Type-A travelers, youre in luck. The Holiday Inn Aruba is offering as much as 45 percent off room rates, and all you have to do is reserve by September 30. The 45 percent savings is valid during the 2012 off-season, from May 1 to December 23, but you can still score a 35 percent discount during the peak winter season (January 2 to April 30, 2012) and the holidays (December 24, 2012 to January 1, 2013). Bonus: Aruba is situated safely outside of the hurricane belt, so you can take advantage of the steepest savings without stressing about storms.
THE VALUE: Rates drop to as little as $80 in the off-season, a 45 percent savings. Plus, kids 17 years old and younger stay free.
THE CATCH: A two-night minimum stay is required.
