This won’t last, so make sure to book the flight now and remember you can cancel within 24 hours of purchase for a full refund! Nearly every city in Europe is available on this promotion!
Delta is putting flights to Vancouver on sale from $215rt, with the cheapest flights through the end of April. Considering $70 of the flight goes to taxes, it doesn’t get much better than this!
Go skiing at Whistler or any of the several ski resorts just outside the city. Enjoy the ocean, the mountains, and the city all in the same place. Remember - you’ll need your passport to enter and leave Canada!
Note: Google flights may show a slightly different price until you select both your outgoing and return flights.
Delta has flights to Johannesburg, South Africa on sale for flights through the end of May. I visited South Africa in 2014, and it’s an awesome place to go on a safari, dive with great white sharks, surf, and explore. With such diverse landscape, people, and history, it has something for everyone.
American has put flights to Brazil, including Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Recife, Curitiba, and more on sale from $556rt for flights through mid-April. Availability is very good, including many dates around the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years holidays, and even Carnaval in RIo!
American Airlines has flights to Bogota, Colombia (BOG) on sale right now for $378, round-trip, which is about $400 less than usual! I made a two-week trip to Colombia last year and loved the beautiful and varied landscapes, the warm and friendly people, and the perfect weather. Spend your time strolling the streets and museums of Bogota, partying in Medellin, rafting and bungy jumping in San Gil, or hop a flight to San Andreas or Providencia for a pristine Caribbean island experience.
This price is good through the end of March, and a free stopover is allowed in Dallas or Miami. If you’re interested in exploring other cities in Colombia, Viva Colombia has flights for many places for around $50; just be patient - they aren’t known for their promptness. You can check out available dates using Google Flight search here.
American and US Airways have flights this fall to Cancun from $232rt. This is the lowest price we’ve ever posted for Cancun, so grab one while you still can!
This price is good for departures through mid March 2016, and the best prices are for Sunday-Thursday departures. Most flights I’m seeing involve fairly long layovers in Phoenix or Dallas, but your mileage may vary. One free stopover is allowed as well, with the easiest options being Phoenix or Dallas.
JetBlue has non-stop flights to the happiest place on earth through mid-December on sale from just $207rt!

The Mexico City deal is valid for all dates within the next year, but the Guadalajara deal is for flights through the end of October. Both apply to the dates for the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations throughout the country, which is one of the most interesting cultural festivals in the world.
