From the moment, I signed my retirement papers, I couldn’t stop smiling.  I’d done it!  Worked 45 year, starting right out of high school, and now had the time and the means to start working on my bucket list.  First on the list was a relaxing cruise to an exotic destination.  I’d spent years hearing coworkers vacation horror stories.  Missed connections, overbooked flights, or bait-and-switch ground transportation schemes.  I was determined to avoid all that.  Fortunately, I am a Groupon shopper and found the perfect solution to my travel needs.  I booked my trip through Apple Vacations, and it was the smartest move I’d made all year.

Apple Vacations offered round-trip transfers between my destination airport and hotel – at no additional cost.  The all-inclusive resort was a first for me and I had a ball.  I could spend my time lounging poolside, take part in the morning exercises, or just have a meal in one of the many restaurants while watching the sun set into the ocean.  Everything was included in the price, and that was even reduced by using a Groupon code that saved me lots of money on the deal. You can save $375 off resort and spa packages.  When you book with Apple Vacations you can relax knowing that your accommodations are first rate, the staff is friendly and attentive, and you are made to feel welcomed right away.  I’ve heard plenty of horror stories about being stranded at the airport, or shuttles taking an hour to make a trip to a hotel 20 minutes away.  You don’t want to take that ride when you’re feeling ill.

Another thing I love about Apple Vacations is that they offer non-stop flights to my destination.  That’s one of the things they are known for.  When you book your flight, you’ll see that they are sometimes the only non-stop choice for that destination.  If there’s anything I hate, it’s having a long lay-over with nothing to do and nowhere to go.  I could be spending that time at the beach with a yummy drink in my hand.  I’ve been so impressed with Apple Vacations and Groupon I’ve told lots of people about it, too.  Since then, one of my friends has booked her destination wedding through Apple Vacations, because they will arrange everything she needs for her wedding for free.  All her guests must do is get there.  And I’ve told them all to make sure they use Groupon so they can get there for less.
