Deal Of The Day: Honolulu From $491 RT
It's been a long time since we have seen airfares out of Dallas to Honolulu for under $499 roundtrip. This could be a very short lived deal, so you need to act fast. You could take off as early as tomorrow. Travel is valid between now and December 10, returning no later than December 17, or depart January 10 thru February 6, 2015. You will need to fly Monday through Wednesday staring in the first week of March through May 13, 2015.
Be flexible starting in February thru May, the cheapest days will be traveling mid-week This airfare was valid as of 6 am CST December 2, 2014.
Hot Deals All Weekend Long!
Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are here all weekend long, and you can get a jump on these cheap seats today! If you remember to be flexible, you will find bargain airfares galore to Mexico, San Juan, Florida, and from select USA cities you will find great deals to Hawaii.
These cheap airfares seem to be regionalized. We are seeing many East Coast cities on sale to San Juan, Puerto Rico. When it comes to Mexico, from Denver, we are seeing both Cancun and Los Cabos are steals at only $279 roundtrip or less. We are also seeing San Diego, Los Angeles, San Jose, and San Francisco to Los Cabos selling cheap for winter travel.
From San Jose and Oakland, you can fly to Honolulu or Maui for only $379 roundtrip or less. From Boston and New York City, you can fly to the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica for only $389 roundtrip or less. That's almost half price compared to many other US cities. Once you land in Liberia, you are only about 30 minutes away from some great 90 degree beaches. That beats the cold of the Big Apple!
For USA travel our hottest airfares and seats are very limited. Currently, Philadelphia to Las Vegas for travel in late January is selling for only $85 roundtrip. Folks, these airfares are less than two cents per mile! To see our Holy Cow Batman Las Vegas story, and to book online, please click here.
Another USA travel deal that will fly way on February 11, 2015 is Dallas to Memphis for only $85 roundtrip. You may even find this cheap airfare available for Christmas and New Year's travel. The bad news is that on January 5, 2015 Delta will pull all nonstop flights on this route, and the same thing goes for Frontier Airlines starting January 7, 2015. This leaves only one nonstop carrier left, which will be American Airlines. If you can depart between now and January 3, 2015 you do have a good chance at snagging one of these $85 roundtrip airfares. Starting in 2015, this same airfare will more than double to $200 roundtrip. So if you have been craving Memphis barbeque or a day with Elvis, you had better act fast!
We strongly suggest you act now on the Philadelphia to Las Vegas, or Dallas to Memphis airfares. Below are some other Black Friday airfares you can book today that can knock your socks off.

Cheap Winter And Spring Airfares To Europe
This week we checked the airfares from many US cities to Europe for the next 5 months. For the winter season, 6 US cities stood out as having some of the cheapest airfares to Europe. For travel starting April 13, 2015, San Francisco comes out smelling like a rose for cheap airfares to Europe for spring 2015 travel.
For example, departing San Francisco on April 20, and returning April 27, 2015 to Amsterdam, many international carriers want over $1,477. However, today you can go for as little as $861 roundtrip. That's over $600 per person in savings!
You also need to compare the airfares from your hometown airport to one of the 7 cheap gateway cities listed below like New York City, Washington D.C., Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. You can either drive to the nearest cheaper airport, or just purchase a cheap roundtrip ticket to one of the gateway departure cities. By doing so you could rack up big savings over flying out of your local hometown airport to Europe.
For example, Dallas to Rome departing February 3, and returning February 10, 2015, the cheapest airfare roundtrip on American Airlines $1,447 roundtrip. However, out of Houston, a close drive or flight from Dallas, the airfare to Rome is only $669 roundtrip. Yes, its an inconvenience to drive or fly to Houston, but come one...$700 bucks, is $700 bucks! A family of 4 traveling to Europe during Spring Break could save over $2,800. Folks, that's not chump change. As a matter of fact, it is like getting a 50% discount or a 2 for 1 airfare deal.
Here are just a few sample airfares we found for travel during the first 3 months of 2015. We think they are all are winners compared to the prices to Europe from other US cities.
- $719 RT- St. Petersburg, Moscow
- $779 RT- Dublin
- $829 RT- Istanbul, Milan
- $959 RT- Bucharest, Budapest
- $999 RT- Barcelona, Madrid
- $1,019 RT- Amsterdam
- $1,039 RT- Paris
- $1,159 RT- Athens, Berlin, Munich, Rome
