Posted on March 03, 2011

Those of us that are still suffering through winter (yes, some of us really are) may be daydreaming of nothing other than vacationing in a warm and sunny destination. For anyone that can't seem to get frozen drinks, sunshine, beaches and 80-degree weather out of your head, there are some great travel deals going on to help you get the relaxation you need without the guilt of over-spending.


Discount travel site, CheapOAir, has a few coupons including $10 off international and domestic flights or $50 off with a 4-person flight reservation.

Be sure to keep your eye on JetBlue deals as they frequently have 1-way fares for as little as $29.


Book by 4/4, and takes up to 30% off during their Spring Sale. The discount as well as taxes and fees will be based on the property you choose. Some blackout dates may apply.

Holiday Inn offers 15%-20% off when you book in advance. You must book your stay at least 14 days in advance to qualify for these rates. Many people book this far in advance just as part of planning for a trip, but most don't realize you can qualify for a discounted rate by doing so.

Car Rentals:

Dollar Rent-A-Car offers up to 12% off rentals via code chep (all lowercase) when booking. Rates will vary by day and by pickup/dropoff locations.

Budget Rent-A-Car takes up to 30% off with code U072411 when booking. As with other car rental sites, rates and fees may vary.

Vacation Packages:

Southwest Vacations now has several online travel coupons including a coupon for up to $125 off a Vegas Vacation. For those of you still embracing the cold, they also have a code for $75 off Colorado Ski packages.

By booking a 12-night Mediterranean Barcelona Cruise using your American Express card, Travelocity gives you up to a $500 in on-board credit. Another plus is that your AMEX card can get you up to 15% off on off-shore excursions.

Orbitz has several online coupons, like code 100VACATION, which takes $100 off Mexico, Caribbean or Hawaii vacations or $300 off a Bahamas vacation via code 300BAHAMAS6 when booking.


Luggage Guy takes 30% off all items, exclusively for BradsDeals readers, via code BRADSLG at checkout. This Pierre Cardin Royale 3-Piece Set drops from $240 to $118.96 after the code, a total of 48% off.

You'll have a much more relaxing time knowing that you didn't overspend for your vacation. Take the time to plan it out and make sure you're getting all the deals you can. Although you may not take a $40,000 vacation for under $2,000, you could still end up saving enough to add a few extra days to your trip, which will be completely worth the extra research.
