has announced its biggest warm
weather promotion of the year to some of the most popular vacation
destinations in the world.
“Most people agree that vacations are a good idea, however, a recent
survey we conducted with Harris Interactive showed that Americans were
still scheduled to give back a total of about 415 million unused vacation
days in 2004,” said Kari Swartz, Expedia consumer travel expert. “The fact
is that more than half of Americans say they come back from vacation
feeling better about their jobs, happier, and more productive. So we
wanted to launch a promotion that would convince people that their dreams
of sipping pina coladas on a beach in January actually can be a reality.”
Expedia’s warm weather promotion (http://www.expedia.com/sun) is for
travel through March 31, 2005, and, in some cases, as late as April 30. As
further incentive, Expedia is also offering special perks like $100
resort credits at certain properties and up to 10 percent savings on
select activities, including tours and excursions.
