These Hotels Are Offering Massive Discounts for Future Travel Plans in 2020

If you’re like me, most of your quarantine days have been spent daydreaming about the day you’ll be asked for your boarding pass and passport. Day 30 of quarantine, and I was ready to take a light jog around the block with my suitcase to simulate the airport experience (kidding! but, kind of serious). Just as much as we’re itching to travel, hotels are awaiting our arrival. The American Hotel and Lodging Association cites that hotels have lost over $18 billion in room revenue since mid-February – and millions of jobs have been cut as a result!

While it doesn’t look like we’ll be soaring through the skies anytime soon, now’s the time to plan the trip you’ve always dreamed of. A silver lining of this chaos is that many beaaaauuuuutiful hotels are offering credits and ‘bonds’ to purchase for future stays.

Here’s how it works: you purchase a hotel bond at a low cost, and when you use the voucher on a future stay – it’s worth even MORE money than what you paid for it.

From Chi-Town to Thailand, you can get bonds at several top-rated hotels from Porter and Sail’s Hotel Credit program. The best part is that for every voucher purchased, they give a voucher to a healthcare worker: If anyone deserves the bliss of a getaway, it’s doctors and nurses. So – it’s self serving AND for a good cause! Sold! The program is completely legitimate, and has been featured in notable publications from USA Today to Travel and Leisure.

Here are 10 STUNNING places on board with the program:
