Would you be willing to book something last minute?  I have had good experiences with site59 (now lastminute.com).  But for the week between Christmas and New Year’s, it might be a little risky…

We’re going to Disney World and staying in their Carribean Beach Resort 🙂

The biggest cost at that time is probably the airfare, it’s so high that time of year unless you wait for the last minute deals (if there are any).  What about Florida or the Keys?

We got airfare and hotel in Bermuda for under $2000. Have you thought about renting a house on the Outer Banks in North Carolina? That can be fun!

Your biggest obstacle is that you’re traveling during peak holiday season (especially for Europeans) to a beach destination (most people want to go to warmer places for the winter).

To score a deal, you’re either going to have to change your dates, risk it at the last minute, or change your destination to some place that isn’t as popular in the winter.  Is your heart set on the beach?

I went to New Orleans one time in January, and it was fun.  It was still warm (ok, warm for me!) and there’s lots to do.  You couldn’t do the laying-on-the-beach type of vacation, but you could go on swamp tours, stay at a plantation, hit jazz clubs etc… 

Also, you could check into Las Vegas.  Sometimes really awesome travel packages come up so that you can get tickets, hotel stays, and even dinner coupons for dirt cheap.  One of my co-workers found a deal last year for a round-trip flight from Montana, three nights at Ceasar’s, and a dinner/show package for $400/person right afte the new year!  🙂  And here’s a website I found to do Vegas on a budget:  http://www.cheapovegas.com/index.php.

That’s definitely a peak (read: expensive) traveling time due to being right during the holidays.  Are your dates flexible?

I can’t wait to hear the responses for this, except we are hoping to go somewhere around this time next month.
