Why it's a deal: A recent Kayak search produced a $1,067 round-trip flight for travel in early February (Air France). The hotels in this package cost about $1,500 per person including taxes. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $2,567 per person for room and board. This package costs $1,906 with all taxes included—a savings of $661—plus it includes transfers and a ferry between Tahiti and Moorea.
More: Add nights in Moorea from $185 per person per night.
