iTrip Travel Experiences: 3 Special Gift Ideas

Vacation Rental Gifts

Know someone who could use a break? Consider booking a vacation rental for a long weekend or week. Many destinations offer discounted pricing in the off-season, making a vacation rental an affordable option. Send mom to the beach for a few days, send dad on a golf or fishing trip. Couples will find several options for busy parents, whether they travel together or separate. A few days away may provide the perfect break and leave them feeling recharged.

Just pick a destination and set the dates to see what’s available. For ideas, visit the iTrip destinations page and read about 65-plus locations in the U.S. and Canada. To keep current, sign up for iTrip Vacations® deals, which change on a regular basis.

Pick an Activity

Those looking for a specific activity will find dozens of things to do. For example, on the West coast whale-watching ranks as a must. In mountain destinations, consider booking a ski lesson, guided tour or dinner show. In beach destinations, schedule a cruise or dolphin-watching excursion. Book a fun activity and gift the adventure to a loved one.

In addition, many iTrip Vacations® destinations offer Free Fun through Xplorie. Guests who book with iTrip receive free admission to major attractions and activities, saving travelers hundreds of dollars. A few examples include a free round of golf, ski equipment rentals, boat tours, cruises, ziplining and escape rooms. To find out if a destination offers Free Fun, contact a local iTrip property manager.

Plan in Advance

Not everyone can travel during the holiday season. That’s why planning a trip in advance may serve as an ideal gift. Organize and book an entire trip in advance. This allows guests to make small payments for a few months and gives the recipient something to look forward to before the dates. Additionally, plan a special trip for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, birthdays or friends’ occasions. Pair the occasion with travel and some fun things to do for a gift that keeps giving.
