There are many websites offering deals on vacation packages to St. Thomas. We’ve compared them based on factors like price, availability and customer service to recommend the following for booking last minute vacation deals and cheap vacation packages to St. Thomas. We recommend checking your travel dates across all three sites to find the best deal available.
Expedia is our preferred choice for cheap vacation packages to St. Thomas. They have the largest selection of flights and hotels, with an average savings of $100-300 on travel bundles. If you’re looking for last minute vacation deals, Expedia consistently has the most properties available and still at a discounted rate. Some travel dates have Deals of the Day or Unreal Deals, meaning your travel bundle could include one night free at the hotel or a free flight. Bookings with Expedia often include resort and spa credits – sometimes up to $400, or free breakfast for two. Most bookings qualify for free cancellations within 24 hours. Expedia’s customer service is available 24/7 should you have questions about your itinerary.
Depending on your place of origin, Apple Vacations may be able to save you up to $250 more than Expedia or CheapCaribbean on all-inclusive vacation packages to St. Thomas. This includes the fact that they already have roundtrip airport transfers built into their prices (an average additional savings of $50). Apple Vacations is best for those planning well in advance, as they do not offer as many properties as Expedia. Last minute vacation deals are limited or unavailable to popular destinations like St. Thomas. We recommend doing additional research on a property before booking with them because cancellations are subject to a fee, unless you purchase Apple Vacations’ travel insurance.
CheapCaribbeans’s vacation packages often came in at the same price – or just a tad higher – than Expedia and Apple Vacations. However, if you’re willing to book a hotel by star rating alone, you can save up to 65% with the mysterious Deal of Fortune. They may have last minute vacations deals at up to 50%, but options are limited due in part to their smaller inventory in St. Thomas. CheapCaribbean has handy search filters for finding special interest resorts, like family-friendly or all-inclusive (or both!) properties. It’s worth noting that most deals do not qualify for CheapCaribbean’s 24-hour cancellation policy, so we recommend you thoroughly research what you can before booking.
