Our Travel-Expert-in-Residence, Rudy Maxa, brings us -- not one, but -- TWO deals this week: one that will take you up North and one that will take you down South. And, at prices like these, you don't have to choose just one direction to move in.

Up North: Vancouver's Hotel Opus just opened, and they're giving Savvy Traveler listeners a special rate of $120 a night, plus a room upgrade. This chichi boutique hotel is located in the trendy Yaletown neighborhood, steps from the city's harbor. It has a French brasserie for dining and rooms that are well appointed, with vibrant colors and windows you can actually open. Ooo!

Down South: Fly to the Caribbean for up to 40 percent off. It's part of Air Jamaica's "Buy Now, Fly in Winter" fare sale. You'll fly nonstop from any of 12 U.S. gateways to Jamaica, Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada, Antigua, Grand Cayman, Bonaire, Curacao or the Bahamas. Your travel window is anytime between December 13 and June 5, 2003, but you have to book by November 1 -- so pick an island and get crackin'!
