Cheap Flights for Summer Vacation Travel

Listen to the audio below for expert advice on cool stuff to do in London

Now we’re getting somewhere – the airlines are finally doing deals for summer, including specials on business class to Europe. We still have some spring deals too, so let’s take a look:

AirTran Spring, Summer, Fall Sale – Book by April 14

This awesome sale from AirTran covers it all – spring, summer and fall – all the way up ’til Nov. 2. Plus, it has flights to all your favorite destinations including some Caribbean hotspots. Fares start as low as $43+ each-way (not including those pesky taxes/fees) and you can see more details on the AirTran website. Meanwhile, I am left with just one question: what are you waiting for?

Frontier Summer Sale – Book by April 12

Another great sale for vacation planners, good for flights from June 1 through Sept. 8, and prices start at a very low $39+ each-way (got to add those taxes and fees, though). However, as we always say, the cheapest seats do not last so if you like what you see, better get going. See the Frontier website for more info.

United Business Class Europe Summer Sale – Ends May 31

Forget traveling in style, how about traveling in comfort? You can, if you take advantage of this Business Class Sale to Europe from United. Fly June 28 through Sept. 2 but there is a 60 day advance purchase requirement. See the United website for more and get ready to travel to Paris, Rome, London and more.

And speaking of London…Matt Brown of has all kinds of great ideas on things to do there (plus what to eat and where to shop). Take a listen:

Southwest Airfare Sale – Book by April 7

The “free bags” airline has a nice little spring sale currently underway, and as usual it only lasts for 3 days; these fares are good for flights through June 7, and there is a 21 day advance purchase requirement so you better step on it. See Southwest’s website for more.

Hawaiian Airlines Sale on Hawaii – Ends Today (April 5)

Here’s a surprise – Hawaiian has Hawaiian flights on sale, but you have to hurry. These flights are good from numerous U.S. cities, and you can travel up to June 7. See Hawaiian’s website for the stuff you want to know.
