Deal Alert: Many Smaller East Coast Cities to Lima From $369 Round-Trip
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
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. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. 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.
Several smaller cities are offering discounted fares to beautiful Lima, Peru — a city where we don't often see many deals. Smaller cities throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic states are showing round-trip fares to Lima from $369 with Delta.
As noted, the lowest fares are for flights departing from smaller cities we don't usually see deals from. Note that not all cities included in this deal are listed in the examples, however, they are included in the "Routes" section below.
The easiest way to find these deals is to search for cheap dates via Google Flights. Then click through to Orbitz, Expedia or the airline directly to book your tickets.
