Looking to expand your travel horizons this summer or fall? We've got the deals for you. From Bonaire to Bali to Bulgaria, travel outside the usual domestic or Caribbean destinations and head somewhere truly special this season – and still save in the process.

Escape to beautiful Bonaire, a lesser-known island  in the heart of the Southern Caribbean (and one-third of the "ABC Islands" – Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao). Stay at the Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Casino from only $139 per night starting June 1, saving you 30 percent on the hotel's high season rates. Enjoy the unpretentious vibe of this sleepy island, and take advantage of some of the best scuba diving in the world during your stay. The resort's on-site PADI five-star dive operation offers custom dive boats, equipment, and an experienced dive crew, all sure to make your trip to Bonaire an unforgettable one.

For an entirely different travel experience, head to Iceland this fall and experience some of this unique northern island's incredible sights, from the dazzling Northern Lights to the buzzing nightlife of Reykjavik and the Blue Lagoon, the country's famous geothermal spa. Round-trip flights from New York and Boston start from just $585 on Icelandair throughout October; just enter your desired dates and departure city in the booking engine to find the best rates.
