Why It’s a Deal
According to a recent search on Kayak, the lowest round-trip fares between Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale for travel in, say, early August, start from $169 with taxes (Spirit). Four nights at the Doubletree Grand Key Resort costs about $340 per person with taxes, and one at the SpringHill Suites in Fort Lauderdale costs about $59 per person, including taxes, while a five-day midsize-car rental costs about $133 per person, including taxes. So, if you booked this trip independently, you'd be paying a total of $701. This package is not only $13 less and includes the airfare, accommodations, rental car, and airport and hotel taxes, but it also includes a daily breakfast.

More Optional activities in Key West include Snuba diving tours ($99 per person); a 1.5-hour morning, daytime, or sunset sail ($35 per person); and a ghost tour ($15 per person). Additional nights at the Doubletree Grand Key Resort are about $85 per person per night. Extra nights at the SpringHill Suites in Fort Lauderdale are about $59 per person per night.
