Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from New York to Istanbul starts from $655 with taxes for travel in mid-February (Turkish Airlines). Add to that $151 per person including tax for four nights at Hotellino Istanbul, $101 per person for one night at Ankara Plaza Hotel, $97 per person for two nights at Perissia Hotel, $120 per person for two nights at the Marmara Antalya, $54 per person for one night at Spa Hotel Colossae Thermal, $108 per person for two nights at Charisma Deluxe Hotel Kusadasi, and $51 per person for one night at Tusan Hotel Canakkale, and you’d be paying $1,337 for the airfare and accommodations alone. For just $598 more than that, this package covers the flight, 13 nights’ accommodations, 21 meals, all ground transportation, entrance fees, an English-speaking guide throughout, airport transfers, and all taxes and fees. It also offers the added convenience of all-in-one booking.
