Travel deals 13.02.2009

Like to hear ‘em? Here they go!

Lufthansa Valentine’s specials
Available for purchase from Feb. 13-15, this appears to be the most recent incarnation of Lufthansa’s ongoing European sales. The fares start from 99€ and are available for travel from today until the end of the year, but, as you’ll see on the price/date matrix when attempting to schedule flights, the 99€ rate is only available on certain dates.

Dubai-Shanghai package
I don’t normally go for package deals with specified destinations, but this one sounds particularly cool. It’s a 10-day trip (three of which are transit days) for 899€ per traveler, departing from Frankfurt or München (or Düsseldorf for an additional fee) on Emirates and including all air and hotel. There are specific dates in which you can travel and excursions on which you can reserve a spot while purchasing the trip itself. I didn’t see specific purchase dates, but it appears spots on the trip are limited. Gebeco is the travel agency offering the package.

Travelocity Cruise sale
Usually, I do my cruise searches on Vacations To Go, but Travelocity brokers cruises, too, and has what appears to be some pretty deep discounts available. The purchase dates on these vary, so keep a close eye on the terms and conditions, but each line and sailing has its own set of incentives.

Those are this week’s best looking deals. As always, fill me in if there are some hot deals that I missed. Happy trails!
