Arlington Heights, Ill., June 28, 2011 – Restaurant.com strongly recommends summer vacation travel as important therapy for stress busting and attitude adjusting. Summer travel requires advance planning and a survival kit that includes sunglasses, sunscreen, flip-flops, cold beverages and Restaurant.com gift certificates.
The company brings family and friends together to relax, converse and enjoy dining out. Restaurant.com helps deepen relationships and create lasting memories one dining experience at a time. Restaurant.com also offers savings at more than 18,000 restaurants nationwide.
“Summer vacations can be expensive, especially with high gas prices. So finding ways to save while traveling is always important,” says Cary Chessick, CEO of Restaurant.com. “Restaurant.com dining certificates can help make a difference.”
Leisure travelers are dealing with soaring costs for gas, airfare and lodging, but no one is suggesting the family skip its summer vacation. Travelers usually plan ahead to get airline and hotel discounts, but not savings at restaurants.
“My boyfriend and I literally wrote the book on traveling for free, or very little money,” says Shelley Seale, author of the travel blog, How To Travel For Free. “We use Restaurant.com on most of our trips as one method for saving big money in travel.”
The company encourages vacationers to plan dining destinations ahead of time to find savings. Travelers can search the website by location, then refine their search by cuisine, atmosphere, attire, accepted payment and more.
“When we’re planning our family vacations, I go online to look for the good places to eat and print out Restaurant.com gift certificates before we go,” says Jill Cataldo, author of the nationally-syndicated newspaper column, "Super-Couponing Tips," read by more than 20 million consumers each week.
Now through June 30, summer travelers can save 80 percent on already discounted Restaurant.com gift certificates with the promo code TRAVEL.
“It’s wonderful even when you’re traveling somewhere you’ve never been,” says Cataldo. “You can do your homework on the restaurants and pretty much know what you’re going to spend when you get there. It takes a lot of the pressure off.”
