This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Groupon Getaways. All opinions are 100% mine.
As my regular readers know, I love to travel and explore the world around me. I love driving to nearby places in South Florida, like the Florida Keys or the Gulf Coast of Florida, as well as hopping onto a plane and jetting off to a far away destination...like the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe and beyond! It may seem that I live an extravagant lifestyle due to my frequent travels, but the reality is that much of my travel is for work (this blog) and my personal travel is budgeted down to the penny! Thankfully, there are ways to stretch my travel budget even farther, like by using Groupon Getaways for vacations!

How to Redeem Your Groupon Getaways
You simply purchase the Groupon, then call the number for the tour company with your Groupon in hand to give them your confirmation number. You'll make travel arrangements with them over the phone and you're all set! You can also ask them about setting up additional tours that aren't part of the package. Sounds pretty easy, right? It totally is!

I have used Groupons before, but never for a getaway. I will look into it.
Groupon is such a good site to try and save money for traveling! Anytime I can save money on anything is a good thing! I love the ideas for traveling and the discounts!

I LOVE Groupon! I've looked at their getaways, but I haven't found 'the one' I want to purchase just yet.
I use Groupon all the time for restaurants. I need to look into this it looks like you can get some great deals.
My husband is addicted to Groupon. "Do you need twelve pairs of socks?" Nope, I'm good. But this is something I would actually love to get!
I've used Groupon for other things but never for travel. I may have to change that after reading this!

I love sites like Groupon and Living Social. I have been able to find so many good eats and fun places to travel to here in my state. And, I save a bit of money. I also get cash back through Fat Wallet.
I've heard such wonderful things about Groupon, I really need to look into it more.
I've always heard of great savings on local. It's good to see them branching out intro travel!
I have looked at Groupon before but never bought anything. I had no idea this was even a thing. How cool and a great way to save!
I love Groupon. I use their deals all the time.
We we just looking at Groupon for Spring Break. There were some good options there.
Groupon always has fabulous deals! I see a lot of great deals for travel! Huge savings! Great place to look!
I purchased a Groupon vacation package twice because they were such good deals. They don't always offer the destinations that interest me but every now and then they do! I highly recommend checking them out when planning to travel.
I love Groupon, but have never thought to use it for a vacation package. These are some great money saving ideas.
I have to admit, I've always been really curious about using Groupon Getaways. Glad to know they really can save a lot of money and send you to some awesome places - I'll definitely be checking it out 🙂
You know, I am sad to say that I have never used Groupon before! I didn't realize they even had a travel section. I will definitely be using this to help plan my next vacation. A few dollars saved means more money for fancy umbrella drinks!
I had no idea that Groupon had travel options! Now I want to go everywhere and I think it will be easier to convince the hubby to travel more when I can do it for less with Groupon!

This is a great way to see the world for less!
I have been so tempted to use groupon for our next vacation. We travel quite a bit, thanks for the advice on using groupon for the entire experience.
