Any interest in adding a trip to your summer calendar, and to one of the world’s best beaches at that? This might be a deal for you to consider. Right now, there’s immediate availability for sub-$300 round-trip flights to the beautiful Caribbean destination of Turks and Caicos.

For several cities, flights in that price range are departing as soon as this week; they run through much of the fall and into the first few months of 2023 as well.

While these deals generally involve flights departing from the East Coast, Scott’s Cheap Flights was the first to point out that you can also get early 2023 flights for less than $400 from the West Coast — namely, out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Premium memberships for Scott's Cheap Flights start at $49 annually for economy deals; the Elite memberships start at $199 for premium economy, business- and first-class alerts.

Deal basics

Airlines: American Airlines, United Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
Routes and travel dates: New York, Pittsburgh, Miami and Nashville to Providenciales from summer 2022 through spring 2023; Los Angeles to Providenciales from January 2023.
How to book: Directly with the airlines or with Google Flights.

Flights to Providenciales International Airport (PLS) are available for around $300 or less starting now. If you can find a hotel with affordable and immediate availability, pack your bags ASAP. When I wrote this story midday Wednesday, I found options for flights departing from New York City on Wednesday afternoon.

Depending on your departure city, there’s a good chance you’ll have a connection at Miami International Airport (MIA).

West Coast travelers who want to take advantage of this deal will pay a bit more (not a huge surprise considering the length of the flights). Still, those flying from LAX can get to this iconic Caribbean destination at a far lower cost than is often available — less than $400 round-trip.

By and large, all three U.S. legacy carriers have availability at these price points, so there’s a good chance you can book on your favorite airline, depending on the travel dates. Also, as you’ll see, the deals don’t include all major hubs but do include some more medium-size airports, so if even you don’t see your hometown airport listed, it might be worth checking prices.

Here are just a few of the routes and prices we found:

  • New York to Providenciales for $287 on United.
  • Nashville to Providenciales for $284 on Delta.
  • Miami to Providenciales for $299 on American.
  • Columbus, Ohio, to Providenciales for $304 on a combination of American and Delta.
  • Los Angeles to Providenciales for $398 on American.

As mentioned, one of the exciting parts of this deal is the immediate, affordable nature of some of these round-trip flights. For instance, I'm writing this on July 20, and I just pulled an itinerary for July 21 out of LaGuardia Airport (LGA) on United. In both directions, you’ll have to make a connection at United's East Coast hub of Dulles International Airport (IAD) in the Washington, D.C., area.

There’s also availability throughout the summer from a number of other cities. Is this week too soon to book? Here’s a late August option out of Nashville International Airport (BNA) aboard Delta. Not surprisingly, you’ll stop at the airline's hub in Atlanta on the outbound and return trips.

It is, of course, a much shorter journey for those departing from South Florida. Many American flights to Turks and Caicos originate in Miami, so those travelers can reach Turks in less than two hours.

As mentioned, for Los Angeles travelers, the sub-$400 availability really becomes widely available early next year. This could make Turks and Caicos a nice post-holiday getaway, or an option to consider for spring break travel in 2023.

This itinerary begins with a red-eye journey to Miami, followed by a short hop to the Caribbean. On the return trip, you’ll spend most of the day on the island then take a late-afternoon flight to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT); you'll then have a quick layover and a late-night flight back to the West Coast.

Bottom line

If you’ve been looking for the right opportunity to enjoy all Turks and Caicos has to offer, this might be a deal to consider. Whether you're based on the East Coast or West Coast, this deal could be a great last-minute addition to your summer travel calendar. It can also add some excitement to autumn, or help you get a head start on planning for next spring.
