Assuming you still have a job, that is.
The recession has, no doubt, taken a toll on certain sectors and destinations, not to mention the folks who've been unable to pay for leisure.
But for those who've not given up on getaways, the options and bargains were -- and continue to be -- plenty.
Last week, I got an email from Expedia telling me I could get air fare and 4 nights in Fiji for around $1200. Intrigued, I went to their site and rang it up. Turns out I could get 5
nights with an air-conditioned oceanfront "villa" and air fare for just over a grand. If I didn't already have a vacation lined up next month, I probably would have booked it regardless of the coup thing.
BTW, Check out JetBlue's $599 all-you-can-eat thing. Again, if I didn't already have my vacation lined up...
