Start looking for last minute travel deals to the 2008 Olympic Games. With the Games two weeks away, unsold inventory has to be put on sale. Now is the time to start searching for travel deals.

Olympic Ticket packages have become popular. These packages include airfare, hotel, tours and tickets to a couple of events. A family of four can now go to the Games for less than $10,000 including airfare, hotel, tours, and tickets for everyone.

Most online travel websites will have a Last Minute Deals feature. Use this feature to find available packages. And some online travel websites have included Exclusive China packages. A lot of these are coming in at 50% off.

It is also important which airport is your originating flight. Most packages have originating flights from either New Your or LA - don't forget to include the additional flight cost if you are originating from a different city and have to fly to one of these airports.

There are a few other costs you want to include to make sure you are getting a deal:

1. Passports
2. Airport taxes
3. Government fees
4. Baggage charges
5. Flights in China

Most of the packages will include a breakdown of these additional fees. What's important is to make sure these fees do not make one deal that is better than another one all of a sudden more expensive. Be sure to compare the final cost, not the initial prices presented to you.


If you have a dream of attending the Olympics and especially getting a chance to see and tour China, now is the time. All-inclusive packages and packages specifically for the Games are available. Just be patient and take your time searching for the travel deals. As the start of the Games get closer, more deals will be made available, but be careful in waiting too long, because getting everybody on the same schedule becomes more of a challenge the closer you get to the start of the Games.

Most importantly, search for the travel deals and have fun!
