Airline bookings are low not only for New Year's, but also for the early
months of 2000. Which means, as any savvy traveler knows, it's your chance
to jump in and get a great deal. Especially in Europe.
British Airways' holiday travel division is offering to fly you from any of
its 21 U.S. gateways and put you up for three nights in four-star hotels in
popular European cities for next to nothing. Fly New York or Boston to
London or Paris for only $429 per person! Remember, this includes airfare
and three nights in a great hotel! Lisbon is even less, at $419.
Prague, Vienna and Barcelona are the other European cities on sale. Now, you
have to book 14 days ahead of time. The London offer is only good until
February 16th. But you can travel to the other European cities all the way
until May 31st. Leaving from the West Coast? Just add a mere $150 to the
Europe on sale thanks to British Airways -- that's my Deal of the Week!
The North Pole
Near Fairbanks, Alaska, in a region of the north founded on gold
prospecting, the small community of North Pole is mining a much more
sustainable commodity. For decades now it's styled itself as the unofficial
home of Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, the jolly old elf. That's right the big
guy, Santa himself. And as we hear from Robert Hannon, it's a place where
Christmas never stops.
