Give Dad the Gift of Travel this Father's Day

We recently asked readers and the staff here at Budget Travel where they would take Dad for Father's Day. We say get Dad a travel gift certificate and make that dream trip a reality.

Airlines like Delta, Jet Blue, Southwest, and Alaska Airlines offer cards applicable to flights anywhere Dad would like to go, whether it's visiting the grandkids or going on a golf getaway with his buddies. He'll need somewhere to stay in that case. Good thing gift cards are available from hotel chains like Best Western, Marriott, and Hyatt.

If you would rather help Dad finally go on that grand vacation to China, India, or Australia that he's been talking about since you were a kid, many tour operators sell gift certificates as well. Gate 1 Travel offers certificates in denominations of $100 with no expiration date. Globus sells certificates for $50, $200, or $500 towards land/cruise trips, and you can get a gift certificate in any denomination from American Airlines vacations for air/hotel packages to destinations around the world.

Wrap these up and then tip Dad off to our Real Deals section to save him even more money. You're guaranteed to be the favorite child this Sunday.
