You can escape to the California sunshine from 11 cities starting at just $78 round-trip in coach!

I found cheap flights to California on American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, Spirit, and United Airlines from cities like Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, and more!

These are terrific deals, so I’m not sure how long they’ll last.

But check your home airport to see if you can find a deal!  I used Google Flights to search for travel dates and find the lowest fares.

American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, Spirit, and United Airlines are all offering good deals.  But remember, Frontier and Spirit charge extra fees for things like checked & carry-on baggage and seat selection, so do the math to be sure you’re getting a good deal.  Or pack light!

Use the Right Credit Card!

Remember to pay with a card that will earn you bonus points for your ticket:

If you book a cheap flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I like using Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.

Transfer Points From Bank and Airline Programs to Hotels Like Hilton

Check out my posts on all the ways to earn Hilton and Hyatt points!

Note:  Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).

Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on lodging, especially for longer stays.  Or for folks to prefer a more local feel.  Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price.  And how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.

Bottom Line

There are lots of terrific deals today on flights to California, including Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco.

I found cheap fares from 11 US cities starting at ~$78 round-trip in coach.  But check your home airport for deals!

Use Google Flights to find these sale fares on American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, Spirit, and United Airlines.  Remember, Frontier and Spirit charge extra for checked & carry-on baggage, seat selection, and more.  So factor in these costs if you can’t pack light.

@Mike 100% agreed! Plus who would fly spirit? Even to LA! Worst airline!

Misleading title to get me to click on article. You got me. Looked like $78 RT from all cities listed. NOT TRUE. From only some of the cities like Phoenix. I hate these false come ons.
