This Monday kicks off one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, while airports are sure to be buzzing, so will the airlines with Black Friday deals and sales. While we wait for those to come out later this week, here are some of the top fares that we've found so far today.
Today’s Top Fare 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.
Unlike the Eternal City, this fare deal won't last forever, so grab it while you can. Fly from Chicago-O'Hare to Rome, Italy, for $331 roundtrip for peak summer travel! Departures are available Monday through Friday, starting in late July through September. As an example, I was able to find seats at this price departing ORD on Tuesday, August 11, with a return leg from FCO on Friday, August 21, 2020. Get on this one quickly as seats are selling out fast!
Fly to Paris's "other" airport in style with this unbelievable business class deal from La Compagnie. Nonstop flights from Newark to Paris-Orly are pricing out at $999 roundtrip on the all biz class carrier for departures this winter. In my opinion, Orly is a more convenient and less crowded option than flying into Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and the top choice for those visiting the southern arrondissements of Paris. Daily availability opens up in late January with departures valid through mid-April. This a rare airfare where even Fridays and Sundays are in play and not subjected to weekend surcharges. As an example, I found seats at this price departing EWR on Sunday, February 9, with a return flight from ORY available on Sunday, February 16, 2020, overlapping with Valentine’s Day to whisk away on a romantic escape with a loved one.
Starting in April, hop across the Gulf of Mexico to Cancun on low-cost carrier Interjet for only $189 roundtrip, nearly $100 less than what American is offering during this travel window. Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday flights are available at this price between April 1 and June 29, 2020. If you want to celebrate Cinco De Mayo south of the border, I found a nonstop itinerary on Interjet departing MIA on Friday, May 1, and returning from CUN on Sunday, May 10, 2020, for the listed price.
When you can travel across the country for less than $120 roundtrip, that falls into the “better book right now” category. Here’s a fare that certainly fits the bill: jet from Atlanta over to San Francisco for only $111 roundtrip on American Airlines. Tickets at this price are bookable starting early January with scattered dates through March 9, 2020, mostly on Monday, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. For a sample booking at this price, I found seats leaving ATL on Saturday, January 23, with a return flight from SFO on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. This is one of those rare domestic fares that requires a roundtrip purchase, so you’re out of luck if you only need a one-way at this rock bottom rate.
While we wait for Southwest to post its weekly sale, that doesn’t mean the low-cost carrier isn’t offering some sweet unadvertised price drops. Here’s one between San Francisco to Denver for $98 roundtrip, for example. Nonstop departures are open starting as early as next week with seats open on most days through March 4, 2020. On Southwest’s site, the only place you can purchase tickets directly, I found seats departing SFO on Friday, January 10, and returning from DEN on Monday, January 13, 2020. Perfect for an extended weekend getaway.
Take the shuttle down from Boston to Washington DC-National for just $117 roundtrip. Take your pick from American, JetBlue, or Delta Air Lines to take you to the nation's capital, and with multiple departures during the day, you should be able to find a flight that best suits your travel needs. This Monday through Thursday and Saturday fare is available starting in early December through May 20, 2020. Searching JetBlue, I found seats at this price departing BOS on Saturday, March 14, and returning from DCA on Monday, March 16, 2020. Peak holiday dates blacked out.
¡Muy Caliente! While Cancun, Mexico City, and Los Cabos seem to get all the flight deals, it's nice to see other Mexican hot spots get some fantastic fares too. Take this price drop from VivaAerobus as an example, fly from Los Angeles to Guadalajara for just $171 roundtrip this winter. Tickets at this price are available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturdays from late February through April 1, 2020. Search the Viva site, I found seats available leaving LAX on Wednesday, March 18, and returning from GDL on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. Aeromexico was price matching at $186 roundtrip, but fares look like they’ve jumped in price, but it may be worth a second look to see if they will come back again.
Go from the Golden State to golden sands with this deal to Maui on either Hawaiian or Alaska Airlines. Fly nonstop from Oakland to Kahului for $278 roundtrip this winter or spring. Departures are valid on Monday and Thursdays starting on December 31 through May 28. Searching on Hawaiian, I saw tickets departing OAK on Monday, February 10, and returning from OGG on Tuesday, February 18, 2020. Other dates during this travel window are widely available. Southwest is price matching, so if you’re a heavy packer, take advantage of their generous baggage policy and take along two bags full of swimsuits and sunscreen.
Here’s an outstanding offer from Air Canada. Fly from Dallas-DFW to Shanghai, China, for just $372 roundtrip. Daily travel at this price is available starting in late January and valid for travel through March 19, 2020. As an example, I found seats departing DFW on Wednesday, March 4, and returning from PVG on Friday, March 13, 2020. This fare is best booked through Air Canada’s website, as other third-party sites might be more expensive. Take note that most itineraries will require a long layover or overnight in Canada to receive this reduced rate.
Do you know the way to San Jose? JetBlue and Delta surely do with this fantastic fare to the Silicon Valley city. Flights from New York-JFK to San Jose, California, are available for just $197 roundtrip on select dates this winter. Travel is possible any day of the week except Saturday between January 8 and February 29. For an example of this fare deal, I found seats departing JFK on Friday, January 31, with a return leg from SJC on Sunday, February 9, 2020. One-way fares are available for $99 if you want to mix-and-match amongst both airlines for more departure options.
