A Little Bit About Upside
For those not aware, Upside is a travel booking site that will save you and your company money on travel packages while also receiving rewards every time you book! I personally used Upside this past Fall and had a great experience. Their site is very user friendly and the customer service you receive is phenomenal. From what I saw, flights are also the exact same price as if you were to book them directly through the airline. Although Upside told me that there might some routes where you are able to receive special pricing due to partner agreements, so there is the chance you could actually save some money as well! While I haven’t personally searched through their partner hotels, Upside does have some partner pricing at some participating properties, so you might actually find a better price for your hotel stay. Also, Upside has special agreements with some partners which will allow you to earn points at their property even though you are booking through a third-party site – look for those marked with “plus points”. You can read more about my experience here.
The travel site Upside is also currently offering a $100 gift card if you spend $600+ on your next business trip through the site (new customers only). Just use the promotion code DEALSWELIKE.
