Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a round-trip fare of $949 for travel in mid-August (KLM). The four-night hotel stay would cost about $330 per person, including taxes, so if you booked independently, you would expect to pay about $1,279 per person. This package costs $1,034 with all taxes included—a savings of $245.

More: Add nights from $90 per person per night. Hotel upgrades are available; see unitedvacations.com for details.
