Recognizing the desire by many families to stick within the confines of the US, Canada and the Caribbean for vacations this summer, the Radisson chain has devised a "Go Package" it thinks will entice many. The prices range from about $210 per night and up for a couple -- in some instances for a family of four.
Whether you like to fly through the air, surf through cyberspace, or do both at the same time, Lufthansa's got something for you this week: the German national airline is offering a pretty good fare sale and a downright terrific offer of free Internet access overseas.
The Baymont Inns & Suites group has slashed its prices in participating Florida and Georgia properties to as little as $45 a night, but you must stay two consecutive nights to get the deal, which works out to as little as $89 per room, plus tax.
Last week, we wrote a column on European train fares where we said that "bizarrely, tickets from Brussels to Paris aren't on sale." Someone must have been listening, because on Thursday, Rail Europe announced a sale on Thalys tickets. Thalys is the high-speed train that connects Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and K¿ln, Germany. A cherry-red rocket, Thalys covers the 190 miles from Paris to Brussels in a cool 85 minutes.

From Brian Kastner: "I told myself that I would not try to buy insurance for my frequent flier miles with Northwest Airlines until I heard about specific talks about them filing for Chapter 11. Our local news station in Detroit had a story that Northwest is considering bankruptcy today. I went to The Privilege Flier web site only to find that they are suspending the "Award Guard Insurance" (at least for now) for new members. Anyone know of any other insurance plan to protect frequent flier miles?"
From Barbara Kegel: "What advice does anyone have for a 60-ish traveler who would also like to spend the summer in Europe but isn't into backpacking & can't afford expensive accommodations. Is there any way to make this possible other than sleeping in a tent or sharing a room with a dozen others? Recommendations will be most appreciated. Are there any "older" travelers out there who have spent considerable time in Europe & who are not wealthy?"
From ca-us: "We are planning to visit Aus, NZ and Fiji in July and Aug this summer. We are Asian American, should we worry about local discrimination against us? We have visited quite a few travel web sites, and are alarmed at the rate of the negative comments being posted. We sure do not want to spend our hard earn dollars where we don't felt like we are welcome."
From Dasherman: "I live 20 miles from the centre of the SARS scare. This is a serious illness and from my view those who are ill are confined to hospital or home. Life all around is normal. Reasonable care in all public places would be the same as trying to stay clear of a cold. Washing hands, stay away from other sick people. Having said that, there is a tremendous opportunity for travellers to take advantage of the bad local news."
From Sallee: "I am going to Cuba for the second time. On my first trip I stayed mainly in Havana but made short trips to Maria la Gorda and Trinadad. Maria la Gorda was remote and really beautifull as was the drive and diving there. This time I am going to Havana again for a shorter time and was wondering if I should make a trip to Santiago de Cuba."
