TravelZoo Canada: Algonquin 3-Day Adventure For 2 With Meals Only $700

TravelZoo Canada: Algonquin 3 Day Adventure For 2 With Meals Only $700

If you are looking for the trip of a lifetime in your own country, Algonquin Park is the place to go. It is absolutely gorgeous, rugged and an unspoiled gem in Ontario. Travel Zoo has a fantastic deal on for a 3-day Algonquin adventure for two including meals for only $699, was $1056.

I’ve been to Algonquin Park a multitude of times. While I’m not a back-country camper because I need amenities like showers and toilets, I’m sure it is quite the amazing adventure. I’ve been in all seasons and Summer and Fall are my favourite. Spring could mean black flies, and they get very nasty up there on cloudy days. Winter could mean not the greatest driving conditions to get north. When my husband and I were first dating, we made our way to Algonquin Park and right before we entered a 40km stretch where there is nothing, he put windshield washer fluid in the coolant tank. He realized it as we were driving and luckily we didn’t break down, but I sure broke a sweat.

In case you are wondering, I’ve seen a number of moose in my travels to Algonquin, along with a number of other wildlife.

This deal is actually available for May and June or you can pay more for an extra night in July and August. So here’s what you get: three days and two nights in a cabin retreat for $699 or four days and three nights in a cabin retreat for $899 (both with different availability dates). On top of that you’ll get all meals and excursions including canoeing, biking, hiking with expert guides. With the three-day package you’ll also get a $50 gas card, $25 credit for Highlander Brew Co. and $25 meal credit at Iron Skillet restaurant.

TravelZoo Canada: $59 For a Niagara Falls Escape

Posted by on January 16, 2014 at 8:30 AM

TravelZoo Canada: $59 For a Niagara Falls Escape

I found this fantastic deal for a trip to Niagara Falls on Travel Zoo. For only $59 you get a one-night stay in a hotel, plus a ton of other credits including meal and gaming credits, which total up to $225 on their own.

I recently stayed at the Best Western Fallsview Hotel (which is part of this deal) as part of a deal I bought last summer. I paid about $80 for my deal and got way less in credits. The hotel is fine – it was clean and had enough space to fit my family of five. We were able to walk to quite a few attractions, or use the WEGO passes that are also included with the deal (on two-night stays). I do believe we had to pay extra for parking, but this is the norm at any Niagara Falls hotel.

For only $59 you’ll get:

  • one night stay at Best Western Fallsview on a Sunday to Friday
  • $70 Ruth Chris Steakhouse dining voucher
  • $20 Outback Steakhouse voucher
  • $10 IHOP voucher
  • $100 of game play at Captain Jack’s Pirates Cove entertainment complex and admission for four to Cannon Ball Blasters and Time Freak
  • $25 slot play voucher at Fallsview Casino

If you decided you wanted to go on a Saturday night, pay $69 instead of $59. If you want to stay for two nights, you’ll pay $99 total for Sunday to Thursday or $119 arriving on a Friday or Saturday. You can even travel during spring break (March 7 – 16) for $75 a night. The two-day or the spring break deals also give you a $20 TGI Friday credit and WEGO shuttle passes for two and an additional $10 for IHOP. Spring breakers also get four IMAX tickets.

This deal is so good, I think I’m going to talk my husband into it for March Break at the Falls. The Captain Jacks place is so much fun for both the kids and the adults and $100 will get you a good 1-2 hours of fun. We also did the laser tag, which was such a fun experience for all of us. Our voucher included meal credits at The Keg and we ended up having two of them (one from another package we bought) and the waiter let us use both. I’ve never eaten at Ruth Chris, but I heard it is fantastic and $70 is a pretty sweet credit especially considering it is more than you are paying total for this deal.

Travel Zoo: Hot Deals On Experiences As Gifts

Travel Zoo has a gift idea section, with some hot deals that you could give as gifts this year.

This section is hugely populated with deal ideas and you can sort by region, type of experience and even look at the top staff picks. I think a getaway or other experience makes a sweeter gift than some electronic device or small appliance that may never get used. Travel makes us richer, don’t forget that!

