If a weekend isn?t enough time away, check out www., which sells longer trips. Among the best values are its condo rentals, available in about 150 cities worldwide at a fixed rate of $430 per week for two people.  If you want to bundle in your airfare,  11thHourVacations also lists charter flights. posts its top 25 deals every week; among them are exclusive offers as well as discount fares on low-cost carriers such as Jet-Blue (which aren?t usually sold on third-party sites).  Some of the best values are last-minute cruises.
