We haven’t seen such a flurry of travel deals since Black Friday: Thanks to several February holidays, real and cooked-up—Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, National Plan a Vacation Day—and the cruise industry’s wave season, the discounts are plentiful right now. Whether you’re considering an end-of-summer getaway or a close-to-home weekend trip in the next few months, here are a handful of hotel, flight, resort, and cruise deals to consider booking sooner rather than later.

Kimpton has a handful of Valentine’s Day packages going on right now. Two highlights are the Snow Your Love in Yellowstone promo at the Kimpton Armory Hotel in Bozeman, Montana, and Vermont’s Kimpton Taconic Hotel Valentine’s Day package. The former adds a $100 food and beverage credit and an America the Beautiful national park pass (typically $80), good for one-year entry to all U.S. parks, into your stay, plus holiday-appropriate bonuses like a bottle of champagne and gourmet picnic lunch. (Montana residents who live in the 406 area code can get 25 percent off their stay right now, too.) At the Taconic, packages include a $100 dining credit to Copper Grouse (which is taking outdoor dining reservations and offering pick-ups inside the hotel if you’d prefer to take dinner back to your room), local flowers and chocolates, and a complimentary room upgrade at time of check-in. These can be booked by February 27 for stays between February 1 and February 28.
