Hiking the Amalfi Coast: Nothing on this deluxe Italian coastline comes cheap...usually. But the always affordable GAP Adventures apparently is having trouble filling the April 30 departure of its walking tour of the area and so has shaved a full 25% off the cost. Now this 8-day, fully-guided tour is available for $975. That price includes farmhouse accommodations for 3 nights and hotel accommodations for 4, breakfasts, one dinner, a tour of Pompeii and several days of challenging walks. For more info, head to the GAP site. You'll also find discounts there for other April and May tours to a host of tempting destinations.

Cheap sleeps in the British Isles and Spain: Family friendly (four can share a room with pull-out sofa for the cost of two), clean, well-managed: what's not to like about Europe's Travelodge chain ( Their constant sales make them downright adorable in many traveler's minds, like the one that launches tomorrow morning. It will drop 5000 discounted rooms on the market for stays between Apr 21 and May 4. Prices are being slashed to just 15 GBP, an excellent rate, especially if you use one as a quad. Full information can be found at the Travelodge site.

Its not too late to ski: The pack is still deep, the powder fluffy, in Banff. But not many schusser know that so the the ultra-swank Fairmont is giving away free nights and free lift tickets to keep business steady. For the rest of this month, it will be charging $496 per person for four nights lodging and four days of skiing, a price that shaves off the cost of one day. For a place this cushy, and skiing this rad, its a bargain. To learn more, go to
