Why It's A Deal On a recent Kayak search, we found airfare between New York, Athens, and Istabul for $626 in mid-February (United). One-way flights between Athens and Istabul start at about $127 (Olympic Air). Add that to about $98 per person for a three-night stay at the Arion Athens Hotel, and about $84 for a three-night stay at the Olimpiyat Hotel in Istanbul, and you'd pay at least $935 for airfare and accommodations if you booked independently. For $40 less, this deal gets you all the same inclusions, plus the convenience of booking all components at once.
More You can add nights in Athens from $40 per person, per night, and in Istanbul from $48 per person, per night.
