Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $591 round-trip flight between New York City and Munich for travel in early November (multiple airlines). The hotel costs about $445 per person, taxes included, for a six-night stay. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $1,036 per person. This deal, taxes included, is $988—a savings of $48, plus you have the convenience of all-in-one booking.

More: Add nights from $50 per person. There are other hotels available for an upgrade.
