Talk about a New Year Sale!
The new year is always an exciting time but for those stuck in the frosty Northeastern US, the joy only lasts for so long. Escaping the cold to an exotic Caribbean island may sound far-fetched for most, but with the flight deals popping up in early 2019, practically anyone can find themself reveling in the Caribbean sunshine.
We had to report on these hot deals to the Caribbean immediately because they won’t last long!
Enticing Airline Deals to the Caribbean
Norwegian Air just announced that, for a limited time only, flights to the Caribbean will start at $59 for dates through March 2019. Until January 18, you can score deals to the picturesque beaches of Guadeloupe and Martinique for less than the price of a dinner out for two. While this deal is only for one-way flights, your round-trip purchase could total less than $200 if you have flexibility on dates and live near New York’s JFK or Florida’s FLL airports. Additional deals to the Caribbean include American Airlines’ vacation packages to St. Lucia where you not only get a great deal on air and stay at resorts like Anse Chastanet Resort, Hideaway at Royalton St. Lucia and Jade Mountain Resort, but also 15,000 bonus miles—simply read their guidelines and purchase before February 6 for dates through September 2019.
Travel in Early 2019 Means Serious Savings
Whether you snag these particular deals or not, the first quarter of the year is known as a “dead zone” for travel companies.
As founder of AirfareWatchdog.com, George Hobica stated, “The period from now through the middle of February (when school vacations start) is arguably the cheapest time to fly not just within the US but everywhere.”
Everyone is getting back into the swing of things after the holidays and families are less likely to travel before spring break or summer vacation for schools. This leads airlines to offer serious bargains to entice weary workers into that much-needed, post-holiday vacation. And why not spend some of the frigid cold months on a beach sipping a piña colada? With rates as low as the deal through Norwegian, you get the Caribbean’s year-round, glorious sunshine for a fraction of the cost.
