Editor’s Note: We know COVID-19 is continuing to impact your travel plans. As of April 2021, official guidance from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention states that fully vaccinated people can travel domestically at low risk, though safety precautions are still required. Should you need to travel, be sure to familiarize yourself with the CDC’s latest guidance as well as local requirements/protocols/restrictions for both your destination and home city upon your return. Be safe out there.

Southwest Airlines loves a good sale, which must be why the company has them so frequently. As of Tuesday, the budget-friendly carrier is offering deals on one-way tickets starting at $59, but you must purchase the tickets by October 11. The sale is valid for travel dates between October 19, 2021, and March 9, 2022, for flights in the continental US and within the islands of Hawaii.

You can book the flights on Southwest’s website, where hundreds of one-way flights are marked down. We’ve gone through and made a list of some of the best deals. Go ahead and pack a bag and make some travel plans because some of these one-way flights cost less than a full tank of gas.
