At there are about 30 offers with discounts between 20 and 80 percent. At about 40 offers with similar discounts (25 to 75 percent). Both providers mainly have city breaks or short breaks in the program. Man buys coupons.

Stiftung Warentest says: Partly really cheap, but not always. Therefore, before buying necessarily compare prices! The vouchers make both portals particularly interesting for flexible vacationers.

You must pay attention to this:

1. Compare the prices - check again and again on another portal.

2. Do not be fooled, relax behind "two days" is only one night.

3. Ask before the voucher purchase directly from the provider for free appointments.

4. Pay attention to hidden costs for cleaning, flight surcharges or shipping costs.

5. Right of withdrawal: The right of withdrawal applies to vouchers, not for travel .

6. Pay only on pages online if the internet address begins with an "https". Otherwise, if possible, pay by invoice or direct debit instead of credit card.

7. EXTRA TIP: A new judgment of the European Court of Justice strengthens the rights of passengers. If a flight is more than three hours late, it can now go up to 600 euros.
