Why it’s a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $239 round-trip flight for travel between New York City and Miami in mid-December (Continental). A three-night stay at the hotel costs about $212 per person. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $451, including all taxes. This package costs $350 per person, including all taxes — a savings of $101.

More: Add nights from $71 per person per night.
