It’s time for your annual holiday. You want a little bit of relaxation, a touch of adventure, and one of the best holiday deals your money can buy.

Let’s face it, you also want someone to plan it all for you.

Travel planning can be overwhelming and if this is your only time of the year to get away, you don’t want to spend too much time organising your dream trip.

Imagine telling your friends about the incredible luxury safari you had in South Africa at 39% off the normal price. Or the 49% discount you jagged on your cruise around the Mediterranean (flights included).

Enter TripADeal

TripADeal is Australia’s leading online travel deals website based in Byron Bay, offering unique travel experiences at massively reduced prices. There’s a clear sign of a win there. Anything from Byron has a special kind of mojo attached to it! Let’s hear it for the Aussies creating awesome travel deal websites. Woop Woop.

(Note: we have a $500 travel voucher giveaway for you too. Details at the end of the post!)

I’m impressed by the deals on offer at TripADeal.com.au. I’m currently checking out their trips to Western USA for my parents. They’re keen to go and I think I’ve found them a nice deal.

A 12 day USA Natural Wonders tour, including flights for $3,099. This is 48 % off the normal price. You find out all of this information directly from the travel deals site.

(My dream is to be able to surprise them with this tour as a gift from me for everything they have done for me as amazing parents. Manifesting Powers get to work!)

I recently looked at similar tours for them and the package prices ranged from $2230 (7 days) to $6, 275 (16 days). None of these tours included flights (and I wouldn’t recommend a 7 day trip to the US.)

I’ve also searched online for reviews, including an extensive search on TripAdvisor, and so far I’ve found glowing reviews talking about the incredible time had on a TripaDeal tour, the amazing deal they got, and the service from the company itself.

Who are TripADeal and what do they offer?

tripadeal holiday deals

TripADeal is a specialised online travel agent, offering massive discounts on holiday deals.

You can still talk to an agent directly on the phone for those still nervous about online travel bookings. Their travel consultants can help with visa information, flight connections and local tips.

The travel deals they offer have a limited purchase period and a countdown timer clearly shows you how long you have to snag the deal.

I love how many of their travel packages include flights. Searching for and booking flights can be one of the most stressful and time consuming parts of our travel planning experience.

We’ve just had to book about 5 return flights for various work events and to fly our parents in and out. It has involved lots of cursing on our end as we flick through their ten thousand pages of up-sells. No, I don’t want car hire, hotel stays, in-flight meals, and insurance with that!

To have this taken care of by someone else is awesome. Plus, if a tour does not have a flight included, they offer a concierge service that can do it for you.

They also offer a wide variety of tours for a wide range of prices. For the more independent traveller, there are travel deals you can get just on accommodation and local tours like this villa in Bali:

Or this local tour in Thailand:

Travel packages can bring comfort and security

We recently did a webinar on solo female travel in India. One of the tips that came up a couple of times in our discussion was the benefit of taking a guided tour to a place like India when you feel nervous and unsure.

There’s no need to burst too far out of your comfort zone, there are ways you can travel almost anywhere. Tours are a great way to bring that feeling of security and comfort.

Here is a tour I found for India:

And then China, one of our favourite destinations that can be a little daunting for some inexperienced travellers, or those who just want an easy experience:

TripADeal has clear terms of conditions

Some of these group deal sites can freak you out as you’re not sure if it will deliver, if there are sneaky terms in very small fine print, or if you can even get the dates you want.

I recently bought a cheap pampering package through Scoopon and stressed the entire time until I phoned the salon as I needed specific dates and wasn’t sure I was going to get them.

I’ve also recently heard of Groupon travel making it difficult to find their terms, which has been causing a headache for many people’s travel plans.

Not TripADeal. Their terms and conditions are easy to find under this tab and very clearly laid out.

tripadeal review

You know exactly what you’re going to get and what the conditions are on it, including any extra fees or surcharges.

I highly recommend you pay attention to the T&Cs before you purchase anything. Be a smart consumer! With anything we recommend, do your own research to make sure it fits your goals and needs.

