$35 Off your Hotel Stay
Travel Pony is a newer site that’s trying to get a name for itself through referrals. Currently they are giving a $35 credit to anyone who signs up if they are referred by an existing member. If you sign up your friends you can get $25 for each one. Your friends need to spend one night at a hotel booked on Travel Pony for you to get the $25. If you manage to get a couple of friends to sign up you might even get a free hotel night.
Travel Pony does not have a broad a selection of hotels and tends to focus on urban areas. It does however offer deeper discounts on some properties with comparisons to other leading sites. I did a quick compare and they managed to beat Kayak on a couple of properties. In at least one case the difference was quite a bit. The price for other hotels was about the same or worse. I’m certainly going to add them to the list of sites I refer to when looking for an interesting deal.
One thing to note – because they are a members only site you can’t get a Best Rate Guarantee from any hotel based on the price that Travel Pony offers. You probably won’t be able to collect hotel reward points either but that shouldn’t matter with a deep discount.
There have been a few similar offers from start-ups which have good initial referral offers that soon taper off. Hopefully they keep this one going for a while. At the best this will be another great resource for finding good hotel deals. At worst you can get a nice discount for one of your stays.
If you’re looking for a referral to get you started you can use mine and then start referring your friends to Travel Pony.
