When can you fly?
Dates are available from August through October.
As always the best way to find fares on Southwest is with the convenient low fare finder. Here are some sample dates in August.
As always with Southwest, there are a few important things to keep in mind:
- Your first two bags fly free – this represents a savings of $50 -$100 compared to other airlines.
- Open seating – your place in line is determined by when you check in, so be sure to set a timer for 24 hrs before you fly. If you don’t want to bother with that you can always buy Early Bird Check-In for $15 each way
- Do you often fly with s a companion? Check out the Southwest Companion Pass. This is easily the best deal in “travel hacking.” You can get it with just two credit card sign up bonuses. It’s saved us thousands of dollars over the years.
- Flexibility – you can cancel your flight up to 10 minutes prior to travel. You’ll receive the amount paid back as a voucher for use within a year. You can also change your flight and simply pay the difference in fares.
