To book this deal, start your search by heading to Google Flights, which will likely yield multiple flight options.

For example, travelers heading from New York City to Tampa the last week of October can choose between basic economy flights on Delta and JetBlue.

In this case, it would be a better deal to pick the Delta flight since Delta's basic economy includes carry-on luggage while JetBlue's Blue Basic does not.

In searching for this deal, you may come across basic economy fares on Delta, United, Breeze and JetBlue.

Excluding Delta, these airlines only allow passengers to bring one small personal item that fits underneath the seat in front of them while charging between $25 and $35 each way to check a full-size carry-on at the gate.

To accommodate your luggage needs, we recommend booking a Delta basic economy fare when available for your route.

Maximize your purchase

If you book this deal, use a credit card that earns bonus points on airfare purchases, including The Platinum Card® from American Express (5 points per dollar on airfare booked directly with the airline, on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year) or the Citi Prestige® Card for 5 points per dollar on airfare. Both the Citi Premier® Card and Chase Sapphire Reserve earn 3 points per dollar on airfare, in addition to the American Express® Gold Card, which earns 3 points per dollar on airfare when booked directly with the airline. Or try the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card for 2 points per dollar on travel. Check out this post for more ways to maximize your airfare purchases.

Bottom line

This deal for round-trip flights to Florida from various U.S. cities for under $200 includes last-minute availability, though you can save now by planning ahead and using this deal to book a flight into 2023.

Although we think this deal will be around slightly longer than usual, the low price point is sure to attract travelers wanting to save money, so don't hesitate if you're interested.
