Today's Top 10 Airfare Deals
Fares are subject to change at any time. If you are interested in any of these fares, we recommend you book soon to avoid a missed bargain. All domestic flights work in the reverse direction as well.
Get spooky in Spokane on Halloween with this ultra-low fare on Frontier. Fly on a few scattered Tuesdays and Thursdays through mid-November, nonstop, from Denver to Spokane for just $29 roundtrip. This price drop is part of Frontier's latest penny fare sale and is the lowest price you'll ever see for a domestic flight. I found a flight departing Denver DEN on Halloween, Thursday, October 31, returning from Spokane GEG on Tuesday, November 5. Wear your costume onboard since any bag larger than a small personal item will cost an additional $30-$40 each way.
Flights between these two midwestern metropolises are regularly less than $100 roundtrip once again thanks to Sun Country Airlines. But you don't need to fly the ultra-low-cost carrier for a great price. Fly nonstop on American Airlines from Chicago to Minneapolis for $87 roundtrip on several travel dates in November and December. I found availability departing Chicago ORD on Friday, November 8, returning from Minneapolis MSP on Monday, November 10. Perfect for a quick weekend away and you can even schedule the return flight on Monday early enough to make it back to work on time.
South Beach sure will sound nice in January and February when you're slushing around the streets of NYC. Book your ticket now to fly nonstop from New York to Miami for $117 roundtrip on American or Delta. Travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from January through early March. I found this price departing New York LGA on Wednesday, January 8, returning from Miami MIA on Tuesday, January 14. And if you have another Floridian city in mind, you'll find similar fares from all NYC airports to pretty much all airports in Florida for winter travel.
Have you planned your February break yet? While many flights get jacked up in price for this popular travel period, we found this great fare from Washington D.C. to San Jose, Costa Rica for $267 roundtrip on Volaris. To book, just select the promo code or enter code VUELA55 on volaris.com and a 55% discount will apply to the base fare for February travel. I found this great price available departing Washington D.C. IAD on Tuesday, February 18, returning from San Jose SJO on Wednesday, February 26.
It's great to see flights from the Bay Area to Hawaii are now less than $300 fairly often. With newly added service from Southwest and Hawaiian Airlines introducing Basic Economy, we'll probably see these great fares stick for off-season travel. Fly nonstop from Oakland to Maui for $278 roundtrip on Alaska, Hawaiian, or Southwest. And if you prefer to fly from San Jose (SJC) or to Honolulu (HNL), you'll find the same price. Travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from late November through early June, excluding holidays.
Southwest is currently only selling tickets through early April, but it's the best value since two free checked bags are included. I found seats departing Oakland OAK on Tuesday, November 26, returning from Maui OGG on Thursday, December 5.
Take a break from the lake and head down to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean this winter. No passport required. Fly from Cleveland to St. Thomas for $279 roundtrip on Delta or United. Travel on scattered dates from January through May, with more availability on American Airlines for about $20 more. I found flights departing Cleveland CLE on Thursday, January 8, returning from St. Thomas STT on Thursday, January 16. You're usually better off with Delta or American since United's Basic Economy is more restrictive and only includes a small personal item, whereas Delta and American include a carry-on bag in all fares.
Here's an exciting new nonstop route on Canadian leisure carrier Air Transat. Starting next June, fly nonstop from San Diego to Montreal for $376 roundtrip. While you'll find lower prices for connecting flights in the fall/winter, this is a great price for nonstop travel during the peak summer travel season. Travel to Montreal on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, and travel from Montreal on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays.
I found tickets for this price departing San Diego SAN on the inaugural flight, Tuesday, June 16, returning from Montreal YUL on Sunday, June 21. And if you're in Quebec looking for a nonstop flight to southern California, it's even cheaper. Nonstop flights from Montreal to San Diego are selling for $431 CAD roundtrip ($329 USD).
Fly from Boston to Tel Aviv for $586 roundtrip on Iberia. Travel on scattered dates from November through early March, excluding holidays. I found seats departing Boston BOS on Tuesday, January 7, returning from Tel Aviv TLV on Saturday, January 18. The average January temperature in Tel Aviv is 64° F. I'll take that over whatever kind of weather comes to Boston this winter.
Here's a route we never expected to drop this low. Fly from Kansas City to Cape Town for $637 roundtrip on United. This price can be found on a handful of dates in late February and March and you'll find slightly higher fares for other fall/winter travel dates. I found seats departing Kansas City MCI on Wednesday, February 19, returning from Cape Town CPT on Monday, March 2.
The southernmost city in the world is the gateway to Antarctica and it's rarely this cheap to get there. We've been seeing some great price drops on flights deep into South America recently, including LATAM flights from Los Angeles to Ushuaia for $791 roundtrip. Travel on scattered dates in late November, December, and March. I found seats departing Los Angeles LAX on Thursday, November 28, returning from Ushuaia USH on Sunday, December 15. It's best to go for a few weeks since it is such a long flight and you'll have time to explore a little bit of Buenos Aires on the way. Tierra del Fuego is one of the most beautiful regions on earth and I definitely recommend you add it to your bucket list.
