Update: Deal Dead!
I know I have a large NY based readership so I wanted to highlight this deal which I found from The Flight Deal.
You can fly from Newark to St. Lucia on US Airways for only $200 roundtrip and it’s available in the winter and early spring next year! This flight normally goes for at least double so this is quite the savings. It’s even better then the $300 flights to the Caribbean I highlighted months ago.
I HIGHLY recommend reading the post by the Flight Deal on how to search for this fare on ITA Matrix. Click here for that post.
Congrats on those who can take advantage!
Via the Flight Deal, there is a fare war right now on American and US airways offering $300 flights to the Caribbean, including Aruba, Cayman Islands, The Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Punta Cana and much more.
The best part is most of these deals are good for travel this summer/fall in addition to over long weekends like Labor Day, MLK day and President’s Day. If your from NY you remember how bad the winters were this year – book your escape for next year now!
Another key benefit to book now and think later: American Airlines offers a 24 hour free hold on tickets while US Airways allows you to cancel for free within 24 hours.
These flights are usually a lot more especially around the long holiday weekends closer to $500-$600 if not more! You lock in cheap flights today, then book the hotel rooms later. In fact, if your flying to Aruba for example, you could pick up a Club Carlson or Hyatt Credit card and get 2 nights free there!
