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.
We found some more fantastic fares to Miami, with deals available on American and US Airways, as well as Delta. Last week we wrote about the $106 fares from Chicago and Dallas for the upcoming fall and early winter, and this week you still have time to grab a flight for a beach-weekend this fall.
You’ll find even lower fares from Atlanta, Dallas and other cities that are closer to Florida, but if you’re looking to travel from the Northeast, the best available fare is $126 from Baltimore (BWI) on American. There are also some good deals available from Boston (starting at $151 on American) and New York – LGA (starting at $166 on Delta). If you’re traveling from New York, you’ll find the best availability on Delta, with low fares available between September and December.
