Take Flight: Here's Where To Travel for Under $450 in June
This summer will be a rough one for finding a flight deal. Leadership from the top U.S. airline companies say a majority of summer international flights are all booked up.
The longer you wait, the more the pickings get slim and the prices go up. Now, this doesn’t mean you won’t be able to travel. What it means is that you will have to choose carefully and go somewhere where your money can work for you instead of against you.
The Caribbean and South America are two regions where you can get a nice deal. Here are four of the best travel deals for under $450 this June.
St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands: As Low As $185 Round Trip
There’s so much to love about St. Croix. If you want a beach and Caribbean destination that doesn’t require a passport, St. Croix should be your go-to.
Ready to book a flight? The cheapest departure cities include Nashville, Norfolk, Charlotte, New York City, Atlanta, and Philadelphia.
All of these cities have flights for less than $250 round-trip.

Liberia, Costa Rica: As Low As $226 Round Trip
Take advantage of flight deals to Liberia, Costa Rica. We don’t how much longer they will last. Located in the Guanacaste region, this area is known for its beaches.
