Great Travel Deals - Travel Zoo is a great place to get deals on anything from vacation packages, airfare, hotels, car rentals and cruises to local entertainment and more. 

Vacation packages are great because most things are included and you don't need to find hotels (anywhere from 3 to 5 star hotels) or flights on your own.

Travelzoo has a Top 20 Section that it is great to check daily, you never know what type of deal might be available.  They also have today's top deals on their homepage.

If you decide last minute to go on vacation they have a Last Minute Section where you can often get even better deals if you aren't picky about where you want to go.  Many of the deals go fast so you usually have to act quickly.

For example: I just saw a vacation package to Italy for 9 nights including airfare and transportation between three cities (Venice, Florence and Rome) for $999 a person plus taxes ($80 a person).  Keep in mind that they try to get you to pay for supplemental travel insurance and many credit cards automatically cover this.  You should do your research about your particular credit card and decide whether you want to include this insurance.

You can sign up for their newsletter (on the homepage) and you can find out the latest deals in your email box.  They have over 24 million subscribers so they must be doing something right.
