How to book a luxury holiday while on a budget

EVERYONE loves saving money, especially thousands of dollars on a luxury holiday. There are plenty of online travel sites where you can book hotel rooms, flights and transfers.

In recent times, online coupon companies, such as www.groupon.com.au and www.cudo.com.au have come to the party by offering weekends away, deals on restaurants and transport. Online coupons are essentially online versions of traditional paper coupons.   

More recently, online buying clubs, such as www.buyinvite.com.au and www.brandsexclusive.com.au have taken to marketing holidays in exotic locations.   

A relative newcomer to the scene is www.luxuryescapes.com, an online travel company that packages up high-end travel experiences and has been promoting a range of packages from romantic resorts in Tasmania to family holidays in Bali, since last August.    

LuxuryEscapes.com is part of the Aussie Commerce Group, the parent company of online sales websites such as Cudo, DEALS.com.au, Ouffer.com, TheHome.com.au, Pop.com.au and The Meat Merchant.   

The aim of the brand is to offer Australians an online travel retailer that delivers quality national and international accommodation and holiday packages at an irresistible price. Some of the packages have extras like pampering spa treatments, local food market tours, cooking classes and romantic dinners. 

Here is a resort that was recently featured in a LuxuryEscapes.com deal
