When it comes to Orlando and Las Vegas, the deals offered by the packaging arm of Southwest Airlines are often unbeatable. To other destinations...its hit or miss. But the hits may be outnumbering the misses this fall, thanks to the company's most recent promotion.

Southwest is going to be throwing in free Dollar car rentals (economy class, only) on vacations of 5 nights or more throughout the fall and into the winter. This is in addition to a sliding scale of money off depending on how much you pay on the initial package. Travelers must use the code SEPSAVE when booking and make their final payments on their trip by the last day in September. The deal is good for travel between Sept 17 and Dec 31, though there will be some blackout dates (and I'm guessing they'll falling during holiday weeks).
So check it out, and of course price the elements separately to make sure you're getting a deal. As I said earlier, sometimes you will be with SWA's vacation packages, but not always.
