New Family Travel Auction Site Launches
FamilyGetaway.com, a new website for value-seeking families, just launched and is offering travel packages at up to 65 percent off retail prices at places like the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa in Koloa, Hawaii, Highmark Steamboat Springs in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa.
Owned by the same company as LuxuryLink.com, FamilyGetaway.com operates in a similar manner as the popular luxury travel website by offering two purchase options:
-Auction: Those with flexible travel dates can submit bids on the package of their choice, assuring the website’s best values.
-Buy Now: For those with less flexibility, there is the Buy Now option that still offers steep discounts (often up to 50 percent off!).
FamilyGetaway.com also allows visitors to search by availability of onsite Kids’ Clubs, and children’s ages, in addition to aggregating properties into specific categories like “hotels with kid-only pools.”
The 100 properties worldwide and 200 exclusive family travel packages featured on the site accommodate a range of family sizes (properties sleep 3-28 people), and ages (children from 0-17) making it easy to search for the perfect spot for your next family reunion, beach escape, or mountain retreat.
