Hot Airfare Deals for March 5, 2015
Link: The Flight Deal
1. New York to Miami on Delta for ~$138 Round-Trip
Here’s a great opportunity to catch some sunshine and escape the cold! Delta has fares from New York to Miami for only ~$138 in coach round-trip!
The fare is valid for travel until April 29, 2015, for travel from Monday through Thursday only. There’s a 21-day advance purchase requirement.
I was able to find the fare on Orbitz.
2. New York to Tel Aviv, Israel, on Ukraine International Airlines for ~$307 Round-Trip
If you don’t mind a long layover in the Ukraine, you can fly from New York to Tel Aviv, Israel on Ukraine International Airlines for ~$307 round-trip in coach.
According to the Discover Ukraine website, US citizens are NOT required to have a visa to transit the Ukraine. But keep in mind you may be there for ~17 hours before continuing to Tel Aviv!
What If You’re Not in New York?
You can get to New York cheaply by using points (like British Airways Avios) to get there. British Airways Avios are great for short-haul flights because it’s only 4,500 points 1-way for flights less than 649 miles, and 7,500 points for flights up to 1,149 miles.
Or if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you could fly to New York very cheaply. That’s because with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for almost free on both paid and award tickets.
Or you could try to find a cheap paid ticket from your home airport to New York. But do the math to see if it’s worth it.
And remember that having cards like the American Express Gold Delta SkyMiles gets you perks like free checked bags and priority boarding.
Get Free Hotels Nights With These Cards
Now that you’ve booked a cheap 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: 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).
And if you’re feeling adventurous or prefer a local, more neighborhood feel, Airbnb is a great way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.
You can fly in coach from New York to Miami for ~$138 round-trip, or from New York to Tel Aviv, Israel, for ~$307 round-trip!
Remember, low fares usually don’t last, so book soon if you want to get in on these prices.
