Top Five Bargain Destinations for Fall 2010

Here’s a secret: If you’re looking for a great vacation at a great price, there’s a good chance fall is the best time to go. In many destinations, you’ll find better weather than in winter or spring, and you’ll beat the high prices and crowds of summer.

I’ve monitored trends, industry news, and sale patterns to point you in the direction of places that offer the best bargains for the coming season. Below you’ll find examples of deals presently available for fall trips. Like all deals, these are sure to expire; however, a little research on your part can yield similar results when you’re ready to book.


Early fall is Orlando’s slowest travel time, and that means bargains that simply aren’t around the rest of the year. Factor in new air service and hotel deals galore, and Orlando turns out to be a standout spot for travelers looking for good deals and plenty of fun this fall.

Virgin America debuts nonstop service from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Orlando on October 6, with rates from $139 each way. On the air-and-hotel front, United Vacations is offering either free Disney Dining or 46 percent off Walt Disney World vacations of three nights or more on select dates in October, November, and December. With the recent increase in Disney World admission prices, discounts are even more useful for keeping costs down.{{{SmarterBuddy|align=left}}}

Some hotels are cutting room rates as well. CheapOair recently reported Orlando hotel rates from $42 for late September stays, and Coco Key Resort is offering September nightly rates from $89.
