Travelzoo, Travelocity Offer Earth Day Specials

Travelzoo, the global Internet media company with more than 18 million subscribers, and Travelocity, one of the largest travel companies in the world, are both offering promotions this year in honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

Travelzoo's Earth Day hotel deals page features offers from only LEED-certified hotels. All deals are researched and test-booked by Travelzoo staff. A few examples of deals offered: The Orchard Hotel is offering a $99 rate--a $100 discount; the CityFlats Hotel in Holland, Mich., is offering a rate of $109--an $80 discount; and the Courtyard Portland City Center (Ore.) is offering a $94 rate--a $75 discount.

Travelocity is highlighting the top 40 green hotel deals on its site. Savings of up to 40 percent are available. The company will flag the more than 75 global eco-friendly hotels participating in the sale with an "Earth Day" sale tag, and only hotels that are included in Travelocity's Green Hotel Directory are eligible to participate. Travelocity's Green Hotel Directory currently includes more than 1,500 global eco-friendly hotels.

I have received many press releases from individual hotel properties that are offering Earth Day packages. What will you be doing this year to put more heads in beds on the greenest day of the year?

It's awesome to see large companies like Travelocity stepping up to the plate to help reward hotels with green amenities to give incentives for booking.

At, we're doing a "promo" for Earth Day, but it's a little different. We're giving away 100% of our revenue on Earth Day to a local food bank in Orlando, where our headquarters is located. We wanted to do something that gave back to our community, and we hope that people will feel good about their travel knowing that 100% of the booking commissions from their travels went to a great charity.
