It's me again, your Deepest Travel Desires. Forgot about me, huh? Remember when you got a promotion during the time you'd planned to go on a vacation and promptly canceled the trip, shoving me into the chamber of your subconscious? Or some situation like that? Well, I remain here, sweetie, heave-hoing against the door of resistance, whispering the latest Southwest flight deals into your inner ear until the day I'm finally freed from this PTO-less prison.
This time around, there's no excuse -- Southwest's latest nationwide fare sale lasts for four days this week, a totally reasonable amount of time for you to access your Deepest Travel Desires, self-actualize, and book your tickets.
To get the discounted one-way flights, you need to book by December 13, 11:59pm Pacific Time. Just select your location from the drop-down menu and peruse both the domestic and international options. Here are our favorite deals:
Atlanta to Greenville, SC (and vice versa) for $49
Atlanta to Nashville (and vice versa) for $49

Heads up, inter-island travel in Hawaii is super cheap right now too, with one-way flights hanging around $39.
Points bookings do not include government fees, but you'll get a free checked bag and carry-on. Make sure you check the sale page for the specific time range when the discounts are valid. The deals only apply after January 7 and end in the beginning of March, for example, and there are some blackout periods therein.
So go ahead and buy those tickets, or I -- your Deepest Travel Desires -- will forever make you feel terrible every time you look at your wanderlusting college roommate's Instagram.
