If you’ve been trying to figure out how to afford a vacation this summer, now’s the time to act. This is one deal you won’t want to miss, and if you hesitate you’ll surely regret it: You can fly to Greece for less than $400 right now, thanks to a special promotion from Dubai-based airline Emirates.

This might sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. However, there is a catch. First of all, you only have until 11:59 p.m. EST on Aug. 17 to take advantage of this deal, so you really are going to have to act quickly to get in on the savings.

OK, so now that the deadline is extremely tight, let’s get into the details of this promo. When you and one other person travel together to Athens, you can get a nonstop flight for a total of $799, which is $399.50 per person. For a trip to Greece, this is an incredible deal.

But this is only valid if you’re flying from the Newark airport between the dates of Sept. 17 through Dec. 18, 2017, Dec. 25 through March 30, 2018, or April 9, 2018 through May 15, 2018. These are very specific travel dates, but if they work with your schedule, you’ll be in for the trip of a lifetime—at a deep discount!

Emirates also offers vacation packages, so you could literally book an entire vacation through the travel company, making this a hassle-free vacation.

Travel packages to Athens start at $875 per person including the price of flights when two or more people book together. When you arrive in Athens, you’ll be met with culture and history galore. Plus, once you’re there, it’s easy to island hop to explore beautiful spots like Mykonos and Santorini.

Studies have shown that Americans don’t take all of their allotted vacation days from work, but with a deal like this—you really ought to consider ditching the desk and exploring Athens for a week. And the clock is ticking, so make your decision sooner rather than later.
