Ocean Coral & Turquesa Resort 4-Night Flight and Hotel for 2
Vendor: CheapCaribbean via Travelzoo
Price: From $920.70
Lowest By: $211
Expires: April 30

Is It Worth It?: Not only does this deal save you $211 and place you in a Puerto Morelos hotel with an Expedia rating of 82%, but it also offers the best price we've seen for any 4-night or more vacation to the Riviera Maya. So if you're in need of a long weekend escape to someplace decidedly warm (and not some place further north that's still vacillating back and forth between spring and winter chill), then it doesn't get any better than this.

Book this travel deal by April 30 for stays from August 17 through October 31.

Virgin America 1-Way Fares to the West Coast
Vendor: ShermansTravel

2-Night Stays at the Hawks Cay Resort

Situated between Key Largo and Key West, Duck Key is small and secluded and sure to provide a quiet and relaxing vacation.

Air France Roundtrip Flights to Europe
Vendor: Travelzoo
Price: From $704.91
Lowest By: $107
Expires: April 30

Is It Worth It?: The dollar's value against the Euro might be fluctuating, but it remains fairly strong compared to years past. As a result, hotel accommodations in select European countries areeffectively cheaper for American travelers. Take advantage of that, and this stellar airfare sale, and book yourself a trip to France, Italy, and more.

This price is based on departure from New York, NY, (JFK) to Milan, Italy, (MXP) on April 29 with return on May 11; other departure cities are available for an additional cost. Available destinations include Paris, Barcelona, Milan, and more. Book this travel deal by April 30 for travel through May 15.

GoGo Inflight WiFi Internet Passes
Vendor: GoGoAir
Price: Free
Lowest By: $80

Is It Worth It?: American Express Business Card members can register their card and score varying amounts of free internet passes, depending on what card you have; Centurion cardholders bag unlimited passes, Platinum cardholders bag ten passes, and Gold cardholders bag five passes. Normally these passes cost $16 a pop, which means even Gold members are saving at least $80. And we all know how irritating it is to lose contact with work, family, and Facebook while you're up in the air.
