'Wanderlust' is the strong, innate urge to travel. Wandealust’ is that same impulse to explore the world, coupled with the desire to find a great travel deal! To the delight of travelers everywhere, Wandealust™ (http://wandealust.com) has officially launched in time for the fall travel season. The travel-specific coupon site offers hand-picked destination deals from across a growing list of popular online travel sites, such as Hotels.com, Orbitz, Vegas.com, as well as direct hotel, airline and car rental companies, including Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the InterContinental Hotels Group and Thrifty Car Rental.

With 1 in 5 travel reservations placed over the internet, online shoppers in the US will account for $136.4 billion in online travel sales in 2013, with that number expected to grow to $168.1 billion by 2017 (eMarketer, May 2013). As coupon and deal sites have become popular with online shoppers to find hotel, flight, vacation package and car rental deals, Wandealust offers a better way for online shoppers to find discounted savings to the cities they want to travel.

Find Travel Deals by Destination

The Wandealust™ concept came out of the frustration of users of coupon sites to find relevant discounts to the destinations they want to travel, as well as accurate (or easy to understand) coupon or deal eligibility language (as seen in the comments section of even the most popular websites). Since most coupon sites simply aggregate offers, like electronics, groceries, or clothing, the discount items are listed by either product category or online retail store. While this approach may work consumer products, this strategy fails to meet the search criteria of most travels (or those who plan travel) who have a specific destination and timeframe for travel.

Where do you Wandealust™?

Wandealust believes that online shoppers should start the research process already armed with knowledge of the best-available discounts to their destination. This is where Wandealust adds value to those who want to save on leisure travel, business trips or family vacations to popular city center, business and resort destinations in domestic and international locations. Here’s how they intend to accomplish their vision.

Hand-Picked Deals by Destination – Wandealust hand-picks deals based on popular and seasonal destinations from all the major travel sites – in domestic and international locations. Shoppers can browse by city in the search bar on the homepage to find a list of the best promotional codes, mobile app coupons, daily deals, last minute deals and more. With the best savings to their destination listed on a single page, online shoppers can easily compare all the available coupons and deals – from both travel sites and direct operators – to choose the right deal according to their budget.

Online Booking Advice – Wandealust understands that confusing ‘terms and conditions’ language can be huge barriers to finding a great travel deal. Fortunately, Wandealust solves this problem by offering helpful icons that clearly explain the qualifying language of the booking terms and conditions, with convenient countdown clock to notify when the offer will expire. Finally, Wandealust Advice tells users if there’s a better travel deal available from a different travel site, or the opportunity to stack a daily or last minute deal with an eligible promotional code to realize even greater savings!

Travel Deal Advisors – Is a 12% off Hotels.com coupon code better than an Orbitz promo code for $50 off $300 for the same hotel reservation? With so many great ways to save on travel – and variable pricing for hotels and flights standard in the travel industry – sometimes it helps to seek the advise of an expert. Whether it’s stretching your travel dollars with a luxury hotel experience, or earning rewards with your favorite loyalty program, Wandealust’s convenient and knowledgeable Travel Deal Advisors™ will help you find the right discount based on your travel agenda. From a Facebook or Twitter post, email submission or online chat, Wandealust can assist on whatever communication or social media platform you prefer.

As the newest travel-specific coupon site, Wandealust (http://wandealust.com) is constantly expanding its inventory of promo codes, deals, rebates and loyalty point eligible bookings. Expanded services in the product roadmap include a rewards program and paid-subscription services.

Subscribers via the Wandealust Weekly email newsletter have access to hand-picked travel deals to their favorite destinations – not places they don’t travel. Stay connected with the growing online Wandealust community on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest @Wandealust.
