DubLi Survey Finds Holiday Travelers Prefer Deals and Cashback Over Loyalty Points

70 Percent Will Consider Flexible Travel Dates in Order to Save Money

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2015) -  DubLi, a leader in global Cashback shopping, today released the second series of findings from its global holiday travel survey. Conducted from July 23 to 31 and sent to over 1 million customers around the world, the survey found that more than two-thirds of respondents intend to travel this holiday season and nearly 70 percent of respondents would consider flexible travel dates in order to save money.

The majority of travelers also plan to cut reservation costs by using deals found on travel websites. When asked what would entice them to travel more, a majority of respondents said that a better selection of online deals would be the most attractive incentive.

The DubLi holiday travel survey shows that hotel and flight deals are more attractive to people planning their vacation than loyalty points. While a minority of U.S. respondents -- 41% -- intend to utilize loyalty programs involving miles or points, 51% look to deals and airfare incentives when finalizing their holiday travel plans. And 51% of global respondents said that they prefer Cashback savings.

"One of the more stressful aspects of planning for the holidays is finding affordable travel options," said Michael Hansen, DubLi Founder. "Using DubLi.com's shopping and travel portal, consumers can effectively stack savings and Cashback with an assortment of global coupons and promotions to gain an edge. This offers an easy way for our consumers to save during the holidays as they shop at their favorite online travel websites, such as Hotwire, Expedia and Booking.com."

The majority of travelers surveyed by DubLi book their holiday itineraries from three to six months in advance, and studies show that booking in August is an ideal time to maximize holiday travel savings.
