SEATTLE, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of "Embrace Your Inner Geek Day," today Hotwire.com® launched a campaign to determine the ultimate "Anytime Bag" for travel geeks. The online travel company is asking U.S. travelers to help determine the best items to include in a pre-packed bag for spontaneous weekend getaways and last minute trips to see family and friends.
"In today's highly mobile and digital travel booking landscape, you need to be ready to go at a moment's notice," says Hotwire® Travel Editor Carrie Peters. "It's about jumping in the car to follow your favorite band to their next tour stop or booking a beachside hotel on Wednesday to take advantage of big waves on Friday. An Anytime Bag helps make sure you don't miss any of those spontaneous, 'slightly adventurous' travel moments."
Suggestions for the ultimate Anytime Bag must be submitted as a response post to Hotwire using the hashtag #AnytimeBag and #sweepstakes on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram between 12:01 a.m. on July 13 and 11:59 p.m. on July 15. Hotwire will share their selections for the ultimate Anytime Bag on July 18 and select two winners, each of whom will receive an actual travel bag filled with the best suggestions. (No purchase necessary. Open to U.S. residents 18 and older.)
In conjunction with the Embrace Your Inner Geek Day and the #AnytimeBag campaign, Hotwire is offering a travel coupon for $15 off $150 on Hot Rate® Hotel bookings. Customers can redeem the coupon anytime between July 13 and July 15 by entering the promotional code "TRAVELGEEK15" when they purchase through Hotwire.
