Yes, you can fly to Florida for under $40 roundtrip. Yes, it is on ultra-low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines. But with other airlines charging at least $185 for connecting flights, you'll still save time and money by flying nonstop on Frontier from Raleigh to West Palm Beach for $39 roundtrip and adding any extras that you need.
Travel to Florida on Tuesdays, and from Florida Tuesdays and Thursdays, through mid-May. I found seats departing Raleigh RDU on Tuesday, April 30, returning from West Palm Beach PBI on Thursday, May 2. It's entirely possible to travel with just a personal item for a quick trip like this, but longer trips are available as well. Checked bag fees start at $30 each way. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $35 each way.
Can you only travel during the summer due to the kid's school schedule? You're in luck with this excellent summer fare on Southwest. Fly nonstop from Denver to Atlanta for $98 roundtrip in August. I found seats departing Denver DEN on Friday, August 16, returning from Atlanta ATL on Tuesday, August 20. Southwest is beating all competitors on this route for summer travel and includes two free checked bags.
Skip the 10+ hour drive along our southern border and fly nonstop from El Paso to San Diego for $117 roundtrip on Alaska Airlines. This is part of the latest Alaska Airlines sale and is also being matched by Southwest. Travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, from late April through mid-June. I found seats departing El Paso ELP on Saturday, April 27, returning from San Diego SAN on Tuesday, April 30. This books into Alaska's Main class so you'll have a wider selection of seats and more flexibility than its Saver fares.
One of the best deals in Sun Country's featured fares this week, fly nonstop from Minneapolis to San Francisco for $177 roundtrip. Daily flights are available from late April through early June. This price only includes a small personal item. If you need to bring more, pay $30 each way for either a checked bag or carry-on bag during booking.

It's rare that we see such a great deal with widespread availability throughout the year. Fly nonstop from New York to Seattle for $197 roundtrip on Alaska, American, Delta, or JetBlue. You'll not only have your choice of airline, but your choice of season as well.
Travel is available through mid-June, and from late August through the end of booking schedules in February 2020. Only peak summer travel and winter holidays are blacked out. I found seats on JetBlue departing New York JFK on Thursday, May 2, returning from Seattle SEA on Tuesday, May 7.
Fly from Chicago to Guatemala for $244 roundtrip on American. Travel on just a few scattered dates in April and May. You'll find more availability on United for a few dollars less, but United's Basic Economy fare is more restrictive and only includes a small personal item. Flying on American will allow a carry-on bag plus a personal item for this price. Both airlines have more availability for $276 roundtrip in the fall. I found this price on American departing Chicago ORD on Tuesday, April 30, returning from Guatemala on Tuesday, May 7.
Get your fill of Guinness next Thanksgiving! Fly nonstop from Philadelphia to Dublin for $330 roundtrip on American Airlines.
