But before you start bargaining away, you should probably have an idea of how to navigate around the site and what all the different tabs offer you. First things first. As soon as you get to the main Groupon page, make sure to click on Getaways, the fourth menu item on the top.

Travel by Interest:
This section is quite unique. In this part of the getaway tab, you can decide your vacation based on what you like to do. So whether you’re an adventurous backpacker or a fan of the beach, there’s discounted trips for everyone! Here are a few of the different types of trips Groupon has broken down for you based on interest:
In this section of the Groupon travel deals, you can check out all types of beach trips around the entire world - whether it’s right down in Florida or all the way in the Caribbean. What’s really cool is Groupon even has different beach trips based on who you’re traveling with. So, if you’re going with your family, they have “kid-friendly” resorts. And if you’re off on a honeymoon with your love, they’ve got “intimate” resorts as well. *wink wink*
If you’re all about the skiing, ice skating, and building snowmen, Groupon has an entire section just for winter getaways where you can relish in the winter season, rather than escape to the warm beaches. Many of these deals are at well-renowned ski resorts in Colorado, or scenic coastal hotels by Lake Tahoe. So enjoy the snow and beautiful winters at these destinations!
Some of us are all about playing all the slot machines in the world and just gambling the night away in exquisite casinos. And guess what – Groupon has deals for you, too! In this section of the Groupon travel deals, you can find discounted trips to different casinos all across the world. So get your loose cash and competition ready for the slot machines, everyone!
If you’re into backpacking or hiking, this is the category for you. This section gives you vacation deals where you can enjoy nature at its finest. Most of the deals would allow you to check out beautiful, scenic locations, such as Niagara Falls or the mountain ranges in New Mexico.
