Cheap Flights to the Caribbean
- $231 — Dallas to Grand Cayman (R/T, incl. Tax) – From experience, I can confidently state that Grand Cayman has some of the clearest, beautiful water on the planet. Snorkel, dive or just lounge on the beach at about 50% off the regular cost of this roundtrip fare.
- $256 — Miami to Curacao Nonstop (R/T, incl. Tax) – Curacao is often one of the most expensive Caribbean destinations to fly to, making this deal quite a catch at nearly $200 off the normal price.
Cheap Flights to Orlando
Consistently one of the top searched destinations on Fly.com, not much needs to be said about Orlando. These great fares are the first step to a fun-filled vacation at parks like Disney World, Universal Studios or SeaWorld:
- $136 — Charlotte to Orlando Nonstop (Roundtrip, incl. Tax) — Short flight, but great price!
- $160 — Chicago to Orlando Nonstop (Roundtrip, incl. Tax) – Competition among carriers on this popular route has driven the price down to up to $150 off regular roundtrip prices.
- $200 — Austin to Orlando Nonstop (Roundtrip, incl. Tax) – It looks like some fares from yesterday’s JetBlue 1-day sale have been extended. Save $50 on regular prices and use it at the theme parks.
With the money saved on airfare, grab a room at a hotel near Universal Studios for just $49 per night from Travelzoo. This deal is available into summer and saves 60% on normal rates.
Other Top Domestic Flight Deals
There are several discounted fares that do not fit the above themes, but are just too darn incredible not to mention. Without further ado, here are some of the favorites from our very own Fly.com fare experts:
- $118 — Houston to New Orleans Nonstop (Roundtrip, incl. Tax) - Mardi Gras is over, but New Orleans is always a party. This fare is at least $50 off regular prices.
- $188 — Minneapolis to Las Vegas Nonstop (Roundtrip, incl. Tax) – Spirit just launched service out of Minneapolis, which dropped the price over $100 for flights to Las Vegas over the summer. Competition is tight, so look for other carriers to lower prices as well.
- $220-$238 — NYC to San Francisco Nonstop (R/T, incl. Tax) (or vice versa) – Trendy carrier Virgin America typically offers up this route in their weekly sale for $260-$280, so scoop up this unadvertised deal before it’s gone.
