Pack your bags, because you can sneak away for close to nothing thanks to Southwest Airlines' flight sale that's going on now. In order to snag a great deal, you need to book your travel no later than Thursday, Aug. 16. There are some restrictions like blackout dates, as well as limited seat availability. You will also need to be flexible with your travel dates in order to get the best possible price. The travel dates for Southwest's "Nothing Is Better" sale are Tuesday, Aug. 21 to Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2019, according to Southwest.
Now for the fun part. Here are a few of the low-cost fares you can book during the Southwest sale.

It should be noted that Southwest will not charge you a fee to change your flight. Things happen. Southwest understands. Although, you may have to pay the difference between your old fare and new fare. Another great perk at Southwest? You can check your first and second bags for free.
