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 making it easy to travel for cheap this fall. The carrier’s promoting one of its two-day flash sales for fall travel, this time with fares starting at $39 one-way and $78 round-trip. In order to take advantage of these reduced fares, you must book by October 5 at the earlier of 11:59pm ET or local time. Some of these flash sale fares are for travel around the Thanksgiving holiday, which could be worth taking advantage of if the dates work for you.

The terms and conditions state that you must travel between October 17 and December 14, 2017, however, we found some dates with low fares beyond that window. In addition the terms state that there are blackout dates for all cities between November 16 and 28, and for New York only (JFK, LGA, EWR and HPN), there are blackout dates between November 7 and 13.

There are a number of cities included in this flash sale, so it’ll be best to check out JetBlue’s page. 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.
