Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from New York to Malta starts from $1,156 with taxes for travel in late October (Alitalia). Add to that $517 per person, including tax, for five nights at Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, and you’d be paying $1,673 for the airfare and accommodations alone. For just $136 more than that, this package covers the flight and five nights’ hotel accommodations, plus daily breakfast, all ground transfers, two half-day tours (valued at $55 each) all taxes and fees, and offers the added convenience of all-in-one booking.

More Additional excursions/activities are available for a fee, including a nighttime tour of Gozo, Malta’s sister island, from $46 per person; and a 16th-century "medieval knights" dinner show from $89 per person. Upgrade your room from $200 per person. Extend your stay from $125 per person per night, based on double occupancy.
