Here Are The Best Places To Fly To In January 2019 If You're Traveling On A Budget
The new year is right around the corner, which means it's time to start making some resolutions. If you're hoping to travel more in 2019, you might be seeking some flight deals to help kickstart your year. However, traveling right after the holidays can be difficult — especially if you just spent all of your money on gifts. Luckily, various companies are helping travelers find the best places to fly in January 2019 by offering discounted plane tickets. Thanks to them, post-holiday traveling won't totally break the bank.
Whether you're hoping to visit European landmarks or go city-hopping in the United States, there are a handful of cheap flight options that you can choose from. Why travel in January, you ask? Well, there are a few reasons. Maybe you want to escape the cold and visit a beach on the cheap, or maybe you want to begin your year in a totally different location. Whatever your reason may be, you can find affordable flights that'll help fulfill your newfound wanderlust.
Before I dive in, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Some of the following sales are only happening for a limited time (like, very limited), while others can be scored in December and January. With that being said, you might have to book your trip now and do the planning later.
If Barcelona has been on your bucket list, then now's your chance to book a flight. If you visit WOW Air's website during the company's Christmas sale, you'll be able to score a one-way January ticket for only $189.99. Just keep in mind that this sale ends Dec. 16 — so you'll have to book your trip ASAP.
If you need more convincing to visit Spain, Expedia has you covered. According to a spokesperson from the travel site, tickets to Barcelona in January 2019 are 30 percent cheaper than average flights throughout the rest of the year. How could you pass that up?
If you'd rather start the new year in Ireland, then use WOW Air's Christmas sale to score a $149.99 one-way trip in January. Like the Barcelona deal, you can visit the company's sale page between now and Dec. 16 to start the booking process.
If you're hoping to visit a warm U.S. city in the midst of winter, then maybe this $20 flight to Orlando would be a good choice. (Yes, I said $20.) Frontier is currently offering $20 and $25 to the Florida city from various departure areas, but you'll have to act fast if you want to score tickets. Why? Because you only have until the end of the day on Dec. 14 to book.
Las Vegas, Nevada
If you use Frontier's current sale, you can also fly to Las Vegas for $25 in January. Plus, if you scroll through the sale's options, you'll be able to choose from a handful of departure cities that are also headed for Nevada. Some of those include Austin, Texas, and Salt Lake City, Utah. Like I said, you can book this trip until Dec. 14 — so start planning.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
With a quick search on Kayak, you'll be able to find cheap January flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico — like this $205 round trip from New York City on JetBlue.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
New York, New York
If you're hoping to visit the Big Apple in January, check out Spirit's deals. With a quick search, you can find various discounts for 2019, such as this $51 one-way flight from Chicago, Illinois, to New York, New York. Act fast, though, because Spirit's current sale will end at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 14.
As you can see, there are tons of flight deals for January 2019 that won't break the bank. While you're planning your trip, just keep booking deadlines in mind. Also, it helps to utilize booking sites such as Expedia and Kayak while you're searching for cheap deals. If you keep those pointers in mind, you'll be able to find reasonable flights for the new year in no time.
