Getting the travel itch? Act fast to fly from $21 with Frontier and $49 with JetBlue

Posted: 12 January 2021 5:51 pm

Land on the beach for cheap with sunny sales on flights departing from over 50 US airports.

Play your cards right, and you could be booking a cheap flight through JetBlue and Frontier to a warm-weather destination this spring for less than a tank of gas.

Frontier Warm Weather Deals

Frontier’s Warm Weather Deals fall into to parts: Its discounted Soak Up the Sun fares that start at $21, and Warm Up and Save 75%, a coupon code for huge savings on select flights. Both sales end on Thursday.

  • Due to the pandemic, Frontier is waiving change and cancellation fees for bookings made through February 28th.
  • Keep in mind that only one personal item is included in the price of Frontier flights, which means you’ll pay extra for a carry-on — about $37 if you pay for it online or up to $60 at the airport.

Soak Up the Sun

One-way flights start at $21 for departure on a Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday sometime before May 26th of this year.

To get the cheapest rates, sign up for Frontier’s loyalty program, Discount Den. It’s $60 a year, and kids fly free on valid flights. Not interested in joining? Great deals are still to be had if you’re not a member.

Traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic
If you plan to travel during the pandemic, monitor and understand the risk assessment levels for your destination when planning your trip, before departure and on arrival. Follow safety measures that include wearing a mask in public settings, maintaining social distancing and washing your hands. If you are diagnosed, have symptoms of or are waiting for test results for COVID-19 — or are otherwise at risk of illness — do not host, attend gatherings or travel for 14 days. Note that the CDC warns against cruise travel at this time.
