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. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
JetBlue brought back its discounts on one-way flights this week. Today’s fare sale covers travel this winter to a variety of destinations, with fares starting at $34 each way. Although you’ll find the cheapest fares to destinations that aren’t quite as desirable in the dead of winter, such as Boston to Buffalo, there are nonetheless some great opportunities for deals on appealing travel destinations, including ski resorts and the beach.
Travelers originating in the Bay Area (SFO) can find flights to Las Vegas (LAS) from $66 round-trip. JetBlue also has quite a few East Coast flights on sale. For example, you can fly from New York (JFK) to Charleston (CHS) from $118 round-trip, or you can head to the likes of Bermuda (from $318 round-trip) or Grand Cayman (from $325 round-trip). If you’re looking for a chance to hit the slopes this winter, flights from JFK to Reno (RNO), which has easy access to Lake Tahoe, are available for less than $200 round-trip.
