First Impressions: Jetsetter

The Pitch

Jetsetter is a private online community that provides members with insider access, expert knowledge, and exclusive deals on the world’s greatest vacations. All of the properties we feature are hand-selected by our team of globe-trotting correspondents, and sales last five to seven days. Our philosophy is that travel should be fun and easy — and that includes the planning part.

I’ve been a member of Jetsetter for a little more than a month now and the first thing I need to comment on is the absolutely amazing photography. Don’t get me wrong the deals on the locations are fantastic but something needs to said for the effort put into making this an extremely beautiful travel site. The images of the locations are so inviting that I immediately want to book a flight just so I can take advantage of their hotel deals. While some travel sites give you stock photography of the hotel or outdated images from the 80s depicting a happy couple by the pool or beach, Jetsetter seems to take the extra step to provide high quality images to convey class and prestige. Of course this makes perfect sense since the company behind Jetsetter is the GILT GROUPE which deals in luxury and high fashioned items.

The locations featured on Jetsetter are hand selected and you’ll find many great deals for locations all over the world. Each deal will give you several room options showing you the Jetsetter rate compared to the rate found on the hotel website. For example there currently is a deal for the Evason Phuket & Six Senses Spa located in Phuket, Thialand. The most expensive option is the Deluxe Pool Spa suite from $225/night compared to the hotel website price of $467/night for the exact same room. Opting for the least expensive room would run from $60/night compared to the hotel’s $169/night.

As mentioned I was invited to join Jetsetter right before December in which I quickly found deals on locations in California, Arizona and New York. We wanted to take advantage of these deals since I took most of my vacation time in December but unfortunately we already had a vacation planned throughout the month so we could not take advantage of the deals found. I can’t wait to book through Jetsetter because the locations and prices are great. Not to mention every time I log into the site I get to explore some fantastic locations which I can make note of for future vacations.

You can put in a request to join at or if you’d like to earn $25 on sign up you can use my Personal Invitation Link, I only receive $25 when you book your first trip.
Bonus: Once you become a member of Jetsetter you get access to the GILT family of sites.

Jetsetter is in the running for a Crunchie Award in the Best Social Commerce App category, show them some love!
