Deal Alert: Flights to the Caribbean From $235 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 11 p.m. 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.
Yes the fall foliage is beautiful, but who’s going to complain about Caribbean blue waters?!
Fights to the Caribbean Islands from various US cities are starting at $235 round-trip. We’re seeing these fares available on JetBlue, Delta and American Airlines as soon as September and into April 2020.
Availability varies by city, so you may have to play around with the dates on Google flights. Additionally, these fares are in basic economy which means extra baggage, seat selection and ticket changes will come with an additional fee (or not be allowed at all). But who needs a checked bag when all you need is a carry-on full of swim suits?!
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. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
