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.

Flight deals to Las Vegas seem to pop up quite often — especially for East Coast travelers — and today American and United are offering cheap flights for Sin City-bound flyers, for travel dates later this fall. The cheapest flights aren’t available from all cities, but there are quite a few with some low prices.

Some of the discounted rates we found include Washington (DCA) to Las Vegas (LAS) from $186, and Philadelphia (PHL) to Las Vegas (LAS) from $199. Earlier today, there were also quite a few deals to Boston, though most of those are no longer available. Still, you might be able to find lower-priced flights on very select dates.
