With the vaccine rollout gaining steam and a few shots of nice weather this past week, I’m sure some of y’all are like me and daydreaming now about getting away.

Finding cheap flights was a side passion of mine before the pandemic. Once I booked a round-trip flight from Baltimore to Jerusalem for $249. I figured I’d spread the cheap flights ideas love around, for anyone who’s itching to travel again once it’s safe to do so.

Here are 5 deals, available right now:

(1) $212: CLT to Denver, Colorado from Dec. 11-15.

  • Nonstop flights with Frontier Airlines (it’s really not that bad!).
  • Outside of Frontier, roundtrip flights are typically $300+.

(2) $244: CLT to San Francisco throughout the rest of 2021.

  • Nonstop with American.

(3) $345: CLT to Mexico City, Mexico from Oct. 6-13.

  • 1 stop in Guadalajara with Volaris.
  • Normally $500+.

(4) $524: RDU to Tokyo, Japan from Sept. 17-26.

  • Drive up to the Triangle to save over $500 — the CLT to Tokyo flights are typically $1,100+.
  • 1 stop with American.

(5) $780: CLT to London Gatwick Airport from June 8-15.

  • 2 stops with JetBlue to save about $300.

Be safe: Yes, tickets are really cheap right now, but consider booking something further out versus Tampa for spring break.

Editor’s note: Flight prices change constantly. These prices were what was available at 8pm on March 2.
