Guide to Scoring the Best Deals in 2018

You can visit two destinations for the price of one if the airline you’re taking to your final destination allows free “stopovers” at its hub cities. For example, you can arrange a stopover in Lisbon or Porto for up to five nights when flying on TAP Portugal. The deal includes discounts on hotels and other perks, such as a free bottle of wine in partner restaurants. Another possibility is the Azores archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean for up to seven nights when you fly to destinations in Europe on Azores Airlines from Boston; Oakland, Calif.; or Providence, R.I. Or spend a night in Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver when your Air Canada connection exceeds six hours.
