Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not against fantastic trips at great prices and advertising them far and wide. My own company has developed quite a nice reputation for offering exotic travel at great prices. I'm talking about advertised prices that make absolutely no sense, and aren't actually the final price you'll pay anyway.
For a savvy traveler, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas represent the best time of the year to travel -- both domestic and international -- as airlines, hotels and cruise lines scramble to attract customers in this dead period between the holidays. Many of the deals offer the best pricing we see all year.