Travel Zoo Canada: Whistler 1-Night Stay & Lift Tickets Only $269 (Was $534)

Posted by on November 6, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Travel Zoo Canada: Whistler 1 Night Stay & Lift Tickets Only $269 (Was $534)

Travel Zoo is showcasing an amazing deal for the Whistler Four Seasons resort in Whistler. For as low as $269, you’ll get a one-night stay and two adult lift tickets (valued at $200). There might also be some other perks, depending on the dates you book.

The pricing all depends on what date you book and range from $269 to $509, but still include the free lift tickets. As well, if you are staying from November 28 – December 25, January 2-23, February 2-6 and March 2 – April 12 you’ll also receive complimentary parking ($35 value per day), and two-for-one breakfast ($30 value per day), along with the two lift tickets.

I’d love to go to Whistler and take my kids skiing or snowboarding. I’d also just love to go on my own with my husband or a group of friends. What’s great about this deal is that the lift tickets are pretty pricey, so getting them included is a great bonus, on top of the discounted price of the room.

The hotel has some sweet features including steam room, hot tubs and a dedicated ski concierge. I am all about not really travelling over the Christmas break or March break, but would rather miss the crowds and take my kids out of school instead. A week somewhere like this is more of an education (well a different type) than stuff they could make up at school. This way I also get the better deals on pricing!

Travel Zoo Canada: $3 For 25% Off Dining In NYC

Posted by on July 6, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Travel Zoo Canada: $3 For 25% Off Dining In NYC

I frequently peruse the deals on Travel Zoo, and this one more than interested me. If you are heading to New York City this summer (or maybe this deal might convince you to go), buy this Travel Zoo deal to get 25% off your bill at more than 50 of the top New York restaurants. Your savings could be huge and meanwhile, you’ll only pay $3!

I’d love to head to NYC with the hubs. It is a great choice for a couple with kids (who will be left behind) because it isn’t too far away and it is an exciting city, which would be fine to visit for just a few days. I am such a foodie and I would totally want to eat at all the greatest restaurants, because that is a huge part of the appeal of New York.

With this Travel Zoo deal, you can buy a savings certificate, hand it in at the end of your meal, and you’ll get 25% off your bill, no matter the total! If you go with a group of friends and you spend $400, you’ll save $100 off your bill, making your voucher worth $97! You can buy as many as you like, but can only use one per meal. This means if you are going to a few different restaurants, you’ll want to buy one for each meal. You could save thousands by the end of your trip. What’s even more amazing is that the savings aren’t just on food, you’ll save 25% off your drinks and wine too! Usually these deals exclude drinks, are only valid for one person per table and there are lots of other restrictions. You can use this voucher for a table of up to eight people.

The only caveats are that you’ll have to use them during July and August. Restaurants where these certificates are valid include top spots like:

  • Bann
  • Bice
  • Duke’s
  • Sons of Essex
  • Le Midi
  • Slide
  • Alewife

Can I go to all of them, please? It would be easy to research the restaurants reviews online to decide where you want to go. There are many choices per district, too.

Travel Zoo: Atlantis Bahamas Only $149/Night

Posted by on June 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Travel Zoo: Atlantis Bahamas Only $149/Night

Atlantis in the Bahamas is having its biggest sale of the year with astonishing prices for stays in their hotel. These are the lowest prices ever advertised for them!

There are two places I really want to take my children as soon as possible. I’d love to travel the world with them, but these are more affordable and realistic options. The first is Disney, as they’ve begged me a million times to go there already. The second is the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. I have visited there while staying in the Bahamas and it is definitely a sight to behold. There is so much to do there, kids and adults will not be bored for even a second. I’m really considering talking my husband into this deal, since the prices are just so great!

With travel for this fall, from September 2nd to November 2nd, I think that is the absolute best time to go. Resorts are less busy in the fall and the weather is beautiful, not too hot and not too cool. Choose between the iconic Royal Towers for only $149 (reg. $449) a night or the five-star Cove Atlantis for $279 (reg. $640) a night. Prices are in U.S. dollars.

