Problem with a deal? Let us know.

As an initiative to stimulate travel across America, the U.S. Travel Association brings back its popular Daily Getaways program, which goes on sale on October 7 and runs through November 5.

The returning sale will feature exclusive and a limited number of deals from 10 major travel brands — including Choice Hotels, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG Hotels & Resorts, and Marriott International — offering discounts up to 50% off loyalty points and hotel stays. These special purchase offers will require membership in the particular loyalty programs. All are free to join.

For some, Daily Getaways comes at a time when you may need to use points before they expire, or it’s an opportunity to bank even more points for when you are ready to travel in the months ahead.

A limited number of offers will be available for online purchase each weekday beginning Thursday, October 7 at 1pm EDT until November 5, or until supplies last.

Preview and later purchase the deals at DailyGetaways.com. You can sign up for daily alerts to be reminded of the interesting deals so that you can log on early before the limited quantities sell out.

Currently, the preview offers are loaded only through October 15. So check back frequently to the Daily Getaways page daily for more deals!
