Can I share my membership with family or friends?

Membership is individual and non-transferable, but you can book deals for others to enjoy together.

How can I cancel my membership?

You can cancel the auto-renewal of your membership in My Account online or by contacting our customer service. The membership will then expire at the end of your 12-month membership period. Once you have paid, assuming you have not requested a refund, you will continue to have access to all the benefits of the club until the end of the membership term.

How does my membership renew?

Automatically each year, with the option to cancel auto-renewal by adjusting your account settings or contacting customer service.

What types of deals can I expect?

We offer a wide range of high quality, exclusive offers for your travel and entertainment needs, including high-end hotel stays, cruises, flights, vacation packages, dining, entertainment and other local activities globally. Our team of deal experts spend hours negotiating and researching our offers to ensure that they meet our rigorous quality standards. We would not publish a deal that we would not book ourselves.

How often are new deals posted?

Our weekly Top 20® goes live every Wednesday morning. However, we frequently update our site with new deals throughout the week. For the most exceptional offers, we will directly alert you via email, ensuring you never miss out and are the first to know (as some can sell out quickly!).

How does Travelzoo ensure the quality of its deals?

Our team of deal experts, as well as our unique Test Booking Center®, rigorously research and check every single deal that we offer. We thoroughly vet our deals by checking prices, availability, reviews, competitor prices, and perks and will only recommend a deal that clearly beats everything else in the market.

Are the prices advertised on Travelzoo real?

Yes, the prices you see on Travelzoo are real, even though some deals might seem too good to be true. We pride ourselves on transparency and collaborate directly with our partners to secure exclusive rates for our members. All it takes from your side is a bit of flexibility regarding travel dates or destinations, and you can indeed catch your next trip with amazing savings.

What payment method can I use?

We accept all major credit cards.

Does Travelzoo have offers for families?

We frequently feature family-friendly deals, but we focus on offers suitable for two adults or groups of adults. We strive to include diverse options when available and recommend reviewing deal details for family suitability.

Does Travelzoo have offers for solo travelers?

Many of our hotel deals are based on double room occupancy, meaning solo travelers would pay the same price as two adults. However, we are always on the lookout for special deals that cater specifically to solo travelers, such as single occupancy rates with better value or packages designed for solo adventures. When these specific options are available, we make sure to highlight them for our solo travelers.

Why do I have to pay a membership fee when you already receive a commission from travel agencies and hotels?

At Travelzoo, our commitment has always been to our members first, ensuring they have access to high-quality travel opportunities at outstanding prices. Traditionally, we've received a fixed fee or commission for promoting deals, but every deal is meticulously evaluated against our strict criteria for quality and value—only the best offers make the cut. Charging a membership fee supports our goal of enhancing our independence and objectivity, allowing us to focus even more on the needs and interests of our members rather than advertisers. We are able to negotiate more exclusive offers with luxury hotels and travel companies that either want a closed user group or where we do not make any commissions and can then pass those savings onto you. This shift is part of our vision to strengthen the relationship we have with you, our members, and to ultimately provide even better discounts and exclusive offers. By investing in a membership, you're not just buying access to deals; you're supporting a platform that prioritizes your travel experience above all, ensuring that we can continue to negotiate the best possible opportunities on your behalf.
