Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

More deals to Mexico this week! In early June, we found some good deals on flights to Cancun from the East Coast and Midwest starting at $264 round-trip. This week, Delta and US Airways are offering some more cheap flights from a bunch of cities on the West Coast, including Portland (PDX), Sacramento (SMF), San Jose (SJC) and Santa Ana (SNA).

Fares from all of these cities start at $262 and are available in August and September. Most of the flights, including Portland, Sacramento and Santa Ana are available on Delta, with a few others like San Jose appearing on US Airways.
