Today, it's time to take advantage of amazing last-minute spring break deals.

Since we all have a different dream destination in mind, I've listed all the major travel sites that are offering superb deals. If you don't find what you're looking for at one, consider checking the next.

Bon Voyage!

Bookit.com has launched a sale of overnight spring savings for a limited time. CLICK HERE

Here's a little known secret at Travelocity.com -- the highest savings are in a very specific category. You type in the city you want to stay in, when you want to stay, how many rooms, how many people and Travelocity lists a number of hotels that fit your requirements -- all at up to 55 percent off Travelocity's already greatly reduced hotel prices.

You only know the hotel you're staying in after you've booked and if you use an Amex card to book a 2+ night hotel stay, you can take another $20 off! CLICK HERE

Book a hotel through Orbitz, use this coupon link and save more, CLICK HERE.

For flights, consider booking through Yapta.com. This phenomenal resource that I've mentioned in the past lets you book just as you would with any major airline but it also works to get you your money back if the price drops after you buy, before you fly. In addition to flight credits, it also reveals the best times to purchase taking industry trends into account. CLICK HERE

Here's a big way to keep saving once you're in the city you're traveling to...

Buy the Entertainment Book for the city you're visiting this week for just $19.99 with free shipping -- and there are Entertainment Books for more than 150 cities in the U.S. and Canada. Each coupon book is filled with thousands of coupons for national and local merchants, this is a sure way to see the city and keep the costs down. CLICK HERE

For food savings, CLICK HERE and buy gift certificates for whatever city you're visiting at 80 percent off. Please read all terms and conditions very carefully. This is also a great option if you're considering a staycation.

If there's a deal you want me to research or a question you have, I'd love to hear from you. Send an email to ways2save@wkyc.com.

You can watch for new savings tips each morning at 5:50 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. on Channel 3 News Today, and always at WKYC.com.
