The Real Deal: Round-trip airfare on American Airlines, four nights at the Hilton Montreal Bonaventure, fuel surcharges, and hotel taxes, from $549 per person — plus about $72 in airport taxes.

When: Through April 30, 2010.

Gateways: New York City; add $20 for D.C.; $29 for Dallas; $37 for Chicago; $38 for Miami; additional gateways available.

The fine print: Does not include about $72 in airport taxes per person. Based on double occupancy; single supplement is $317. The starting rate is based on a March 11, 2010, departure; other travel dates might be slightly more expensive. Read these guidelines before you book any Real Deal.

Book by: Feb. 28, 2010.

Contact: American Airlines Vacations, 800/321-2121, aavacations.com.

Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $375 flight between New York City and Montreal for travel in mid-March (Porter Airlines). A four-night stay at the hotel costs about $300 per person. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $675 per person. This package costs $621 per person including all taxes — a savings of $54.

More: Add nights from $211 per room per night, based on single or double occupancy.
