Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $760 multicity fare (D.C. to Berlin, Prague to D.C.) for a September 9 departure (Delta). For the same travel dates, a rail transfer on the ICE high-speed train starts at $100 per person. For just $145 more, this package covers the airfare and the rail transfer, plus six nights' accommodations, breakfast daily, and all taxes and fees.

More: Extend your stay at the Leonardo in Berlin for an additional $38 per person per night or at the Duo in Prague for an additional $43 per person per night, based on double occupancy. More than 100 different hotel upgrades are available in each city.
