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.

US airlines have dropped prices for flights to Cancun, with fares starting as low as $229 round-trip for departures from October 2016 through April 2017. American, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest and United all seem to be offering these low fares from many US cities. If you’re flying from a major hub, routes seem to be nonstop, but if you’re coming from a smaller city expect a connection. Search for flights from your city on Google Flights and then proceed to the airlines’ sites to complete booking.
