jetsetter-screenshotGilt Groupe is finally launching Jetsetter — a new sample sale site for luxury travel.

The official launch date is Wednesday, September 30 with a sale for travel to a South American ranch in Uruguay. In the meantime, if you’re a Gilt Groupe member, check to see if you have access to the test-user beta.

Currently on sale:

  • New York Hotel on Rivington – from $249/night
  • Encentado Resort, New Mexico – from $185/night
  • Paws Up Ranch, Montana – from $189/night

Coming Soon:

  • Ranch in Uruguay
  • The Bauer in Venice, Italy
  • The Cotton House on the Isle of Mustique
  • The Peninsula in New York City
  • Seabourn Yacht

I did a few comparisons and it looks like some of these resorts are about 30-40% off typical Expedia prices. If you’re in the market for a 4 star hotel or a swanky vacation definitely check it out. Not really my typical vacation budget or style, but I’ll still keep my eye on it for special occasions. Reminder: Your Gilt Groupe account will automatically give you access to the site on the launch day. If you don’t have a Gilt Groupe account, get one here.
