Chelsea is Brooklyn-based travel writer, editor, and photographer. When not home eating her way through NYC, she's gallivanting across the globe, sailing the coast of Croatia or hiking the peaks of Peru. Her superpowers include booking flight deals and sleeping in small plane seats.
This is one of the most widespread sales we’ve ever seen. Airports across the U.S.—from Albuquerque, Kansas City, and Baltimore to Denver, Omaha, Nashville, and more—are offering discounts to Belize. Typically, a round-trip ticket costs upwards of $500, but airfare is now starting at $246 on carriers such as American, Delta, and United. Note: April has the most availability to this sunny Central American country.
Consider Sweden’s capital for your next European getaway. The Scandinavian city is known for its colorful waterfront, which extends across 14 islands between the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälaren. Every major Florida airport has deals to Stockholm—Miami being the cheapest at $348 round-trip. Boston Logan and Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C. are also wallet-friendly with flights hovering around $380. These are basic economy fares on United, Swiss, SAS, and Lufthansa, so factor in an extra cost if you plan on checking bags.
Kauai and Maui
Pristine coastlines, lush tropical forests, and laid-back island vibes—safe to say, there’s never a bad time to hop over to Hawaii. This spring, New Yorkers are in luck: between April 9 and May 14, you can escape the city madness with Hawaiian Airlines’ insanely cheap $518 round-trip flights to Kauai and Maui. The best part? Routes are direct from JFK to Honolulu, with just a short layover before continuing on to Kauai or Maui.
China Southern is currently offering huge deals on destinations across Asia, including Bali, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, New Delhi, and more. You’ll have to fly out of Los Angeles, San Francisco, or JFK in New York City, but prices start at $348 for a trip that usually cashes in around $850. Because most routes have long stopovers in Guangzhou, we suggest opting to extend your visit overnight and check out the Chinese city in your spare time.
You don’t have to tell us twice to go to Spain—especially when the airfare is this surprisingly low. At only $288 (that’s not a typo!), you can fly non-stop from JFK in New York City to Madrid via Delta, KLM, or Air France. Plus, it’s valid for trips at the end of April and throughout May, so you have more options to choose from in terms of vacation days.
Is Australia still on your bucket list? It might be time to head down under. When you’re done taking in Sydney's iconic sights, venture outside the city to the vineyards in Hunter Valley. Come fall (or spring in the U.S.), it’s peak harvest and wine time. Flights from Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, and Seattle are the most affordable at $614 (that’s one grand in savings!) via American, Delta, or Virgin Australia. You’ll also find deals hovering around $675 from Charlotte, Philadelphia, Portland, Miami, and Phoenix.
Jamaica is the ideal spot for a quick trip to the Caribbean. Delta is featuring fares to Montego Bay departing from Charlotte, Dallas (both DAL and DFW), and Philadelphia for only $287 round-trip. The catch: these are basic economy fares, which include one free carry-on bag but don’t allow for early seat selection.
