Sample fights

This is your lucky day because this is a two-in-one deal, featuring round-trip flights mostly under $300 to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Flights included in this deal are:

  • Nashville/St. Louis to Providenciales, starting at $261.
  • Newark/Columbus/Pittsburgh to Providenciales, starting at $270.
  • Boston to Providenciales, starting at $281.
  • New York City to Providenciales, starting at $285.
  • Philadelphia/Fort Lauderdale to Providenciales, starting at $288.
  • Nashville to Punta Cana, starting at $291.
  • Jacksonville to Punta Cana, starting at $303.
  • New York City to Punta Cana, starting at $308.

To search this deal, start by browsing Google Flights, where you'll find a nonstop flight departing from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Providenciales International Airport (PLS) for $270 round-trip the second week of May.

This particular flight is for United's basic economy class, which does not include any luggage beyond one personal item. Therefore, you may want to consider upgrading to economy for one carry-on bag, but you'll still have to pay $70 for checked luggage.

If you're looking to head to the Dominican Republic, you can find a similarly priced flight also from EWR, for just over $300 in late September, flying JetBlue.

This sale fare is for JetBlue's Blue Basic, which only allows travelers to bring one personal item that can fit under the seat in front of you and also charges $60 for your first checked bag, just $10 less than United for a similar fare type. Any full-size carry-on bag brought to the gate will incur a $65 fee (for the first two bags) to be checked.

Should you find a flight via this deal on either American or Delta, note that both of their basic economy fares include one free carry-on bag. So, depending on your desired route, it may be worth it to prioritize flying either AA or Delta to save more money overall without having to upgrade to carry on a full-sized item.

For example, New York City-based travelers could consider this flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to PLS for $275 round-trip, departing just a few days prior to the aforementioned flight from EWR to PLS for $270 round-trip the second week of May. By adjusting your travel dates slightly, you could save more than $50 by flying Delta instead of United in basic economy.
