Hotels.com offers 10% off Europe trips in dig at Man U
By Jade Mansell on Thursday, April 10, 2014
Having a dig at football fails is normally the domain of Paddy Power, but Hotels.com have come up with a great way to capitalise on Manchester United’s being knocked out of the Champions League last night.
The website is offering United fans 10 per cent off hotels in Europe so that they can experience a trip to Europe despite the prospect of staying at home next season.
Kate Hopcraft of Hotels.com said: “Manchester United fans have become accustomed to European trips, but through no fault of their own, they look set to be staying at home next season.
“Unlike David Moyes, we have a proven track record in Europe and with almost 260,000 properties around the world, we can guarantee you a trip to the continent – without the worry of having to keep an eye on the ‘fair play’ tables.”
To redeem the discount on the Hotels.com website, users should type in the discount code MANUEU10 at the checkout.
Once again simple, cheeky and topical does the trick; the story has thus far been picked up by the Daily Express.
