Update: Code has reached its maximum number of uses and is now dead.
You enter the code at the ‘review and continue’ screen, after selecting travel details and before inputting passenger information. And it does seem to take $300 off.
That’s a great deal if you want to book air and hotel together. Traditionally folks have been able to also use these for air-only discounts, by choosing the cheapest possible hotel they can find and not using/checking into that hotel. Basically finding a hotel that’s less than $300 means you save on the air alone.
The way that this has worked in the past has been to use the ‘advanced search’ with flight+hotel and specifying that you want a hotel in a different city entirely from where your flights take you.
Various cities in Thailand and in India have notoriously cheap hotels.
I haven’t tested whether the technique is working with this discount code. And there’s always a chance that Travelocity will not honor it booked that way (as they didn’t honor a similar deal this past summer on the US website.
This is a great deal even straight-up, a $750 air and hotel package for $450. Whether or not it can be leveraged to be even better (and you might be able to separately use the discount with the cheapest flights you can find along with the hotel you want) is something I’d normally test before posting but I’m in a rush this morning, and appreciate the ‘wisdom of crowds’ effect of my readers to report back their experiences.
If you do book at Travelocity.ca make sure to use a credit card that charges to foreign currency transaction fees.
