There are plenty of available dates open through April (and a FEW in May) 2017.

If you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz, Expedia, or Priceline you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket. Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!
Folks with the Southwest Companion Pass could fly to these departure cities very cheaply. That’s because with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for almost free on both paid and award tickets. So even if you aren’t in these 5 cities, you can get there for cheap!
Folks with AMEX Delta SkyMiles cards can get 1 free checked bag for yourself and up to 8 traveling companions on the same reservation.Note: You can cancel a Delta booking by midnight the day after you bought your ticket and get a full refund.
United Airlines Tips
Don’t forget to use your Chase United Explorer card to pay for your tickets if you want your first bag checked for free.
The free bag applies to the cardholder and 1 traveling companion, but you have to travel together on the same reservation.Note: You can cancel a United Airlines booking 24 hours after you book to get a full refund.
If you book a sale flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.Note: If you prefer to book paid stays, 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 accommodations, especially for longer stays. Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.