You can choose better view rooms for just a little more. I priced out five nights for my family (two adults, three children) and it came to only $596 plus $286.80 in fees and taxes for a total of $882.80. Usually only four people are allowed in a room, but because one of my children is under five, he is allowed and we don’t have to book a second room.

Although you don’t get food with this deal, you get so much more and for only $149 a night, you can’t even get a deal this good in Canada or the U.S. This deal includes admission to the 141 acre waterpark, which is one of the largest in the world, access to the lagoons, use of eleven different pools, three private beaches and two river rides. They have a giant aquarium, which is also great to do on rainy days and is free for Atlantis guests.

You’ll also get $25 free to play in the slots, a special twilight rate for golf and special rates for kid’s adventures.

Ok off to convince hubby… stay tuned!

Travel Zoo: $300 Off an Algonquin Getaway For 2

Posted by on April 24, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Travel Zoo: $300 Off an Algonquin Getaway For 2

Travel Zoo has an amazing deal on an Algonquin Getaway for two with travel this Spring or Summer.

If you’ve never visited Algonquin Park, I’m telling you that you are missing out. With a huge stretch of land full of wildlife, lakes and forests, this peaceful place is a must for any outdoors person. I’ve camped there a number of times, although I’m too chicken to do any sort of back country camping (I must stay connected). I’ve had friends who have done the backcountry thing and the experience has stayed with them throughout their lives. Algonquin Park is only a 2.5 hour drive from Toronto and four hour drive from Ottawa.

This deal includes an all-inclusive cabin adventure for two, with guided excursions and all meals and activities, starting at $669. You’ll stay at the Northern Edge Algonquin, which boasts a five-star rating on TripAdvisor. Here you can unwind by the lake in a wood-fired sauna, sit by the campfire or kayak across the beautiful blue abyss. At night, you’ll sleep on a feather duvet.

  • For $669, you’ll get three days and two nights with Friday or Monday arrivals in May or June (check for exact dates).
  • For $899, you’ll get four days and three nights, with arrivals Thursdays or Fridays in July or August.

Both deals are 30% off their regular price and include expert guides and all meals.

  • For $799, you’ll get get a four day, three night all-inclusive canoe safari excursion with one night in a private cabin and two in a private tent. This deal has arrivals on most Thursdays from June until September.

When you buy the voucher, you don’t have to decide on a date. Simply purchase your voucher and call the property to reserve.

Travel Zoo: $129 For A 4-Star Romantic Escape w/ Jacuzzi

Posted by on January 22, 2013 at 8:00 AM

Travel Zoo: $129 For A 4 Star Romantic Escape w/ Jacuzzi

Get a suite at the 4-star Hilton Niagara Falls with a jacuzzi for only $129 including dining credits and winery tours!

I was just looking for something like this, with my anniversary happening in four days and Valentine’s Day slowly creeping up. They say Niagara Falls is the spot for lovers and I’d have to agree. We’ve stayed in a jacuzzi room at this Hilton more than once and the experience was always amazing. Where else can you sit in a jacuzzi by a window and watch the majestic beauty of this natural landscape? And for only $129, why would you not?

This deal has a lot to offer, including a $75 dining credit at the Watermark Fallsview restaurant. I’ve eaten here and the food is very good, although pricey, but you have to expect that in Niagara Falls. The credit will get you one of your dinners paid for including drinks, so expect to spend about another $50 more depending on drinks. If you decide to leave the hotel, you can instead get a $40 credit at Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse, which sounds amazing. You also get a buffet breakfast for two at the Grand Caffe (worth $40) and a $10 lunch credit for Romano’s Macaroni Grill. My favourite part of this deal is the winery tours and tastings worth $40 at Peller Estates and Hillebrand wineries.

