Where to Find Cheap
Caribbean Airfares

No matter where in the world you're leaving from or what island you want to visit, this page should make finding a flight (and the price!) to the Caribbean as easy as a balmy evening breeze.

To use any of the search engines efficiently, you need to know the 3 letter airport code not only for your Caribbean island destination but for its different airports.

Here's the complete list of Caribbean airport codes. With these, you can instantly find flight availability and prices in the major search engines.

When to Book

For international flights, the lowest fares are about 4 months before departure, unless the airline decides to have a sale later. There is always a limited number of discounted seats; be prepared to act quickly.

In the U.S., Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons often are the best time to find cheap fares since sales are usually announced on Monday evening late.

Unless you absolutely must fly on a certain day, keep in mind it is often significantly cheaper to fly on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday since many people book their vacations from Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday.

That is not always the case. The booking sites below often show the fares for different days of the week.
