How to compare flights to Punta Cana for the best deal

With so many search engines vying for your travel dollars, here's our strategy for narrowing down the cheapest fares around.
  1. Book early. It's rare that fares to Punta Cana get cheaper the closer to your departure. Travel experts say the best time to book is two months in advance.
  2. Use a third-party site. A tool like Expedia, Orbitz, Skyscanner or Priceline can help you compare routes, prices, promo codes and coupons before booking your flight.
  3. Keep your dates flexible. You might have better luck scoring a great price on a flight to Punta Cana if you try flying on a less popular day of the week — for instance, return on a Monday rather than Sunday.
  4. In Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, the only airport within 50 miles is Maria Montez International Airport (BRX) so your options for alternative airports are limited.

International travel during the COVID-19 pandemic

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, airlines are heightening hygiene and safety measures that include enhanced cleaning protocols, staggered boarding procedures, HEPA filters and mask requirements. That said, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that travel of any kind increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. If a flight is in your plans, wear a mask and practice social distancing while at the airport, while boarding and throughout your flight. Consider packing a coronavirus travel kit stocked with essentials like face masks, hand sanitizer and disposable gloves. And avoid travel — especially public transportation — if you feel sick or come into contact with someone who has COVID-19 within 14 days of your plans.
