Hotwire is Giving Away Summer Full of 5-Star Hotel Stays Worth $15,000

Discount travel site Hotwire has just launched its brand-new ‘Five-Star Summer’ sweepstakes contest, which will upgrade one lucky winner’s next vacation from just “meh” to totally magnificent. One travel-ready American will be treated to a summer season filled with fancy, five-star hotel stays in destinations of their choice, worth up to $15,000.

More and more would-be travelers are getting fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and, after a year hunkered down at home or settling for local staycations, couldn’t be more ready to pack their bags for their first post-pandemic “vaxxication”. Hotwire decided that now was the perfect time to give away a five-star summer, since American optimism surrounding the return of travel has hit a pandemic-era high.


In fact, according to Destination Analysts’ research, 72 percent of U.S. adults reported being in a “ready-to-travel mindset” as of mid-April—an increase of 20 percent over January’s numbers. Its studies also showed that three-quarters of American travelers have been actively planning and booking upcoming travel, with 75 percent set to take at least one trip over the next three months.
