5 sites where you can buy travel voucher deals now and book them later

Don’t let that travel deal slip away just because you’re not sure when you can go.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

These sites let you lock in a travel deal by purchasing a voucher for it that you can redeem at a later date.

If you're waiting for your employer to approve your annual leave or unsure of exactly when you can go, you'll have time to sort out your holiday plans without losing out on the deal.

While the terms of each offer are different, you will usually have anywhere from a few weeks to a few months from the date of purchase to decide on your actual check-in dates offering the flexibility you may need.

2. Luxury Escapes

Select the "Buy now book later" option and your upscale getaway can be purchased as a voucher to use at a later date. Even better? Luxury Escapes offers a seven-day change of mind refund and the option to book now and pay later. You'll also earn 1 Qantas Point for every $1 spent on site.

  • Can you check availability before purchasing the voucher? Yes. Look for the green "Check Availability" button in the "Package options" section. It should be just above text that says "Buy now book later".
