Deal Alert: Flights to Puerto Rico From $155 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 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 Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Puerto Rico is not only open for tourism, but there are many reasons to visit right now. There are tons of hotels you could stay at using points, and since PR is a US territory, Americans don’t even need a passport to enter.
Aguadilla, a town in PR's northwestern tip, is best known for its top-notch surfing and beaches. And right now, flights from several US cities to Aguadilla are on sale from $155 round-trip, including nonstop options. The discounted fares are being offered by JetBlue and United and are available starting in September 2018. Do note that while the discounted fares we found are for regular economy (opposed to basic economy), that may not always be the case.
There aren't any tricks to finding these deals. Just head to Google Flights and plug in your desired departure city. After finding the dates that work best for you, book with the airline directly or with an OTA such as Expedia or Priceline.
