Looking for cheap destinations to travel June 2022? You’ve come to the right place because we’ve got you covered.
It’s the least we can do because we’re officially halfway through the year. Now is an excellent time to reset and make good on those New Year’s Resolutions of you promising to travel more in 2022.
We know that your plans may have been altered amid these rising gas prices. Don’t be discouraged. The good news is finding flight deals is still possible. We’ve done the research so all you have to do is click and buy.
Here are five flight deals for $400 or less round-trip this June.
1. Toronto, Canada For As Low As $113 Round-Trip
Aside from September, June is one of the best times to visit Toronto. The city is finally warm after a brutal winter, and it’s not as busy of a time as July and August.
As Canada’s largest and most diverse city, there’s a lot to do, see, and conquer.
Want to experience the Black culture exclusively? We have a guide to spending 24 Hours in Black-Owned Toronto here.
According to Skyscanner, many flights from U.S. cities will get you to Toronto for less than $200 round-trip, including Nashville, Orlando, New York City, Tampa, and Boston.
2. Medellín, Colombia For As Low As $151 Round-Trip
Medellín is a beautiful and vibrant city known for perfect weather year-round. Medellín’s spring-like weather is why it’s known as the city of Eternal Spring, where the natural beauty is unmatched.
Besides the weather, the food and nightlife are what keep people going back.
Some foods to try in Medellín include arepas, a dish served with cheese and vegetables inside cornflour before it’s cooked or grilled; mondongo, a soup made from tripe and vegetables; and fríjoles antioqueños, a dish specific to this region that’s essentially a bean stew.
There are a ton of flights departing the U.S. for less than $300 round-trip, according to Skyscanner.
The cheapest option leaves Miami on June 5 and returns on June 9 for $151 round-trip.
3. Panama City, Panama For As Low As $170 Round-Trip
Panama City consistently ranks high as a top destination for Black travelers and expats because the culture allows you to feel welcomed and right at home.
June is the rainy season in Panama City. If you don’t mind periodic showers throughout the day and some humidity, it’s a great time to go, especially if you’re on a budget.
Costs and crowds are lower during the rainy season, which lasts until about November.
During your visit, be sure to explore the streets of San Felipe. Locals refer to it as Casco Viejo. Even though it’s about four avenues long, it’s a UNESCO-protected neighborhood that’s great for Instagram. It’s located in the heart of the old city.
Another activity to consider is a visit to the Panama Canal. This iconic and artificial waterway connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and is one of the Seventh Wonders of the Modern World.
Skyscanner has plenty of city options that will have you in The Gateway to Latin America for $300 round-trip or less.
Travelers leaving from Fort Lauderdale have the cheapest option. Use June 14 through June 22 as your travel dates for a round-trip ticket priced at $170 on Spirit Airlines.
4. Oranjestad, Aruba For As Low As $282 Round-Trip
We’re always hesitant to encourage travel to the Caribbean islands during the Atlantic Hurricane Season, which lasts from June 1 through November 30. Every hurricane season is different, but we would hate for you all to be stranded.
But some islands are an exception. Aruba is one of them as it sits below the Hurricane belt. While anything is possible during this turbulent season, direct hits from Hurricanes are pretty rare in Aruba. The last recorded storm was a Category 2 in 2007, followed by reported wind and flood damage from the tail end of Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
Generally speaking, Aruba is a good destination if you want to travel to the Caribbean while minimalizing the risks this summer.
Regarding what to do, The World’s Happiest Island is known for its beautiful beaches, water sports, and activities. We can’t forget the island’s famous Flamingo Beach at the Renaissance Hotel.
One thing we highly recommend, however, is renting a car to explore the island and take in the stunning views. Read more on our Aruba activity guide here.
Those departing from the East Coast have the best flight deals to Aruba for less than $400 round-trip.
Fort Lauderdale travelers have the cheapest option. Use June 11 through June 13 as your travel dates in Skyscanner for a round-trip ticket priced at $282.
5. Reykjavik, Iceland For As Low As $361 Round-Trip
I think it’s a sign of the [good] times because it’s been a while since we’ve incorporated Reykjavik on our flight deal lists.
June is the start of the summer months and a celebratory time for Scandinavia, where people deal with colder climates for most of the year.
In Reykjavik, whale watching in Husavik, touring inside Iceland’s dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano, and exploring the Nature Exploratorium Perlan are all must-sees.
And, of course, a trip to Iceland wouldn’t be complete without a day trip visiting the iconic Blue Lagoon.
Thanks to PLAY Airlines, the cheapest flight option departs New York City on June 9 and returns on June 15. The ticket will cost you around $362 round-trip.
You can also purchase round-trip tickets for less than $400, leaving Boston or Washington, D.C. on Skyscanner by clicking here.