If you’re a long-term, budget traveller then TripADeal may not be for you.

But if you love the security, ease and comfort of travel packages, or more short-term travel, then the holiday deals are there for you.

You can get the booking dates you want!

Getting the date right when booking travel is important. If you get it wrong, you normally won’t get your money back. With TripADeal, you don’t have to worry about missing out on a deal because you don’t have travel dates figured out yet.

If you aren’t sure of when you want to travel, you can always come back and book your dates later before you travel.

Obviously, the sooner you book, the more dates you will have to choose from. The deals will have expiry dates (although generally have long validity), so make sure you do know when you have to travel by with each deal.

But, if you do know your travel dates, you can book as soon as you purchase the deal, which is a great feature not typical of group buying sites.

They are stacking the odds in your favour to help you get the best deal that suits your travel desires. If you can’t get the dates you want, they have a money-back guarantee.

When to use TripADeal

TripaDeal is a service to use when you have a clear picture of the type of holiday experience you want, possible destinations, your time frame and budget. Knowing this will make it easier for you to act quickly and with confidence to secure your best deal.

So if you know your budget for your holiday is $5,000 you can search for something that matches that, and immediately click book, and have it organised.

Their criteria is to find experiences that are high-quality and represent great money value.

Many of the packages have added inclusions so again, make sure you read the fine print to see any extras you may get. This is always vital for your research so you can compare the value of a package like this versus doing it yourself! It all depends on your travel style and your objectives.

They’re ready to help you find the best deal for your next upcoming holiday so you can just relax and enjoy it. You can sign up for their newsletter so you don’t miss their latest deal releases.

You can also follow them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

    1. Similar concept I guess but it works much differently. You have more control over your dates and once you purchase the deal goes through.

    Definatley a great option to research our next Holiday, thanks 🙂

  2. I find that some of the other discount websites are just too restrictive these days. You can never book the deals when you want to, or the provider has disappeared! It’s good to know there are companies like Trip A Deal around. I did an accommodation only package a few years ago with another discount company and it was all fully above board – great value, was able to book within a day or two of my chosen booking date, and booked at the same time as a friend, so we could holiday together. So there are certainly good companies out there and they deserve to be shared so we can all benefit. (I shared my positive feedback).

  3. you listed several places i want to go this year………….just a question if the prices are for airfare from OZ or the USA, shall check

  4. Great giveaway! (fingers so totally crossed, I really need a holiday). Funny, I was just looking at another discount travel site’s fine print, including “you agree to spend at least 90 minutes in an informative presentation on so-and-so adventure holidays” . . . . *squeal of brakes*

    1. Oh no! That’s Timeshare. Although, if you can withstand the 90 minutes and say no, you can get some great travel deals! We’ve done it before!! lol Good luck with the giveaway!

  5. Thanks for pointing us out this great website. We just booked, for a bargain, a 10 day trip to New York and the Niagara Falls for next year. Just 2 days after purchasing the vouchers we did receive a confirmation of our trip on the by us selected date. Too easy!

    Thanks again!

    1. That is so awesome!! So glad you grabbed a great deal. I’m sharing it with everyone. I think it’s an awesome site. My Mum’s checking it out all the time now. Enjoy the trip!

  6. I’m interested in your Caribbean dreams for next May 2016
    What is the flight duration
    And can I upgrade to business class flights
    And return back to Sydney in July from New York? Thanks

  7. Are you associated in some way with TripADeal? Your glowing praise, linked to a giveaway raises some suspicion as to genuiness.

    1. Greg, we have clearly stated in the post that it is sponsored by TripaDeal. Not sure how you missed that. I also spoke about the research I did into the company before writing anything and could not find one single bad review, only glowing ones. We were really impressed with TripADeal which is why we have written about it and shared it. It wouldn’t be published on our blog if we did not feel it wasn’t of a high standard that offered a service to help people travel more and if we did not genuinely like it. I can assure you we say no to thousands of dollars each year because the service or product is not good enough to share with our readers.

