Three great travel deals for spring break (+video)
Find some sun this spring break and save big on these offers from United, Southwest, and JetBlue to Las Vegas, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
With Spring Break fast approaching, we at Brad's Deals can't wait to escape the bitter winter we've had and hit the beach. If you're like me, you'd like the best deal possible on that escape from the cold. Here are some good options for a budget-friendly Spring Break:
1. Las Vegas
United Vacations is running an excellent sale on Las Vegas, offering you up to 50% off your flights and hotels. And, if you travel by 3/31, you'll get 7,500 United miles as a bonus!
If you're not into packages, I'd recommend Hotwire to booking your room. You won't know which one it is until the booking is complete, but you'll know the general area and "niceness" of the hotel before you buy.
Both coasts of Mexico are always popular Spring Break spots, and Southwest Vacations has you covered. Stay at the brand-new Hyatt all-inclusive properties in Cancun or Riviera Maya up to 55% off, and as an added bonus, sign up for their newsletter for an additional $50 off (that's a Brad's Deals exclusive, by the way).
JetBlue hosts some of the best deals for the Caribbean (and they're currently hosting a two-day sale). They offer many flights to some of the smaller islands, like St. Maartin and St. Lucia, for really escaping the crowds of the Bahamas and Jamaica (though they fly there too). With a hubs in San Juan and Fort Lauderdale, getting to the beach is very easy and affordable.
