Flights are expensive. I often have enough points for hotels and cars to get rooms and rent for free, but I will still break the bank if I go on the trip because of the plane.
The thing is, I ended up wanting to get out of driving distance. Who doesn’t want to see the world? Fortunately, there are certain destinations that are routinely cheaper than others. If you manage to book early and get the right price, you can get a HUGE vacation.
1. Chicago: Consistently the cheapest price for a flight from anywhere in the United States, Chicago is such a center for a medium-sized country that airlines fortunately make it easier for virtually anyone to get there. Although it is not the fastest or largest city, it has a lot to offer for sightseeing, especially if you have never been!
2. Orlando: Fortunately for all of us Disney fanatics, Orlando ranks second in terms of flight prices. This varies greatly depending on the season, but overall, your biggest expense here will be the Disney Park tickets themselves.
3. Washington D.C .: Another cheaper option all year round, Washington D.C., is always a solid choice to visit. There are tons of history, but it’s also a bouncy city if you’re looking for something more relevant. It’s obviously a political world if you’re interested in it, but even architecture is fun to go around if you’re not. Cherry blossoms are also gorgeous in the spring!
4. New York: Oh, New York. If you’ve never been, get on a plane and check it at least once. Although tickets are not as cheap as the others on this list, they are not crazy either. Most flights have a stopover in New York, which makes it somehow possible to travel to. The city is amazing (though expensive) with almost endless things to do.
5. Austin, Texas: Since I’ve never been to Austin, I can’t give a personal recommendation, but I’m told it’s a fun but very spiritual city (do they even go together?). I also know that again many flights have intermediate landings here, which makes it cheaper; it’s also not a huge leisure travel destination, so it’s likely to be cheaper than other tourism-based cities.
For extra discounts, try using apps that hide your browser location so that airlines don’t check where you’re looking for and increase prices (seriously, I saved over $ 50 this way). Cheers for the discounts in the USA!
