The least fun part about planning your spring break trip is undoubtedly adding up the costs you'll need to cover to make your vacation happen. To avoid putting a damper on your getaway before it even starts, it's best to keep an eye out for any spring break deals. With that in mind, here are five cheap 2018 spring break flights that will get you wherever you need to go without breaking the bank.

Most people tend to head toward the sun and sand for their spring break. A beach vacation is definitely a welcome change if you've been stuck in the snow during the brutal winter months. Others might opt for a more active vacation and head to a city they've never been to before. Whichever destination you choose, you'll want to make sure that you don't come home from your vacation with an empty wallet and credit card bills galore.

Seeing as though spring break is such a popular time for travel, Expedia did a little digging to find out which vacation destinations are the most affordable for U.S. travelers. According to information from Alexis Tiacoh, an Expedia spokesperson, there are 25 U.S. destinations that have round-trip airfares of under $400. The top five spots are the perfect mix of both beach and city getaways.
