The fare wars are on, with plenty of airlines slashing rates for post-holiday travel. Deals include Midwest's Omaha to Ft. Lauderdale for $104 each way. Find the deals at Kayak, Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Cheaptickets, Priceline, and other search engines.
In a clever move, Omni Hotels has latched on to the fare wars by launching a Winter 72-Hour Sale. Beginning today and running through Thursday, Nov. 5, guests can book luxury accomodations at Omni Hotels for up to 40 percent off in the same destinations as the winter fare sales. Rates from $69. You can't beat that for an Omni!
Eighteen hotels, mostly in the southern half of the U.S., are included in this offer. (See the complete list.)
A case in point: Newly built and opened last January, The Omni Fort Worth Hotel is sculpted from native stone and rich hardwoods and wrapped in glass. It houses 1,929 pieces of artwork, all commissioned by Texas artists, and its 614 guest rooms and suites are distinguished with an authentic Texas decor.
The property has sale rates from $199, roughly 40 percent off typical rates.
(If you book a room here, be sure to read Budget Travel's excellent round-up, "25 Reasons We Love Fort Worth.")
Travel must happen between Dec. 2, 2009 and Feb. 10, 2010, excluding New Year's Eve. For more info, please visit Omni Hotels 72-Hour Sale website.
