Travelocity offers exclusive deals and promotions on Facebook


Online travel company Travelocity has introduced a new Travel Insider tab on The Roaming Gnome’s Facebook page.



"Friends", according to the company, have now access to deals and promotions not available anywhere else. The first offer gives customers $75 off when booking a vacation package of three nights or more to California.


"There are a host of reasons why travelers become friends with The Roaming Gnome on a social network like Facebook," said Troy Whitsett, vice president design and innovation, Travelocity. "Many just want to keep up with The Roaming Gnome and his adventures, but we also know that people want access to travel deals and this is a great way to reward our fans for their loyalty."


There are other new upgrades, too.


Users are being allowed to use Travelocity's popular "Deals on a Map" feature to shop for their next vacation within the Facebook environment. Friends can access this from the "Travel Deals" tab. Once friends find a flight, hotel or vacation package and are ready to book, they will be directed to Travelocity to complete their purchase.


The company also shared that "Friends" of the Roaming Gnome can insert a personal photo into one of nine different Travelocity Roaming Gnome costumes and then share the image with their Facebook friends. Friends have the option of taking a photo with a Web cam, uploading a picture from a computer or selecting a Facebook photo.
