If you always dreamed of bucket list destinations such as Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives or Fiji keep an eye on these sites and you will find exclusive resorts in these destination on sale at any time.

Travel club for Americas and Europe – Jetsetter

Jetsetter website

Launched in 2009 and mostly focused on the Americas and Europe with short inroads into the popular Asia destinations such as Thailand, Vietnam or Cambodia, Jetsetter is also a good go-to website for hotel reviews and good travel reads. Since they have been around for a while they have a large database and loyal following. They occasionally include trips not just hotel booking so you can find a trip to Galapagos or Spain on it too. To complement the flash sales, Jetsetter, like all the other sites, offers a list of tried and tested hotels at best available rates so you are sure that Tripadvisor 5* rating is not a scam and it is truly a luxury resort. Jetsetter also has an app and offers secret hotels where the name is not revealed and the discount substantial. 

Travel club with the best of Europe – Splendia

Splendia site

Splendia site

Focused on Europe with some sprinkling of American and Asian hot spots, Splendia is the longest running of the luxury travel sites. They not only offer flash sales but most of their business comes from the list of curated hotels with whom the company says it established long term relationships. They put extra emphasis on discovering hidden gems away from the well known hotels and their reward system, similar to that of airlines, encourages guests to book through them in exchange for redeemable points and benefits for their next booking. Starting at Silver status you can go up to Gold to improve the level of benefits you get.

Travel club for flash sales only – Secret escapes

Secret Escapes

Very similar to the previous two and with featured sales across Europe and some Middle Eastern locations. Secret Escapes only offers flash sales and they do not sell hotels at regular prices. They have a membership program and additional benefits. They pride on bringing the hidden gems such as studios, castles or villas and they negotiate goodies on behalf of their guests.

  • Yes, the shoulder seasons of spring and fall are great times for travel, as many places offer great deals. Thx for sharing.

  • Oh wow, I didn’t actually know about any of these sites. Procrastination level is about to reach its peak as a shop for my next holiday…… 😉

  • I have just bookmarked each and every single one of these! Thank you for sharing and helping me spend even more hours searching for my next prefect (and money saving) adventure! Everybody needs a bit of luxury in their lives, right?!

    • I completely agree. I love searching for the perfect place, and enjoy it much more when it results in a fantastic deal- have fun!

  • Girl Unspotted

    I didn’t know any of these at all, so it’s great to hear about these options. Definitely going to be bookmarked for future references!

  • Holly

    I wasn’t aware of any of these sites and will have to look into these a bit more.

  • Christina

    I had never heard of these travel clubs. Have I been living under a rock? Some of our bucket list items now seem within reach. Pinning this for sure!

  • Karla Ramos

    Thanks for these Mar, I will be looking out for flash sales. You can really find good deals. I never heard of these clubs. They all seem really good. Thanks for sharing this.

  • Earth’s Attractions

    Travel clubs are great – especially when they bring sales 😉 Great recommendations – I didn’t know some of those included on your list, so thank you for them!

  • Marteen Lane

    It never even crossed my mind to join a travel club but with discounts like that I will!

  • Joe Ankenbauer

    That’s a pretty cool idea. I’m more of a solo traveler, but a travel club seems interesting and worth a shot!

  • I’m sure I’m missing great deals from not being part of these travel clubs but for some reason I can’t help but ask what’s n it for them. That being said those hotels look great.

    • All hotels are sometimes running low occupancy so a good way to fill inventory is by selling some of it when occupancy is low, at discounted prices. it is a way for them to fill the rooms when their sales are not as high as expected. Flash sales are, as the name indicates, flash: short, last minute and limited!

  • Joe Ankenbauer

    This is a pretty nice list of travel clubs. I’ve never really been a part of any travel clubs or used travel clubs before, but I need to look in to joining some of the to take advantage of some of the flash sales.

  • It makes me wonder with all of the travelling we do so frequently if it is worth it for us to join. Then again we hardly stay in hotels. For a family of 5, it is pretty hefty in price.

  • Christina Guan

    I actually never knew about travel clubs but WOW at those discounts. I usually feel like my money goes further when I backpack, but I do admit I dream sometimes of visiting gorgeous places like the Maldives or Bora Bora. Definitely tempted to join a few of these and take advantage of the (relatively) low prices.

  • Been looking for something like this! I hope they have a lot of options for Asia Pacific! Thanks for sharing, Mar!

  • Jessica

    Voyage Prive sounds perfect for me as I have been getting great flight deals with Qatar Airways. I should look at their partnership deals and might get a good one.

  • Sonal Kwatra

    Wow! This is sorta embarrassing but I had no idea there were clubs for hotel deals.
