It’s that time of winter when the skies are gray, it’s cold and gross out, and you’re ready to get away. If you haven’t made plans yet for spring break, here’s a good reason to do it now: You can save a ton when you reserve a vacation with Southwest.
When you book a vacation, a great way to save money is by booking your flight and your hotel at the same time by creating your own “vacation package.” Vacation packages are bundles you can get from most online travel agencies or airline websites. When you bundle some combination of travel — usually airfare and prepaid hotel stays, as well as optional rental cars or activities — you can get a discount.
Southwest Airlines has a solid in-house program — conveniently called “Southwest Vacations” — offering vacation packages to a ton of different locations all across Southwest’s route network. Packages typically include round-trip flights on Southwest, hotel accommodations including taxes and fees, and various amenities at each hotel or resort, ranging from food or entertainment credits, to all-inclusive options.
Southwest Vacations has a few deals available on perfect spring break destinations when you book soon — in addition to the regular savings you get by booking a package, you can get some extra discounts.
