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 the 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.
Flights across the United States are now on sale starting at just $20 one-way on Frontier. The ultra-low-cost carrier is offering these extremely low fares to both members of the airline's discount club program, Discount Den, and even non-members.
While the $20 fares are somewhat widespread, it's important to keep in mind that all Frontier flights are essentially booked into basic economy. Still, travelers looking to nab these cheap flights might be able to purchase a checked bag and seat assignment while still paying less than on legacy carriers.
As previously mentioned, $20 fares are available to non-members, however, there are far more dates if you join the Frontier's discount club. The Discount Den program costs $59.99 a year and allows members to access cheap flights like the current $20 fares. Additionally, Discount Den members can bring along children for free with Frontier's kids-fly-free promo.
If you want to take advantage of this promo, you need to act fast as Frontier's $20 fares end today.
To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. To book these deals you must complete your booking through Frontier's official website.
