Booking Trips After Holidays Brings Savings

With Presidents Day passed, now is a great time to be on the lookout for aggressive discounts on hotels, vacation packages, cruises and entertainment offers.

Travelzoo’s deal experts have found that prices drop immediately after a national holiday as people return to work and kids are back in classrooms. It’s a time when most people aren’t thinking about vacation, so the best way to get attention is to launch new sales and further deepen discounts.  

For those who didn’t get away last weekend -- or those who need another escape -- here are some of the latest offers:

  • Las Vegas: Suites at the 5-star Trump International Hotel Las Vegas have been discounted by 45% for stays into June, including over some weekend dates. And guests staying at an all-suite property receive $70 in extras -- for $59 per night.
  • Cancun: Apple Vacations has cut the price of weeklong trips to an upscale Playa del Carmen from Cleveland for departures in May. These offers are more than $400 off the price of purchasing components of this vacation separately.
  • Wine Country: A champagne breakfast, an upgraded room, tasting passes and more await guests at The Napa Valley Lodge in tony Yountville at half off current rates.   
  • Costa Rica: Whisk away on a four-night escape to the 5-star, adults-only Gaia Hotel & Reserve, a boutique hotel nestled on a 13-acre private nature reserve in Manuel Antonio.
