Common and Frequently Asked Questions from the certificate provider.
How can we offer this?The reason we are able to do this is because hotels and resorts rarely experience full occupancy. So what they do is contract with promotional companies, like us, to give these rooms out at deep discounts to get people to come in to see what they have to offer. When hotels and resorts have empty rooms, they do not make any money and it’s a waste of a good room. Although the hotel lost the price of the room, regardless they can still let you stay for a fraction of the cost in the hopes that you might stay longer, eat in their in-house restaurants, spend money at their shops and casinos or even take advantage of their amenities (spa, room service, etc.). Then when you leave, after having a great time, they hope that you’ll come back to stay with them in the future and maybe even tell a few friends about them. This builds brand loyalty and increased repeat and referral business for the participating properties.

There are fees associated with this offer so obviously this is not a “free” trip. This certificate offers a deep discount on your next vacation that you normally would not be able to get without have being rewarded with a certificate.
