Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.

If you’re already sick of the cold this winter, here’s another chance to escape to the Caribbean. This week, JetBlue and United have cheap flights to Antigua and Barbuda (ANU) from New York (JFK) and Newark (EWR). Flights are available from this month through March 2016, so there are plenty of possible travel dates over the next few months.

The cheapest flights we found are $280 round-trip on both airlines. However, if you’re looking to book some last-minute travel this December, you’ll have to shell out a bit more for your flights, which start at $292. Note that these dates seem to exclude holiday travel, so you can expect higher fares if you’re traveling to Antigua during peak periods.
