A Southwest Sale for International Destinations from $71 – A Tropical Sale

Written by Charlie

This is a different Southwest sale – one that will take you to international destinations. With tickets starting at just $71 for one way travel, this could be a great time to get some good deals for winter, tropical travel.

Southwest is taking a bit of a Thanksgiving breather from domestic sales, it appears. Instead, they have a sale for international destinations that starts at just $71. If you want to take some time this week (or even over Thanksgiving dinner as it does not expire until that night), talk with family and friends and plan a nice, tropical getaway this winter! Sure, many of the origination cities already have some great sunshine, but sometimes seeing it from an international beach just makes it look better!

The cheapest option is from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Cayman – at just $71 for that one-way trip. The return will cost more but that is a great starting price! Of course, you can use points as well but remember that flights from these international destinations will have additional taxes and fees.

The cheapest ticket is this route – just $71 for a oneway ticket!

International flights are some of the best ways to really enjoy the Southwest Companion Pass as well! If you have not earned it yet and you want to plan it for next year, you could always book one ticket for yourself now and, as long as there is a seat on the flight, you can add that companion for free (with taxes and fees) anytime before your departure!
