The Hottest Flight Deals We Found In the Last 30 Days!

If you don’t think you can get to your bucket list destination from your city, we have news for you! Anything is possible with the right flight deal. From the big airports like Los Angeles (LAX) to the tiny ones like Lincoln, Nebraska (LNK), we found cheap flights from almost every single U.S. airport in the last month that will blow your mind.

This month, we were shocked by rare nonstop fares to Costa Rica, flash sales to Tokyo for the Olympics, huge savings to South America, fares to tropical islands under $200 (yes, that’s roundtrip!), and so much more.

Many of these international flight deals are already gone. But if you don’t want to miss out on the next ones we find, try Thrifty Traveler Premium free for 14 days (and then just $45 per year) to get in on this flight deal madness.

Here’s a taste of just how cheap things have gotten for international flights based on the 100+ deals we found in the past month. Which of these deals has you ready to pack your bags?



1. $600 Nonstop & Roundtrip Fares to Australia

It’s been almost a year since we’ve seen shockingly low fares to Australia. But with the deals we saw this month, things are looking good for cheap fares to the land down under!

We found nonstop fares to Australia for just $600 roundtrip, including peak summer in the southern hemisphere. Typically, peak summer fares will cost you at least $1,350 from major U.S. cities. That’s a heck of a deal for a 14+ hour flight!




The savings didn’t stop there, though. We also discovered a nationwide flash sale on American Airlines AAdvantage award bookings to Australia and New Zealand! This flash sale was live from nearly every U.S. airport, including smaller regional airports. You could get to Australia or New Zealand for 55k miles from airports like…

  • Billings (BIL)
  • Colorado Springs (COS)
  • Des Moines (DSM)
  • Detroit (DTW)
  • Fargo (FAR)
  • La Crosse (LSE)
  • Madison (MSN)
  • Omaha (OMA)
  • Reno (RNO)
  • Rochester (RST)
  • Toledo  (TOL)
  • …and nearly 100 more!

Roundtrip fares to Australia or New Zealand normally cost well over $1,300, but you could’ve flown for free on this miles flash sale!


2. 90+ U.S. Cities to Hawaii from $257

In desperate need of a tropical island getaway? We’ve got you covered!

One of our favorite deals we found this month was flights to Hawaii from $257 … roundtrip. Whether you want to escape winter in Oahu or explore Kauai in peak summer, this deal spanned several months from nearly 100 U.S. cities.

If Hawaii is on your bucket list for 2020, you needed these cheap fares in your email inbox!



3. Nonstop Delta Flights to Greece Under $400

While we found over 100 flight deals in the past month, we just can’t get over the value in some of these insane nonstop fares to Europe. Just when we thought flights to Europe were as cheap as they could be, the deals keep coming.

And we simply have to gush over one of the cheapest nonstop fares we found from New York to Greece this year: nonstop and roundtrip on Delta for $388!

Thrifty Tip: Don’t live in New York? Don’t worry! For unreal fares like this, you could have booked a cheap positioning flight to take advantage of this deal.





4. Save Hundreds on Flights to Tahiti 100+ U.S. Cities 

Don’t think the perfect flight deal to paradise exists? Think again! Premium subscribers all over the country got a chance to cross Tahiti off their ultimate bucket list this past month with this insane flight deal.

Flights to Tahiti are often more than $1,500 roundtrip. We found an insane nationwide flash sale to Tahiti for half off normal airfare from over 100 U.S. cities! You could fly to Tahiti for under $900 from cities like Bozeman, Green Bay, Madison, Minneapolis, Omaha, Peoria, and many more.




Do you live in a smaller city, far from the major hub airports? Prefer to beat the traffic and fly out of a regional airport? We find flight deals from over 100 U.S. airports, likely including yours. It’s not just the big cities that benefit from flight deals – we’ve seen airfare from even small U.S. cities dropping, too.


5. $1,000+ Savings from Regional Airports to South Africa 

Last but not least: some travel dreams came true this month with $1,000+ off fares to South Africa! We uncovered insane fares to Cape Town (CPT) from even small regional airports. You could have flown to Cape Town from:
