When the weather cools off and kids go back to school, travel demand dips and airlines cut fares– sometimes drastically– to keep all those planes full.
Remember last week when we saw $57 round trips in the California corridor?
Well, this week I’m uncovering similar deeeeep discounts. How about just $75 round trip between San Francisco and Dallas? Or $99 round trip between San Francisco and Chicago?
And that’s on United Airlines, not one of the ultra-low-cost carriers like Spirit or Frontier.
That’s what I’m seeing from United this week.
Granted, those $75 or $99 round trip fares are those distasteful “basic economy” fares. That might work for someone who is not carrying on a big bag or someone who does not want to book a specific seat.
But you can “upgrade” to a regular economy fare for just $40 more, or just $119-$139 round trip. Regular economy fares include carry on bags and seat selection and frequent flyer miles.
And $119-$139 roundtrip between SFO and Dallas or Chicago is a remarkable deal! It’s currently available for trips during the last week of October and the first week of November.
That fare (and many others like it) may not be there when you go to book– that’s just the way it is during the “shoulder season” when demand is low. If you see a fare that looks good BOOK IT because it’s not going to last.
We’ll keep an eye out for more low fares like this in the coming fall and winter months… so sign up to TravelSkills email alerts to get the deals first! Sign up here for one email-per-day updates!
