ORLANDO, Fla., 2023-May-02 — /Travel PR News/ — Extra Holidays, a booking site offering condo vacations at hotel prices, invites families to close the book on school year stress and take a “Bookcation” this summer. Available at 10 resorts across the U.S. and its territories, travelers receive a discount of 20% off select accommodations and a book-lover’s gift basket. Travelers who sign up for the free Insider Extras instant rewards program at time of booking will also receive a $25 Amazon digital gift card redeemable for millions of books, eBooks and Audible audio books.

Launching today with travel by dates between now and August 31, 2023, the Extra Holidays “Bookcation” package encourages busy families to spend time reading together – or even to start chipping away at those summer reading lists.

The promotion includes a 20% discount on qualifying accommodations at the following resorts:

  • Margaritaville Vacation Club St. Thomas – U.S. Virgin Islands

“The end of school can be a stressful time for families, which makes the thought of a summer getaway even sweeter,” said Heena Patel, Sr. Vice President, Global Rental Operations, Travel + Leisure Co. “No matter your age, vacation provides the perfect opportunity to unplug, relax and pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read for months. Unlike a standard hotel room, condo vacation accommodations feature multiple bedrooms and separate living space, providing enough room for everyone in the family to spread out and enjoy a little quiet time while they read.”
