London will be ground zero for some heady celebrating this year, starting with Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee in June and followed by the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in July and August. Get a preview of the city before the crowds arrive with a five-day Valentine's Day getaway that costs about $1,200 per person.
The deal: CheapOAir's deal includes a five-night stay at KWest Hotel & Spa and round-trip airfare from L.A. to London. This is a winter deal whose price includes a $35 cash rebate and an additional $20 discount by using the code "PK60." Prices are based on double occupancy and vary by date and hotel-flight selection. Also, you can add lots of tours and events for more money.
When: The package must be reserved by Jan. 22 for travel through Feb. 15.
Tested: In an online check, I found availability for the package leaving L.A. on Feb. 9 and returning Feb. 15. It includes nonstrop flights on Air New Zealand and a standard double room at K West. The price, with tax and fees, rebates and promo code discount, came to $1,194 per person or about $199 per person per day. Not a bad price considering Kayak.com currently shows round-trip Air New Zealand airfare at $830 per person.