      I’ve had many people contact me thanking me for sharing TripAdeal with them as it’s saved them thousands of dollars on their dream holidays. So please no need t be suspicious. We are not in the business of acting in a scrupulous manner and being of dis-service to others.

      1. Hi Caz

        All due respect, you used the word scrupulous. You need to change it to unscrupulous as I think that is what you mean.

        Regards

        Greg

  8. We recently returned from a 20 day Taste of Italy Tour we purchased from Tripadeal. The whole trip was a shambles and near disaster except for our own negotiations to get ourselves out of the problems caused by TripADeal. On our arrival at Rome airport, after near on 20 hours of flying, we waited for 2 hours for a Tripadeal representative to greet us and transfer us to the hotel. It didn’t happen we found our own way to the hotel only to find we were not booked in under our correct names. After 30 minutes of broken english/italian discussion we worked out we had been booked in by Tripadeal under our email address??? Further into our trip of a lifetime?? we were bused to the port for our cruise, only to be refused entry because Tripadeal had not sent prearranged paperwork, another problem we had to overcome.
    Tripadeal advertise the tour group size being 2-20 people. It was, in fact, an unmanageable 51 people.
    I would not recommend Tripadeal. Based on our experience of their incompetency and lack of communication we had the holiday from hell.

    1. Wow Gloria that sounds like you had some awful disruptions. Were they the only issues? The disruption whilst annoying don’t sound like near disasters. It sounds like the accomodation and cruise was booked just a little difficult to find your booking. My experience with cruise lines is you log in to your cruise personalizer and complete all necessary information prior to travel. No travel agent we have used has ever done that for us. This also allows you to prebook shore tours.
      I agree waiting two hours was excessive.. have you followed up with trip a deal about this ? Rome airport is a nightmare to navigate.
      I hope you enjoyed the rest of your 20day holiday

  9. Did you remove my comment because it was an honest negative review of a trip with tripadeal and you were paid for this advertisement. You can remove my comments but there are a lot more sites for me to inform the public of the incompetency of tripadeal and many more sites I can write about blogs that will not let the truth get in the way of earning a buck.

    1. Hi Gloria, we didn’t remove your comment. If this is your first time commenting on our website, we have to approve your first comment, and here it is. We don’t sit in front of our computer 24/7 and I don’t think 5 hours between you posting the comment in the back end of our site and us approving it to go live is unreasonable.

      That’s too bad you had an unhappy experience, no one likes to have issues when they travel, and gee wiz we’ve had hundreds of issues over the years with various companies, both luxury and low-budget brands. And even though we’ve had a bad experience with a particular company, others are praising them. What can I say, we were clear in the post at the very top that it was sponsored, and we did as much research as possible before publishing this. Everyone should still do their own due diligence on any company or offering they are looking to engage with. I could be on the phone all day complaining to the TV station about an unhappy experience I had with a product I’ve used that was promoted in one of their ads, or constantly writing letters to the editor of a newspaper about unsatisfactory experiences.

      Let’s face it, 90% of travel is sponsored in some shape or form, whether it be promoted on TV, in newspapers or magazines, or online. My only suggestion is speak directly with the folks at TripADeal.

    robyn

  16. Just back from 2 for 1 China. What an amazing experience. Trip A Deal rocks. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and the guides, Jackie Z in Shanghai and Lily Yan in Beijing were amazing. Couldn’t fault a thing, busy the whole time and didn’t have to organise a thing. If you like to be busy and see absolutely everything, this is for you,.

  17. I did a wonderful trip through Vietnam and Cambodia with you and i am wondering if you have any trips planned for Scotland, I have not seen them advertised but thought it would be good to ask many thanks for your time Bette

  18. Query…
    If due to illness you are unable to go on trip.-a-deal holiday with Doctors certificate could it be transferred for someone to take your place.

    1. Hi Helen,

      We don’t work for TripADeal so can’t answer your question. You would need to go on their website and contact them directly.

      Thanks,
      Craig

  19. I’ve just done the 2 for l China trip,really loved it looking for another 2 for l trip value of $3000 for 2
