Daily Getaways is an annual sale of discounted hotels and other travel related bundles offered by the U.S. Travel Association. This year the sale will run from April 4, 2016 through May 6, 2016 with a different deal every day during that period. Currently only the first two weeks of deals have been announced. Let’s take a look.

- Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Package for $500 (Two nights, dinner for two, two show tickets and more.)
- Rio Las Vegas Golf Package for $520 (Two nights, $100 dining credit, a round of golf for two & more.)

- Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas Luxury Package for $1,400 (Three nights in a Suite, show tickets, $200 dining credit and more.)
- I think the IHG Rewards Club price is fairly decent, although not the lowest we have seen and I am sure between their various promotions that many of you have a nice stash.
- If you are going to visit a SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park this year, then you probably won’t do better than this deal.
- Choice Hotels has some very reasonably priced properties in Europe and many have accommodations for families. I wouldn’t buy those points speculatively, but if you have a use for them then this can be a very good deal.
- The Vegas packages are a yawn, since rates vary so much depending on what is going on in town. I would hate to lock up so much money. Perhaps the exception to this is the Excalibur package if you want to stay and eat there. $400 worth of dining credit and a room with show tickets is very nice for $450, but then again it is the Excalibur.
- As for Wyndham, I wouldn’t buy these speculatively, but they have some night properties where $150 would be a decent discount.
- The rest of the deals are alright, but don’t really stand out to me.
I’ll cover the rest of the deals when they are released, but as of now I think I’ll probably go for some theme parks tickets and that is all. If I didn’t already have a nice stash of IHG points I would consider those for the simplicity, but I can get them for a similar price most of the time. Happy shopping!
