40% Off More Than 5,400 Hotels Nationwide

With summer right around the corner and airfare still skyrocketing, perhaps the open road is calling you instead? Now you can answer it by planning a vacation that explores the heart of your own backyard with Expedia’s Summer Vacation Sale, which offers up to 40 percent off hotels all over the country.  This deal is the perfect accompaniment to a road trip, because you can book your lodging in advance and therefore be able to stay within your budget.

The promotion features more than 5,400 U.S. hotels starting at $15 per night (without taxes and fees), and offers savings in big cities, as well as lesser-known destinations, i.e. the places you might encounter on an off-the-beaten path adventure. For instance, rooms start at $92 per night (without taxes and fees) in Burlington, Vermont, where it’s just a short drive to the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory.

You must book by June 29, 2010, for travel before July 31.

The offer varies by property, and a minimum stay may be required. Plus, discounts are subject to availability and blackout dates may apply.
