Last-Minute Winter Travel Deals

The holiday season may be in full force, but it's not too late to book a quick winter vacation.

The CBS Early Show outlined a handful of tips to get the best deals on winter trips, even booked now at this late stage in the season (watch the report below).

"You can't get any more last minute than Dec. 20th," says Early Show Travel Editor Peter Greenberg, adding there are some great deals out there still.

Here are a few of Greenberg's tips:

  • Don't go where everyone else is going: there are some great deals along the Atlantic seaboard with hotel rates starting as low as $79 a night
  • Avoid the obvious: while everyone else is heading to the beach, you can get some great deals and beat the lines at wine tasting tours for instance
  • Check dates: even just a few days difference in your plans can result in a huge drop in prices such as air fare
