Dépèche transmise le 24 avril 2009 par Business Wire

NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Want a Mothers Day gift that isn’t expensive, but looks like it cost a lot? Priceline.com (Nasdaq: PCLN) suggests that you consider giving the gift of travel. 2009 is the year of the travel bargain, with 3-star hotel rooms in major cities available for as little as $50 a night, 7-night air & hotel vacation packages for as little as $435 a person, and cruises for under $40 a day per person.

Take Mom back to her favorite vacation destination. Treat her to a shopping and theater splurge weekend in the Big Apple. Give her some early summer sun in Florida or San Diego. Or, if you haven’t visited in awhile, you can fly home to celebrate her special day.
