Deal Alert: US Cities to Mexico and Peru From $180 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 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.
Are you in need of a warm vacation? Better yet, how does a discount of 80% on one-way tickets sound? We're seeing dirt-cheap prices (like sub-$200 nonstop round-trip fares) to Mexico, Peru and Colombia from major US cities.
All fares are on Interjet and in the "Ultra Light" class, which means you'll pay for checked bags and to pick a seat. But at these bargain prices, packing light may be worth it. And note that Interjet has some amazing legroom, a whole 34 inches of pitch on most seats on its Airbus A320s! The fares to Lima were first reported by Thrifty Traveler.
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.
