We have entered that sweet spot between the summer and holiday travel seasons. It's not too hot out. Kids are back in school. It's a great time to take a cheap trip before flights and hotels become impossibly expensive from Thanksgiving through New Years.
To that end, Southwest has launched another sale with one-way tickets as low as $49. The deals are flying out of 98 airports, the majority of which are inside the US.
The prices are available in both directions. Though the best deals, of course, are often for short-distance flights. Nonetheless, the below roundtrip between Cleveland and Milwaukee -- one of a handful of routes with $49 flights -- comes to just $97 round trip.
If Milwaukee isn't exotic enough for you, the sale has international options with flights to Belize City, Belize; Cancun, Mexico; Havana, Cuba; Mexico City, Mexico; and San Jose, Costa Rica among the destinations. Those start at $94 one-way with round trip fares as low as $192.56 all-in.
