Deals and News
With fewer flights across the Atlantic since the September 11 attacks, planes are more crowded than ever, and fewer bargains can be found according to industry trade journals. One way to get cheaper fares is to do what savvy travelers have done for years; namely, to buy package tours that include air transport.
Starting June 17 and lasting through June 28 only, you can purchase five-night air and land packages to a veritable plethora of Caribbean islands for travel between August 15 and December 15, 2002. At the time of this writing, American Airlines and US Airways will be slashing their roundtrip fares 35% from a variety of northeast cities starting today, and Vacation Travel Mart has taken advantage of the sale to put together some nifty deals for travel later in the year.
This is one of the best deals for travel to Europe this summer, and it's brought to you by that smart outfit, Untours. This package includes roundtrip airfare on British Air from NYC, Newark or Boston, transfers, 14 days in a private apartment, comped public transportation for your stay and more for only $1,499 per person, based on double occupancy. Departures are from July 3 through August 28.
You can join in Queen Elizabeth II's year-long Golden Jubilee celebration without an over-the-ocean flight to the UK. How, you say? Head to British Columbia in Canada--a Commonwealth member--and enjoy a very Scottish pastime, golf. No longer just a rich man's sport, golf is affordable even in luxurious surroundings such as Whistler Mountain or gorgeous Vancouver Island, where Golfcan has a 7-night package costing only $1,425, including roundtrip from Los Angeles, hotel, greens fees and rental van.

Joe Egri: "Looking for first hand information about places to see beyond the usual Warsaw, Malbork, Gdansk, Torun, Poznan, Wroclaw, Zakopane. Like medieval villages, castles, monasteries, cathedrals, museums, good food and intersting places to stay. Thanks for any help."
Althea: "I would just like to say thank you for the May/June issue that included the Low-Cost Residential Cooking Schools. I was not able to find one in the issue that was convenient for me however it did lead me on a search for one that was. I was able to suprise my mother (who plans to open her own catering company) with a gift certificate from an impressive culinary school. Thank you very much."
Nattala: "We are a recently retired couple who are finally getting to see this great country of ours. We are trying to get to every corner. So far we have made it to the Northeast and Southeast. We don't like to make hotel reservations ahead of time because..."
