the Discovery Channel Store (discoverystore.com).
Escapeu.com was created with the mind set that the world needed a travel site that provided more than just dedicated
customer service and the best travel deals on the web. As a result, they partnered with the Travel Channel/the Discovery Channel Store. Visitors, and customers alike, can use Escapeu.com’s exclusive coupon code to the Discovery Channel Store for $10 off any purchase of $60 or more. As part of the Travel Channel, the Discovery Channel Store offers travel related products and accessories.
What that means is anyone who visits EscapeU.com, or books a trip, there can get discounts on any items the Discovery Channel Store carries. For example, visitors can buy binoculars for a trip to the Grand Canyon or camping gear for the Rockies. There are also a host of videos available too so anyone planning a trip to Europe, Asia or Africa can learn more about the area’s history or must-see attractions. EscapeU.com is the only major travel site partnered with such a store. So not only can a traveler purchase discount airline tickets, hotel rooms or vacation packages, they can also shop at a discount for items they need for the journey.
In addition to consistently finding new opportunities to interact with their website users, EscapeU.com is continually developing the latest in travel technology while opening new doors of opportunity in how people travel and buying supplies they need for the trip. What that means is a new era in online travel is arriving and EscapeU.com is the only company ushering it in.
