Using the tool, people can access lists of TripAdvisor's top-rated destinations and area attractions, as well as Expedia.com's highest-ranked hotels that are a specified driving distance from thousands of origination cities worldwide. The tool marks the first time TripAdvisor destination content is available on Expedia.com.

"This summer, many travelers are stretching their vacation dollars by looking for value closer to home," said Tim MacDonald, general manager of Expedia.com. "The combination of our Drive Getaway tool, the thousands of deals running in our Biggest Hotel Sale Ever, and our new pre-paid gas card offer is a terrific example of the unmatched value Expedia.com provides travelers looking for easy and affordable trips this summer."

In order to narrow destination options, the Drive Getaway tool allows users to filter results for each starting city by offering three "trip length" choices: full tank (151-300 miles), half tank (76-150 miles) or quarter tank (0-75 miles). In addition to the recommendations, the tool also provides TripAdvisor user-generated photos of destinations and attractions.
