It may be called the City of Lights, but a fare this cheap to Paris might fade out in a flash, so grab it ASAP. This March, fly nonstop from San Francisco to Paris-CDG, for $333 roundtrip on United. Limited departures are available on Monday through Wednesday in early March, with returns available through the 26th. As an example, I was able to find seats at this price departing SFO on Tuesday, March 10, with a return leg from CDG on Thursday, March 19, 2020.

As an example, I was able to find tickets at this price departing IAD on Monday, March 9, and leaving from NBO on Sunday, March 22, 2020. Most trips have short and easy layovers in Zurich, but some may require overnights, but hose itineraries can be avoided if you have a flexible travel window or are willing to make two connections.

Haven’t made plans for Valentine’s Day yet? Set up a date South of the Border. Here’s a lovely fare from United on nonstop flights between its Houston-IAH hub to Los Cabos for $190 roundtrip for a romantic rendezvous or for just a regular vacation through early May. Travel days will vary by week, but for the most part, this fare is available for midweek travel. Searching on United’s site, I found seats departing IAH on Tuesday, February 11, and returning from SJD on Thursday, February 20, 2020.

Visit our neighbor to the north with this price drop from Air Canada and partner United. Nonstop late summer flights from LA to Vancouver are on sale for $179 roundtrip between mid-August and the end of September.

Mostly valid for midweek travel only, but some Sunday returns might be still available.
Here's a solid deal for those looking to set up plans for their summer holiday well in advance. Fly nonstop from New York-LaGuardia to Charleston, South Carolina, for just $127 roundtrip. If you want to travel outside of summer, you're in luck too as this fare is available through mid-December. Departures are mostly available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at this price, but availability is easy to find. As an example, searching on Delta, I found a sample itinerary departing LGA on Tuesday, July 14, with a return leg from CHS on Tuesday, July 21, 2020. Unfortunately, dates overlapping the 4th of July are nearly double the price.
