Save big this February with astounding deals on cheap vacations. According to CheapTickets’ 2009 Value Travel Forecast, February is the best month to explore Italy, France and Colorado Springs, Colorado. With hotel savings of up to 42% compared to peak rates (based on analysis of hotels booked on CheapTickets from December 2007 to November 2008), February is the perfect time for a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway to Europe, or simply an end-of-winter excursion to the Rockies.

The CheapTickets’ 2009 Value Travel Forecast has named Italy as the best travel value this February, with savings of up to 42% on Italy hotels.
With its impressive history, fashion houses and food, Italy is the
perfect place to travel for your next cheap vacation. Whether you want
to explore ruins in Rome, art in Florence, or take in the scenic countryside, you can have a cheap Italy vacation for less than you would imagine.

Plan a cheap France vacation this winter and see what everyone
is talking about. Exquisite cuisine and breathtaking architecture are
just a couple of reasons why people fall in love with this country. The
topography of the country alone is enough to make you come back for
more. Whether you are looking to ski the Alps, sun yourself on the southern coast, or take in the urban ambiance of Paris, France has something for everyone. And when you travel to France in February, you can save up to 35% on your hotel.

Overlooking beautiful Pikes Peak and couple hours from some of the best skiing in the country, Colorado Springs is a truly unique place to spend your cheap vacation. Located at the edge of the Rockies, Colorado Springs embodies the spirit of the mountains while being firmly grounded in the culture of the plains. Experience the juxtaposition by traveling to Olympic Training Center located close to downtown Colorado Springs, and then heading across town to the Garden of the Gods, home to some of the most beautiful hiking in the area.  With savings of up to 29% on cheap Colorado Springs hotels, February is the best time to take advantage of all this mountain town has to offer.
