Research: Not Possible to Earn Enough Points to Travel With Them?

Approximately 75 percent of Americans do not believe that earning enough loyalty program points to be able to travel with them is possible — yet 60 percent of them say that being able to redeem points for a vacation is a key factor in booking travel.

Another issue is that Americans are notoriously bad at using their limited annual vacation time; and one of the biggest hurdles is planning and flexibility. Recent research from U.S. Travel’s Project: Time Off revealed that 48 percent — or nearly half — of people give six weeks or less advanced notice for vacation at work, and many are not even asking.

“Our new research shows there is a disconnect between how consumers perceive the ability to leverage loyalty program points and deals for future travel,” said Laura Holmberg, U.S. Travel’s Vice President, Program and Marketing Services. “With more points for sale this year than ever before, Daily Getaways makes accumulating points more accessible, which opens up opportunities to redeem for travel many Americans may never have thought possible.”

Daily Getaways not only offers the most loyalty program points for sale at significant discounts just in time for the busy summer travel season; but it also helps consumers with travel planning solutions — and by taking advantage of discounted points and other deals which are more accessible and easier to acquire through Daily Getaways, Americans can lock in more affordable travel while also preserving flexibility.


U.S. Travel Association commissioned Edelman Intelligence to conduct a five-minute, online survey among a nationally representative sample of 1,000 adults in the United States who are at least 18 years of age. The margin of error for this sample is +/- 3.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. The survey was fielded between Wednesday, March 21, 2018 and Friday, March 23, 2018.

If you are quick enough to secure them when they are available starting on April 9, the deals offer significant savings — but they last only for a limited time.

I hope that you are able to score the deals which you want.
