Various types of vacation packages
Typical vacation packages can be booked through most travel services- like Travelocity, Priceline, Expedia, etc. Specialized and even more personalized trip packages are provided through companies like Southwest Airlines Vacations.

Time share vacation packages
While the economy has taken a hit on the time share industry as well, there are still plenty of rooms available. Since those rooms aren't owned, they become a depreciating asset. Instead of losing potential revenue, timeshare operators have changed emphasis on their timeshare promotion presentations.
Instead of heavy selling tactics of the past, timeshare vacation packages are offered as an affordable family vacation. This fills up rooms in popular desintations, and gives the family a cheap weekend stay wth added benefits.
Most vacation packages also provide free admission tickets, dining coupon certificates or upgrades. Long time vacationers know that these packages vacations can save hundreds of dollars on a family trip.
These mini-vacation packages may still require attendance at a time share presentation or tour of the property. Air flight is often not included, but the room rates are often lower in more resort-like settings. Find out more about timeshare promotional vacation packages.
