Are you in the process of planning a trip?  If you are and if your trip will require air travel, you will find that you have a number of options when booking your travel arrangements.  One of those options is to purchase a vacation package.

Although vacation packages do have their pros and cons, there are many travelers who buy them, as well as recommend them to others.  There are two main reasons for this.  The allure of vacation packages is that you often receive a discount and that it is easy to book multiple travel arrangements all at the same time.  Although you will find some variations, vacation packages should include more than just airline reservations.  Depending on the package in question, they may include overnight accommodations and a car rental as well.

Always time to just relax

If you are interested in booking your next travel arrangements in the form of a vacation package, you may be wondering how you can go about doing so. The good news is that you have a number of different options.  Just a few of the many ways that you can go about finding and buying vacation packages that include airline reservations are highlighted below for your convenience.

The first place that you will want to look at is some of the major online travel websites, like Orbtiz.  These are travel websites that focus on large areas, such as both domestic and international travel.  Many of the well known vacation travel websites will give you some freedom when looking to buy vacation packages.  For example, if you already have your overnight accommodations arranged, like if you are staying with friends or family, you can still book a vacation package that only include airline reservations and a car rental.

As a reminder, be sure to visit travel websites that are well known for their great deals and good reputations.  These websites can easily be found with a standard internet search.  If you are concerned with the reputation of an online travel website, you can easily do a little bit of research first online.  There are many websites that are designed to assist travelers, as well as online message boards where other travelers, just like you, talk about online travel websites.  To help save you the best money, you may want to compare similar vacation packages offered by different travel websites. When doing so, have a pen and paper handy so that you can easily record your findings.

In addition to well known travel websites, you may also want to visit specialty websites. These are travel websites that focus on a particular area, such as Hawaii or Florida.  Many of these smaller travel websites are still trustworthy and reputable websites and many also offer vacation packages.  In fact, depending on where you look, you may find a vacation package that includes a stay at a vacation rental, like a vacation home.  These types of vacation packages can sometimes be hard to find, but they do exist.

If you are traveling to a vacation destination that is popular or well known, like California wine country or Hawaii, you may be able to get vacation packages through vacation resorts and hotels.  While many of these packages may only include overnight accommodations, a car rental, and a few nearby activities, you may be surprised with what you find.  As a reminder, you may have the best luck when dealing with large or well known hotels and vacation resorts, as they are the ones more likely to have vacation packages for sale that include airline tickets.

As a reminder, vacation packages come in a number of different formats.  Even if you have purchased your airline tickets, you may still be able to benefit from a vacation package.  There are some vacation packages that only include overnight accommodations, like a stay at hotel or vacation resort, and a car rental.  These types of packages are ideal for those who have found a great deal on airfare independently or for those who have already made their airline reservations.

Enjoy your travels!

Maui Beaches

The island of Maui is home to some of the most amazing
beaches. Some beaches offer swimming all year round,
while others are best for surfing or snorkeling
during certain times of the year. Depending on
where you choose to stay, there are always some
famous beaches nearby.

imageswsok

West Maui Beaches
If you drive along the west coast of Maui from Lahaina
to Kapalua, you’ll see many breathtaking beaches
along the coast. Kaanapali Beach will offer
you over three miles of white sand with a variety
of watersports, including surfing, sailboating,
and even catamaran rides. On the north end of
the beach is Black Rock, which is well known for
snorkeling.

Visitors like the sandy beach at Napili Bay,
because there are no high rise buildings around,
and the bay is protected well from waves. The
Kapalua Resort in west Maui is home to Kapalua
Beach, Oneloa Bay Beach, and the D.T. Fleming
Beach.

South Maui Beaches
The rule with Hawaii and Maui is that the further
south you travel, the less crowded the beaches
will be.

Kihei offers you a series of beaches along the
six mile coastline, some even offering lifeguards,
restrooms, and picnic areas. Polo Beach and
Wailea Beach offer both restrooms and equipment
rentals. Or, if you prefer a more secluded beach,
you should visit Maluaka Beach at the Maui
Prince Hotel – where you may even encounter some
green sea turtles.

A few miles past the Maui Prince Hotel is the
Big Beach of Makena, which is one of the best
beaches on Maui. As the name implies, the beach is
quite large, and best of all – empty. It offers
white sand, picnic facilities, and even restrooms.

East Maui Beaches
The beaches of East Maui are unlike others in
Hawaii. Surround by lush scenery, the beaches are
secluded, scenic, and very colorful.

imagesrfdch

Hamoa Beach is a must visit if you plan to visit
East Maui. As you approach the beach from the
main road, you’ll walk past colorful plants and
palm trees surrounding Hamoa Beach. Just off Hana
Highway is Hana Bay Beach, which offers black
volcanic sand.

The Red Sand Beach is difficult to get to, you’ll
need to find a narrow path along the coast. The
beach offers plenty of swimming and snorkeling,
and you should be the only one there – which is
great for those looking for privacy. Even though
it is hard to get to, Red Sand Beach is truly one
of a kind.

Beach Vacations For Winter

During the winter months, finding a beach vacation
spot can be a little difficult. It doesn’t have
to be, which is where this article will really come
in handy. Below, you’ll find some resorts that
offer a unique twist to your winter beach vacation.

1. Molokai Ranch and Lodge
On a white sand shore on the tiny Hawaiian island of
Molokai, guests will stay in comfortable yet unique
tents. Each double unit canvas bungalow sits on
wooden platforms, offers queen size beds in one
unit, twin beds in the other, solar powered lights,
and a private bathroom with hot water showers.

FtiTuL

The Molokai Ranch and Lodge offers over 54,000
acres, including seaside cliffs with very lush
valleys. The outdoor activities here include sea
kayaking, cultural hikes, mountain biking, and
horseback rides. For the kids, the lodge offers
nature walks, horse stables, tidal pools and
Hawaiian arts and crafts.

2. Grand Wailea Resort and Spa of Hawaii

guests happy. Now days, resorts compete in water
activities such as lagoons, waterfalls, water
slides, and even lazy rivers.

The Grand Wailea Resort offers several attractions,
such as the 4,580 square foot Hibiscus pool,
and the 25,700 square foot Canyon Activity pool

sea animals.

Republic has been working very hard to establish
itself as a destination for families, with many
all inclusives being built. This location has
all the perks of a tropical resort plus stand
out features that include kids programs, and
other attractions that make Club Med Punta Cana
one of the most unique beach vacation spots in
the entire world.

5. Virgin Islands
The US Virgin Islands National Park is a very
unique vacation spot with white sandy beaches, and
lodging in comfortable tent cottages.

As with the Molokai Ranch, guest cottages are built
on platforms and designed to be both attractive
and comfortable. Each one has a sleeping area,
bed linen, towels, kitchen utensils, stove, ice
cooler, and even a private deck.

surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. There is

those who want to cook from the privacy of their
own room.
