Has anybody used Living Social or Groupon for vacations? My FI and I would love to do something more adventurous, maybe even go over to Europe for our Honeymoon. Theres so many great deals that include airfare for around 1800$ per person but I’m a little wary because I’ve never traveled our of the US/Puerto Rico and definitely not with Living Social or Groupon deals.
Does anybody have experience traveling with these companies? What was your experience?

adomke: A nightmare!!! Esp Living and Social. Bear in mind I’m in Ireland so it may be different. I’ve tried to redeem vouchers and been completely ignored by the company offering the service. So I contacted Living and Social and I was put on hold for over an hour before hung up on. I never got to speak to somebody in the company. I found groupon a bit better because they had better customer service.

adomke: My BFF just bought a groupon for a trip to Ireland. They aren’t going until March, but the trip is booked… I’ve been searching for my own trip. We’ll see what happens.

We used Groupon for our honeymoon to Belize and had an absolutely wonderful experience! If you do a thread search, I think you’ll be able to find more stories.

I’ve used both for our trips to the Bahamas, Mexico and Dominican Republic. It was great and I’ve never had a problem. Actually, our room in Mexico was our favorite room so far and we’ve traveled a lot. We fly for free though, so I’ve never messed with one that included airfare so idk how that works.

I booked through living social but then found out the date we wanted wasn’t available. We were given a full refund since it wasn’t in the fine print. Later I did find some pretty nasty reviews about that hotel in Jamaica. Overall, I prefer groupon over living social though
