Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip multicity airfare between New York City, Athens, and Istanbul starts from $616 in late October (Swiss Air). Add to that $130 per person for the flight from Athens to Istanbul, $103 per person including taxes for three nights at the Athens Lotus Hotel, and $118 per person for three nights at the Istanbul Holiday Hotel, and you're already spending $967. For $48 less, this travel package gives you the same perks, plus daily breakfast at the Istanbul hotel, and covers all taxes and fees.
