Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $341 round-trip flight between San Antonio and Las Vegas for travel in mid-July, including taxes. For just $22 more, this package includes the round-trip flight, plus three nights' accommodations and all taxes and fees.

More: Add nights at Bally's from $54 per room per night. This package also includes some nice upgrade options for stays in Las Vegas; rates will depend on booking dates and the hotel selected. Choose from Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah's Las Vegas, Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
