Groupon getaways vary in length but they always advertise the price for the least amount of nights the deal is available for. For example, if you see a deal with a 2 or 3 night stay, they will advertise how much it is for 2 nights. Some deals may include flights, shuttle busses, breakfast but read the entire deal to know what is included.

While you may be tempted to purchase a deal once you see the savings Groupon advertise, don’t purchase just yet. Make sure you aren’t buying a getaway just because it is a good deal. It should be a holiday that has everything you are interested in and if it does not check certain boxes then you should not buy it no matter how good a deal it is. If it doesn’t, many of the things it may include will go to waste.

As with any holiday or package you purchase, it is always advisable to read the fine print. It is in this section of the deals that you will come across any hidden fees, expiration dates and blackout dates that are important to note regarding when you can actually book your stay. Research online forums and see what others have to say about the same package holiday they booked through Groupon.

If you really want to know how much you saving with a Groupon holiday deal, research the trip yourself and see what total you can come up with if you booked it on your own. Perhaps there is an airport closer by to you that is cheaper to fly out of that can save you money. Or maybe you enjoy eating out on your own and don’t want to be limited to eating in the hotel. All factors are on the table when determining the true value of any savings Groupon have to offer.
