Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $573 round-trip flight between Boston and Lisbon in mid-March (British Airways). For $616 more, this package covers the airfare, plus six nights' accommodations, breakfast daily, and all taxes and fees.

More: Children under 6 pay only their airfare, and children under 10 years pay 10 percent of the hotel rate, plus airfare. You can extend your stay at the Hotel Açores Lisboa for an additional $150 per person per night, based on double occupancy. You can upgrade to the Hotel Mundial for an additional $30 per person or to the Tivoli Jardim for an additional $370 per person, based on double occupancy.
