While we still aren’t in the clear of COVID-19, some travelers are going stir crazy and are ready to get away for a few days. If you are one of those people, we found a few U.S. cities that have had a significant drop in flight prices.
It is best to purchase your flights now, after reading the airline’s cancelation policy of course. If you find that it is too risky to travel once the date comes, you should be able to receive a credit or the option to rebook for a later date.
Of course, if you do decide to venture out you’ll want to check the destination’s quarantine rules and any stay-at-home orders that may be in place.
NOLA aka ‘The Big Easy” has seen as much as a 65% drop in fares according to Skyscanner. Flights are pricing at around $135 roundtrip from several cities across the country. However, keep in mind that New Orleans still isn’t 100% open for tourism.
