Introducing Travelocity’s Top Secret Hotels
Imagine you’re planning a trip with your best friend/sweetie/cousin/pen-pal and you’re on a limited budget. You know the city you want to go to, but don’t particularly care where you stay as long as it’s nice. So where to go to make your booking? Now you go to Travelocity, which is introducing the perfect, easy hotel solution for your scenario: Top Secret Hotels.
Unlike other “opaque” booking sites (i.e. sites that don’t tell you the hotel name until after you book), Travelocity’s Top Secret Hotels gives you all the details on your hotel upfront—except for the hotel name (after all, something’s gotta remain a secret). You’ll know how many stars the hotel will have, what amenities it offers, and—most importantly—exactly how much the hotel will cost you. All upfront. There is no bidding and no hassle (see how relaxed the Travelocity Roaming Gnome looks in that picture? That could be YOU, booking a Top Secret Hotel). And, as soon as you book your hotel, the secret of the hotel’s name is revealed. So you’re not really held in suspense for all that long.
Since the rates Travelocity is offering are unpublished, they represent some of the most incredible steals out there. And the savings can be huge: up to 45% on three- and four-star hotels! Plus, even though sales of all Top Secret Hotels are final, all Top Secret Hotels bookings are backed by the Travelocity Service Guarantee, which means that your booking will be right, or Travelocity will work with its partners to make it right, right away.

My name: Rachel Berg.
Favorite way to get around: By Venetian gondola during starlit high tide, gliding past decaying and slightly spooky palaces, with perhaps a bottle of prosecco placed between the gondola seat cushions.
View that took my breath away: Unable to sleep in the mystical city of Sfat in Israel, I wandered outdoors predawn and was treated to a purple-on-purple sunrise below the mountaintop that seemed to emerge feet-first through ground-level clouds.
Greatest travel lesson learned: Sunny weather isn't everything. Some of my best travel memories involve go-karting through a deluge turned mud-fest in Mexico, drinking tea in the cold Denali tundra, and watching electric thunderstorms roll through national parks out West.
Most challenging travel moment: Getting leveled by altitude sickness in Cuzco and realizing that my body was forcing me to slow down and rest despite the fact that there was so much to do and see.
Travel ambition: To see the northern lights.
