ORLANDO, Fla. – After more than a year with the coronavirus pandemic, many are ready for a vacation and some relaxation.
Michael Fallon is a college professor who loves to travel and loves a lot.

“You know, the pandemic was tough on me because I love to travel,” Fallon said.
One of his best deals was a trip to China with his mother, which he booked through a website called Scott’s Cheap Flights.
“They’ll send you the deal alert and then tell you how to book it,” Fallon said.
News 6 went to the website and created a profile and there are some offers. A flight from Orlando to Los Angeles was $ 137, Orlando to Denver was $ 97 round-trip, and a round-trip flight from Orlando to Anchorage, Alaska was $ 259 round-trip.
Scott Keyes is the founder of Scott’s Cheap Flights and the author of Take More Vacations. He knows how to find these secret deals.
“I’ve been a professional low-cost flight expert for nearly a decade,” Keyes said.
He noticed that he was seeing a pent-up demand.
“People are really coming back for a year with a vengeance after being unable to travel in large part for a year,” Keyes said.
According to Keyes, there are plenty of offers out there and the website will send notifications to your email daily based on your preferences.
For international flights, some deals include Orlando to Dublin, Ireland for $ 300 round-trip and Orlando to Reykjavik, Iceland for $ 240 round-trip, both with full-service airlines.
“There are a growing number of countries where you can either get a negative (COVID-19) test or a vaccination certificate,” Keyes said. “So these are places like Iceland, places like Greece.”
This $ 240 round-trip ticket to Iceland could be combined with another offer for eight days and seven nights at Hotel Odinsve in Reykjavik for $ 1,000 per person.
Bob Cook, the sales director for Go Travel, said that places near Florida, like the Caribbean, are not currently where hotels are on offer because hotels and resorts are underutilized.
“Greece, Croatia and Serbia will be a lot less because they have been empty for 19 months,” said Cook.
This is the second time we hear Greece.
So here’s an offer for you: $ 1,899 per person can be spent seven days and six nights at the Golden Age Hotel in Athens or a similar hotel, and that includes airfare, according to Cook.
If that’s too expensive, check out Mexico, where $ 900 spends seven nights at the all-inclusive Ocean Coral and Turquesa in Cancun. The airfare is included.
“There are all kinds of offers,” said Cook.
Both Keyes and Cook take great care to know the COVID-19 restrictions on where to stay.
They also say if you see good deal don’t wait, jump on it quickly because prices change quickly.
