Chicago – Barcelona $302 Roundtrip on Air Canada

By Mapics /

In my opinion, fall is the best time to visit Spain, and with a fare deal this low I think you'll agree. Avoid the crowds and save big by waiting until summer season is over and fly from Chicago-O’Hare to Barcelona for $302 roundtrip on Air Canada. Departures are available on Monday and Tuesdays starting from October 22 through late December; returns are available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays. Fares book into the Basic Economy fare bucket, so pack lightly or pay for a checked bag, because the "Standard" fare is a bit steep at $489 roundtrip. As an example, I found tickets at this price departing ORD on Monday, November 11, with a return leg from BCN on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. Book directly on Air Canada’s website to get this price as other booking sites are charging $27 more.

Orlando – Los Angeles $187 Roundtrip on Delta, American, or United

By Chones /

Travel from Disney World to Disneyland with this great deal from Delta, American, or United Airlines. Fly nonstop from Orlando to Los Angeles for $187 roundtrip from late August through early February. Flights are available daily except Sunday, but you will have the most luck with mid-week departures. Availability is a bit scattered in November and some weeks in October but if you play around you should be able to find something that works for you. Alternatively, try splitting the ticket into two separate one-way itineraries amongst the airlines for broader availability. On United, I found tickets at this price departing MCO on Wednesday, October 23, with a return leg from LAX on Monday, October 28, 2019.
