Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, 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 or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

JetBlue is at it again with some truly incredible deals. You can score flights along the East Coast for as little as $66 round-trip, or, perhaps even better, transcon flights can be had for as little as $134 round-trip. These deals aren’t part of a formal sale and could disappear just as quickly as they appeared. So, you’ll want to jump on these deals as soon as possible before they’re gone. The best way to find availability is to search Google Flights for the routes and dates and then click through to JetBlue’s website to book. Act quick! These fares won’t last long.
