Wouldn’t it be nice to spend Easter on a beautiful Mediterranean island – while spending less to do it? While sunny Cyprus is known as the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, it is also richly associated with early Christian history and many of its sights are fascinating for travelers of any faith. It was actually in Cyprus that St. Paul, traveling with St. Barnabas, succeeded in converting an ancient Roman proconsul to the Christian faith, in effect making him the first official in the Roman Empire to adopt Christianity.
Southwest Airlines has launched a new program called InAirtainment to kick off the new Wi-Fi offered on some of its flights (to be featured fleet-wide by the end of 2012). InAirtainment is essentially free access to iTunes in the sky, featuring the same top songs, music videos, games, television shows, and movies available while on land.
InAirtainment allows flyers to download and listen to their favorite music and watch popular entertainment shows without paying the standard in-flight Wi-Fi fee, which right now is a flat rate of $5. Songs on iTunes cost $0.99 to$1.29, most television shows are $1.99, and films typically range from $9.99 to $14.99, while rental films are as little as $0.99. Through the end of March, a play list of 20 songs by new and upcoming artists “about to fly,” such as Chris Bathgate and Laura Jansen, will be offered for free. Read more
During the month of February, seven airlines have partnered with Gogo Inflight Internet (with sponsorship by Ford) to offer complimentary access to the king of social networking websites and the most-trafficked website by Gogo users: Facebook. AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways, and Virgin America are each offering the promo on Wi-Fi-enabled domestic flights. (Note that Airtran, Delta, and Virgin America are the only of the bunch to currently offer full Wi-Fi capacity on all their domestic flights.) This month-long bargain allows flyers to maintain social communication with friends 10,000-plus feet below them using personal laptops or handheld Wi-Fi devices absolutely free, though for access to other websites besides Facebook, flyers must still pay a fee ranging from $4.95 to $12.95 (the price differential depends on flight time).

One of travelers’ biggest complaints from 2010? Checked bag fees. InterContinental Hotel Group feels your pain: The company is extending its “Check It Free” offer through April 30, allowing guests to apply for a rebate to compensate for those pesky airline fees.
IHG also ups the ante this time around by doubling the maximum rebate per stay to $100 – generally the equivalent of checking two bags on both legs of a round-trip flight. The promotion is running across all IHG brands, from luxe InterContinental to boutique-style Hotel Indigo to budget-friendly Holiday Inn.
Of course, the offer is not without its caveats. You must book a two-night weekend stay (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) and you must pay for the stay with a Visa card to be eligible. Download the rebate forms and see all the conditions at www.ihg.com/freebag.
New York‘s not known as the city that never sleeps for nothing. Fresh off the announcement of a record-breaking 48.7 million visitors in 2010, Mayor Bloomberg has upped the ante to 50 million by 2012. With an appealing slate of winter promotions that are valuable to both tourists and locals alike, it’s a goal that we can’t help but imagine being realized. 2011 is certainly off to a strong start!
Theater queens, this one’s for you: NYC’s first-ever Broadway Week, takes a bow on the Great White Way January 24–February 10, offering up two-for-one tickets to 18 popular shows. That’s right, free tickets, especially for massive crowd-pleasing musicals like Chicago, American Idiot, and The Lion King. So if you want to see the oh-la-la of the La Cage revival or kick heels with Billy Elliot, it’s best to book early (code BW2011), because like Restaurant Week – which also begins January 24 and features three-course prix fixe meals at over 300 top restaurants – these deals are bound to go fast. If you’re feeling lucky, enter to win a pair of tickets per month for a year as well, through February 9. Visit NYCgo.com/GetMoreNYC for the full list of shows, terms and sweepstakes. Read more

The Jalousie Plantation, on the lush island of St. Lucia, recently renovated its Luxury Sugar Mill Rooms. They’re now a study in understated chic – read: white-on-white with four-poster beds. Each is loaded with amenities, has a private walled garden and a plunge pool – and most have views of the Pitons.
Book one on the Rainforest Spa Break Away (January 5, 2011–July 31, 2011) and you save big:
The cost starts at $270 per night (excluding 18% tax and service charge) and it comes with:
- one signature Bamboo massage at the tree-house-style Rainforest Spa
- one manicure or pedicure
- full daily breakfast for two adults
And like many of the resorts that reward you for a longer stay, if you book three consecutive nights, the fourth night is free.
What’s the catch? The Luxury Sugar Mill Rooms aren’t quite as secluded as the free-standing villas, although you’re close to the water. So you save hundreds by having a neighbor. www.jalousieplantation.com
