Expedia wants to take WFH on the road, and is selling trips for only $20.20 to inspire a few lucky people to trade their couch for a beach chair.
Starting Monday at 8:20 p.m. EST (or 20:20), two-week stays at an Expedia VIP Access Property will go on sale, on a first come first serve basis as s part of their “Work From Here” initiative.
The trips, are for travel in April, and will be offered to the first six people who book.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has forced an unprecedented shift in how and where many workers complete their daily ‘9-5’. Working at home for an extended period has compounded the desire to explore new places, take in sites and scenery, and experience something new,” Nisreene Atassi, the senior director, communications at Expedia, told Travel + Leisure of the sale. “Built on the wanderer mindset of today’s work from anywhere professionals, ‘Work From Here’ celebrates a new global culture that allows employees the freedom to balance work with travel.”
“When we can travel freely again, we want to inspire workers to think differently about their workspace to create happier, more productive experiences, which would benefit not only employees but also employers,” Atassi added.
