Travel season is upon us and with gas prices increasing, we’re all looking for travel deals.
A recent survey from Bing, the decision engine from Microsoft, found that 80% of adults 18+ said they were likely to pick their summer vacation destination based on whether or not they could find a deal or redeem a coupon to save money. With high fuel costs, sky-high gas prices and new airline fees every other week, it’s no surprise that travelers are looking for a good deal more than ever before.
The flash sale/deal aggregator market is more cluttered than ever, giving travelers tons of options for finding the best deals when planning their vacation or finding a good deal while on the road. This is likely the reason why nearly 50% of adult survey respondents say they use more local deals and coupons than they did last year. But keeping track of these deals, especially while on the road, can be a headache in itself.
To help travelers find local deals while on the go, Bing recently released a great tool that locates deals whether you’re in NYC today or LA tomorrow. Travelers can visit m.Bing.com (Bing’s mobile website), which uses the GPS capability on your iPhone or Android to find deals based on your location. Bing aggregates over 200,000 local deals in over 14,000 cities from Groupon, Living Social, Restaurant.com, Tippr and more, saving you all that time spent each day sorting through endless deal alert emails!
On the road and looking for some good eats? Or maybe you’re looking for a good deal on tickets to a museum, or a great spa discount? If so, check out m.Bing.com during your next trip, which will pinpoint your location on your iPhone or Android, and find the perfect deal right where you are. You can search more than 20 categories or by a specific keyword to find the deal that suits your needs. No downloads are necessary!
