If you’re looking to book a spring break trip for 2019, Southwest has the sale for you! You’ll need to book by November 8, 2018, but the discounts apply to domestic flights through May 22, 2019.
If you’ve already booked any Southwest flights, this is also a great time to check and see if the price dropped because you’ll be able to change your flight (and save) for free!
And don’t forget, folks with the Southwest Companion Pass could fly to these cities even more cheaply. That’s because, with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for just the cost of taxes & fees on both paid and award tickets!

One nice thing about a Southwest sale is you can also book Southwest award tickets with fewer Southwest points because the price of an award flight is tied to the cash price. And during this particular sale, you can book one-way award seats for less than ~2,000 Southwest points!
There are lots of other benefits to flying Southwest, too. Like their generous change and cancellation policy. And the fact that every passenger gets 2 free checked bags! That alone is a savings of ~$30 per bag compared to other airlines.
