Travelers can find many sites offering everything from all-inclusive vacation packages to last minute vacation deals to Punta Cana. We’ve compared these sites based on prices, customer service and cancellation policies, among other factors, and recommend the following three for the best cheap vacation and vacation deals to Punta Cana.


Expedia is our top choice for all-inclusive vacation packages and last minute vacation deals to Punta Cana. Their search results highlight the amount you’ll be saving (an average of $100-300), so you can easily scan for the best deal on a flight and hotel bundle. Prices also often include a bonus resort credit or spa discount. They offer a Deal of the Day, which could mean a free flight or 1 night free at a hotel depending on your travel dates to Punta Cana. Thanks to their large selection of properties, Expedia often has savings of $150 or more on last minute travel as well. Expedia’s Customer Service is available 24/7 and you can cancel your entire trip without penalty within 24 hours of booking.

CheapCaribbean’s travel bundles generally came in at the same price as Expedia and Apple Vacations. That said, you can save up to 50% or more on last minute vacation deals if there happens to be one available to your destination. Adventurous travelers can save big on a Deal of Fortune, where you blindly book a hotel at up to 65% off. Be sure to read the fine print because these deals generally do not qualify for CheapCaribbean’s 24-hour cancellation policy. CheapCaribbean also comes in handy if you’re looking for family-friendly vacation packages, or special interest resorts, as their search filters are thorough.

Apple Vacations

If you are making your travel plans well in advance, we would also recommend checking your dates on Apple Vacations. They have competitive pricing to Expedia and CheapCaribbean on cheap vacation packages and all-inclusive vacation deals, with roundtrip airport transfer included in the price. They will also match a lower price if you find one on a competitor’s site. Unfortunately, this is most helpful to those who plan out their trip early, as Apple Vacations’ last minute vacation deals are limited or unavailable depending on your place of origin. They heavily rely on TripAdvisor reviews, which are not verified, so we recommend doing additional research before booking a trip package. All cancellations are subject to a penalty fee unless you purchase their insurance.