You can also choose to upgrade your room. The $129 deal includes one night in a two queen or one king jacuzzi room with city views. For $10 more get a two-bedroom deluxe suite with a jacuzzi, fireplace and city views. If you want fallsview, add another $20. These are all for stays Sunday to Thursday only.

You don’t have to decide right now when you will go, but you have to travel by March 22nd. There are some blackout dates, so read the deal carefully. You also have to pay for parking, which starts at $20 a night.

The hotel has an indoor pool, so if you decide not to venture out into the busy day and nightlife of the falls, you can relax, stay in your hotel and still be entertained.

TravelZoo – Great Place for Travel Deals

Posted by on January 19, 2013 at 12:00 PM

TravelZoo   Great Place for Travel Deals

If you are looking to get away this summer you really should try subscribing to the Travelzoo newsletter. I have subscribed for a while now and they email out great deals on vacations, hotels, cruises and many other fabulous travel associated deals.

I love their top 20 deals. You can get deals for anywhere and everywhere. If you can’t go very far you can just subscribe to deals within your own province for a ‘stay-cation.’

Here are some of the deals that I have seen lately in their newsletters:

  • $99 – Luxe Vermont Retreat w/$50 in Credits, Reg. $309
  • $79 – Las Vegas: Massive Suite at 5-Star Hotel
  • US $899 – 14-Night Alaska Cruise w/$150 Credit, Save $300
  • $469 & up – Costa Rica All-Inclusive Beach Vacations w/Air
  • $99 – Ottawa Hotel near Parliament Hill, $60 Off

There are some really fabulous deals that they will find for you – saving you both time and money. I successfully saved over $200 on a downtown hotel in NY a few years ago and it was a major score! It was only a few blocks from Times Square and the place was gorgeous. The price was incredible too!

Travel costs a lot of cash so travel deals can often save a huge amount of money! That is why I highly suggest signing up for their newsletter – travel costs fluctuate often and these fluctuations can cost or save you hundreds of dollars. We would prefer you save the money.

Niagara Falls 4-star escape for 2 for only $119 @ Travelzoo

Posted by on November 6, 2012 at 5:00 PM

Niagara Falls 4 star escape for 2 for only $119 @ Travelzoo

On Travelzoo right now, there’s a special offer for a one night getaway at the 4 star Marriott hotel in Niagara Falls – you can get this deal for 2 people for only $119!

This deal from TravelZoo includes:

  • A room at the 4-star Marriott Gateway on the Falls hotel
  • Buffet breakfast for two
  • $25 dining credit at Milestones Grill & Bar
  • $25 casino credit
  • Two WeGo shuttle passes

$119 is the cost for Sunday to Friday stays, but if you choose a weekend, it can be more expensive (up to $159 instead).

Being one who often needs a night away, especially with my hard-working husband who I rarely get to see, this deal is great. We can spend a night away, have breakfast, hit the casino, swim in the hotel’s indoor pool and see the Falls and not have to spend another dime. This is great as a surprise birthday or anniversary gift (hint, hint!).

The only stipulations are that dinner is only discounted, you have to pay for parking, you should book early to get the dates you want and you have to travel by January 12, 2013 with some restrictions on certain dates. But, if this is a deal you love, you can purchase more than one voucher and stay multiple nights.

Wow! 80% off, six night stay in a studio or a one-bedroom villa at Luxe villa Cerritos Surf Colony resort near Cabo San Lucas.  You can alter this deal if you choose to stay only 4 nights and upgrade to a two bedroom villa that sleeps up to five.  Have a large family?  Don’t worry; as long as everyone is under 12, they stay for free. Are you intrigued yet? Not yet? Let’s see, the area also provides horse backing, kayaking, ATV rentals & hiking. Surfer magazine calls this one of the best champion beaches around so although it isn’t stated my guess is that surfing lessons must be available nearby. Wherever there is surfing, there must be swimming. If I don’t have you liking this yet, it was $2,484, now $489. That’s a huge saving of $1,995.

I have never used Travelzoo Canada and am so impressed with the deals they have available at any given moment.  Take a peek and plan your ideal getaway.
