The Azores are the closest and one of the more affordable destinations in Europe, a short four hour flight from Boston’s Logan Airport. Azores Express/SATA hotel and air packages give travelers the opportunity to explore five different islands while staying at one of 24 hotels.
There are four hotels offered on the island of Terceira, two on the island of Faial, one on the island of Santa Maria, one on the island of Pico, and 16 on the island of Sao Miguel.
All packages depart from Boston and include roundtrip, non-stop air, six nights lodging and daily breakfast.

Kids under six stay free, and pay only a child’s airfare.
The Azores Express/SATA packages cost $709 to $1,429 per person, before tax and are available from Sept. 16, 2009 through June 15, 2010. Availability depends on your choice of hotel, the islands you wish to visit and travel dates. To book travel, call 800-762-9995 or visit www.sata.pt for more details.
New Hotels, New Options
The newest island added to the Azores Express/SATA packages is the island of Pico. Meaning “peak” in Portuguese, Pico is characterized by the steep volcanic mountain that often rises above the cloud cover. Visitors can climb to 7,700 foot summit, the highest point in Portugal, or stay closer to sea-level and enjoy Pico’s signature wine known for carrying just a hint of lava.
Along the southwestern coast, the verdant landscape is criss-crossed with two-foot walls that shield the vineyards from the elements. Visitors also enjoy strolling through the charming seaside towns that lie nestled between black rocks and the sea. Continue Reading

Summer is a time to hop in the car and enjoy the great outdoors and fun activities. LeaseTrader.com today announced results from its Summertime Vehicle Recreation Survey, where more than 1,500 people took part in the company’s online poll to report what they’re driving and doing this summer. The majority of people are opting for the Ford Escape Hybrid for summer activities like family fishing trips.
LeaseTrader.com, the company that helps you adopt someone else’s short-term car lease to save money, also found that the Volkswagen Tiguan and Mazda CX-7 are two additional vehicles many people are choosing this summer for budget-friendly recreation outings that involve the whole family, like fishing trips, camping and backpacking.
The majority of those surveyed (63%) are opting for shorter-term summertime recreational vehicles that are 10-20% less expensive than what they would normally spend in years past. Those surveyed said they want a vehicle with 6-10 months remaining on the lease allowing them to focus the family auto budget on value and versatility.
“This year the majority of people want summertime activities that involve being together with the family and not as much flash and expense as going on an extravagant travel vacation,” said Sergio Stiberman, CEO and founder of LeaseTrader.com. “Taking over an existing vehicle lease helps people be mindful of changing family budgets and lets them still enjoy summer with a fun car. Our adoption process allows you to take over a very short-term lease with no money down.”
Survey results showed that people still want convertibles for a fun summer ride but are opting for less expensive alternatives. Short-term lease drivers today favor the MINI Cooper convertible compared with the most popular choice two years ago – the Mercedes-Benz CLK convertible.
LeaseTrader.com easily and affordably matches car shoppers with individuals looking to transfer their auto lease. Privately held and founded in 1998, LeaseTrader.com is headquartered in Miami. For more information follow on Twitter @Lease_Trader, visit http://LeaseTrader.com, or call 800-770-0207.
