Every Tuesday, we’ll feature the best travel bargain we’ve seen all week right here, on our blog. Be the first to find out which deals make the cut by subscribing to our blog or signing up for our weekly deals newsletter.
The Deal: If the thought of a roundtrip flight for less than $80 makes you drool, grab some napkins. JetBlue just rolled out a pretty impressive one-day sale featuring fares to destinations in the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean starting at $29 each way before taxes and fees. With taxes, the cheapest possible flight you can get is $79.40 for a roundtrip fare from Long Beach to Las Vegas. Plane tickets don’t get much cheaper than that.
This deal offers a wide range of travel dates, too. Depart on any day of the week except Friday or Sunday from December 6 through February 15. If you have a ski trip, Florida beach getaway or Caribbean cruise penciled onto your calendar this winter, don’t overlook this deal. (There are plenty of cheap fares from select U.S. cities to Fort Lauderdale, a major cruise port.)
The Catch: Sorry, Santa. Holiday travel dates are excluded. You can’t take advantage of this offer if you plan to fly between December 16 and January 3.
The Competition: Southwest, Alaska and AirTran are also running fare sales to select destinations in the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean right now. What’s the best deal? Ultimately, it all depends on your route. We recommend checking prices for your particular itinerary on all four airline Web sites.
