As the summer travel season comes to a close, airlines are seeing a waning demand for flights, due largely to COVID concerns. In fact, because of the Delta variant, many officials are asking unvaccinated Americans to not travel this Labor Day weekend.
However, this drop in demand is also leading to some extremely cheap flights. When searching for low fares we found roundtrip tickets from Houston to Chicago were going for as little as $96.80, and roundtrip cross-country flights from NYC to San Diego were as low as $236.79.
While unvaccinated people shouldn’t travel at all, these low prices could become travel steals for those vaccinated Americans who are looking to vacation this fall. It is important to keep in mind that every destination is different right now, both domestic and international. Some require vaccines, others require quarantines, and some destinations, like Hawaii, are even actively telling travelers not to visit. Before making any booking during the pandemic, it’s extremely important to check what kind of COVID protocols/restrictions are in place at the destination you intend to visit.
As kids continue to go back to school, and demand continues to drop, prices are likely to continue to stay low, so this could be the perfect time to book flights for the next few months.
