How does Travelzoo work?

Silver Travel Advisor’s Glynis Sullivan has the answers.

The world of travel amazes and excites me but, like many people, our priority is to find somewhere where we want to go at the right price – a good deal. Travelzoo helps us to do just that.

Travelzoo Travelzoois an internet provider company that publishes deals for more than 2,000 travel, entertainment and local business such as restaurants and spas. It enables companies to widely advertise holidays that they can offer at a discounted price. Seasonal city breaks, country retreat breaks and activities for a wide variety of people and the diverse tastes of the seasoned traveller are all on offer.

It is free to sign up for the Travelzoo website to access these amazing offers. From Madeira, to the Maldives, a British weekend break or spa; or why not just sit back and relax with an afternoon tea in a lovely hotel?

The Top 20 offers are sent to you each week by email newsletter straight to your computer. Holidays and breaks that have been chosen for Travelzoo’s signature Top 20 are from a wide variety of travel companies, and hotels are selected by an experienced team of deal experts.

How it works

You find the offer you like and buy it either directly through Travelzoo, or you receive a voucher from Travelzoo, and then you choose the dates you wish to go by contacting the offer provider, the holiday company, the hotel, the restaurant etc of your choice.

All these questions can be found out from the holiday provider website before you buy through Travelzoo and it is well worth checking to see if this deal suits you.

We have used Travelzoo on many occasions and have a voucher “pending” to go to The Crown Hotel in Harrogate for a two night break. We purchased our voucher from the Travelzoo site then contacted the hotel to book our chosen date. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go at the desired date due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the hotel has a flexible policy, and we have rebooked for later in the year.

Travelzoo is trusted by millions of members around the world for high quality standards. Travelzoo has won a number of awards including Best Travel Deals Provider at the British Travel Awards for eight consecutive years, and at the Silver Travel Awards 2020. It has been awarded an “Excellent” rating on Trustpilot in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Travelzoo is currently offering fully-refundable and flexible vouchers for all UK offers to make sure members can continue to secure fantastic deals with peace of mind knowing that if their plans change, so can their bookings.
