You’ll want to act fast on this one – United has launched a sale on flights to Australia for under $550 roundtrip! This appears to be an attack on Delta, as most of the lowest fares are departing from Delta hubs (Atlanta, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, and Detroit), and flights are available to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Here’s an example of fares between Atlanta and Melbourne for July: You can search flexible dates on ITA Matrix, and book directly with United. If you book with United, you have 24 hours to cancel completely free of charge, so if you’re at Continue reading Roundtrip Flights to Australia: ~$550
One of the best sites for up-to-the-minute travel deals is The Flight Deal, and they recently posted details about a huge sale on flights to Asia, including Bali, Seoul, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Kuala Lumpur for anywhere between $350-$600 roundtrip! These fares are available from a wide variety of cities in the US, so there’s a good chance that you’ll find a deal from a city near you. Most of the best prices I’m seeing are in March-April, and September-December. For example, here are the fares between Charlotte and Seoul: As The Flight Deal recommends, using Google Flights Continue reading Roundtrip Flights to Asia Under $500!
United has launched a sale for flights to Las Vegas from Charlotte, NC for as low as $164 roundtrip. Vegas is definitely a destination where it’s tough to find flights returning on Sunday for a reasonable price (because everyone who goes to Vegas wants to go for a long weekend and fly home on Sunday, so airlines jack up Sunday flight prices), but if you can be a bit flexible with dates, it’s possible to find a reasonable itinerary with this sale. Fares are available through March and April, 2015 but dates are relatively sparse. Spring weather in Vegas is Continue reading Flights to Las Vegas from Charlotte: $164 roundtrip!
Hot on the heels of a deal I posted this morning for flights from Boston and Baltimore to Copenhagen, London, and Reykjavik for $99 each way, another sale has launched for flights to Helsinki, Finland, from a number of cities, including Charlotte, for as low as $666 roundtrip. United is attacking American Airlines/US Airways hubs, which include Phoenix, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Miami, and similar prices can be found from all of those cities. The best fares are available in late November, or from late December through late March:
A relatively new budget airline called WOW Air, based in Reykjavik, Iceland just announced that they are starting service to the US in early 2015. They’ve been around since 2011, calling themselves, “The airline with the biggest smiles and the lowest prices.” Over hte past 3 years, WOW Air has been flying from Iceland to about 20 cities throughout Europe, but they are now launching flights to the US – at this point, just to Boston and Baltimore (BWI). Flights to Boston begin on March 26, 2015 and flights to Baltimore begin on June 3, 2015, and the introductory fares Continue reading Flights to Copenhagen, London, and Iceland for $99 each way
American and US Airways have dropped prices on flights to San Jose, CA from Charlotte, NC to $288 roundtrip, and other airlines are matching the prices. San Jose is just south of San Francisco, and just north of the beautiful area of Monterrey and Carmel. The Mrs. Guru and I spent some time in Monterrey and Carmel in June, and it’s definitely worth the drive (about 2 hours from San Francisco, 1 hour and 15 minutes from San Jose). This sale is only valid for a pretty narrow range of dates in early December, but if you can make it Continue reading Flights to San Jose, CA from Charlotte – $285 roundtrip
Things have been a bit busy lately, so I haven’t had a chance to post recently, but here’s an awesome deal to get back into the swing! Flights to Bali from Philadelphia are as low as $537 roundtrip – and that includes all taxes and fees! Even if you have to factor in an extra flight to get to Philadelphia from your location, you can likely keep your total under $675 or so. Bali is an incredible destination – lots of beautiful beaches, but lots of culture and places to explore as well. The Mrs. Guru and I spent a Continue reading Flights to Bali, Indonesia – $537 roundtrip
This fare tends to pop up from time to time, but hasn’t been around for a while. It usually only lasts for a day or two, so you’ll want to act fast. Delta has dropped the price of roundtrip flights to Seattle from Charlotte (or vice versa) to $232! It’s pretty rare these days to find cross-country flights for under $250, so don’t count on this dropping any lower. The fares are available on a pretty widespread set of dates, from now through July, 2015. The downside to this fare is that it’s only being offered on the least-desirable days Continue reading Flights to Seattle from Charlotte: $232 roundtrip
Emirates Airline has launched a sale for travel between New York and Milan – even though it may seem strange for Emirates to fly between New York and Italy, since they’re based in Dubai, the flight does continue on from Milan to Dubai…but this is a fantastic opportunity to score a great deal just on the flights to Milan. The Mrs. Guru and I were just in Milan a few weeks ago on our way back from Greece, so stay tuned for more details on that trip. The one catch with this sale is that it is specifically targeted to Continue reading Flights to Milan from New York – $499 roundtrip!
If you’ve been dreaming of a Caribbean vacation, this deal to beautiful Antigua could be your answer. United has dropped prices on flights to Antigua from Charlotte to as low as $271 roundtrip, which is an incredible price for such an exotic destination. Flights are available between January and May, 2015, so this could be the perfect winter getaway. The average high even in January and February is about 84°F (29°C) and the average low is about 72°F (22°C). The only negative to these flights is that on the outbound, the flights require an overnight layover in Newark. So even Continue reading Flights to Antigua from Charlotte – $271 roundtrip
