Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $411 flight between Pittsburgh and Montego Bay for travel in mid-March (AirTran). A three-night all-inclusive stay at the resort costs about $585 per person. Booking independently, you would expect to pay about $996 per person, all taxes included. This package costs $652 with all taxes included — a savings of $344.

More: There's a six-night version of this package available for $121 more per person.
