SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Ticker®, the inspirational travel website and newsletter that is home to some of the best insider deals at many of the world's favorite destinations, today announced that it has an influx of spectacular romantic travel getaways to surprise your Valentine.

For the second year in a row, Valentine's Day falls during the long President's Day weekend (Friday February 12thMonday February 15th) and at a time when deals are abundant, making it even easier to whisk your special someone away for some R&R. For those looking to pop the question, what better way to do it than on this lover's holiday, during a three-day getaway at a scenic locale?

"Valentine's Day can get expensive with the standard restaurant reservations, gifts, flowers and chocolates. Instead, I advise couples to use that money to go away for the long weekend and have a more meaningful Valentine's Day experience," said Barbara Messing, Vice President of Travel Ticker. "By taking a romantic trip, lovebirds can create some incredible memories together and this year they can do it on a budget."

The month of February has great savings. Resorts at tropical destinations like Mexico are significantly more affordable than they were at Christmas or will be during Spring Break. In addition, travelers can take advantage of the current air fare "sale mania" as airlines are discounting heavily right now to several swoon-worthy destinations.

This Valentine's Day travelers can pay homage to Cupid with an amazing deal to a romantic locale. Travel Ticker recommends taking a lovers stroll in the streets of San Francisco; enjoying world-class blues music and a room with a view in Chicago; indulging in champagne breakfasts on the Las Vegas Strip; or swimming at a private cove beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
