Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $256 round-trip flight between Orlando and Freeport for travel in late February (Spirit). A four-night stay at the hotel would cost about $640 per person. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $896 per person, including taxes.

This package costs $864 with all taxes included—a savings of about $32. It also includes hotel transfers, and you get the convenience of all-in-one booking. This package is an even better value for travelers leaving from other gateway cities. For instance, a round-trip flight between D.C. and Freeport in late February is coming up as $454 (Spirit) on Kayak—so out of D.C., there's a savings of $200 when booking this package.

More: Add nights from $138 per person per night.
