The deal
Rounding up the troops to take a family vacation can be quite the task, but now, DirectAir is making family travel a bit less hectic and a lot more affordable − just in time for summer.

The airline’s Family Ties sale allows up to 20 passengers to fly with open-ended flight certificates for a flat rate of $149 round-trip – including taxes.

In fact, the certificates are so flexible that you don’t even have to assign passenger names until the time of booking.

So if Aunt Peggy is “on the fence” about going, or cousin Matt isn’t sure if he can get the time off of work, their tickets can be transferred to another family member (who made the “backup” list) at no additional charge.

Perhaps the best part about this deal is that certificates are valid for non-stop flights anytime (no blackout dates apply) from May 1, 2010 through April 30, 2011 — allowing plenty of time to plan your trip.

Flights are available to vacation hot spots like Fort Myers, Melbourne, Orlando, and Myrtle Beach from 13 cities, but this sale ends April 4.

The dollars
Fares are round-trip and included taxes. Baggage fees of $20 per bag apply.

The catch
DirectAir has a limited route network, and some flights are not available for daily departures.
