Where to Find Cheap
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.
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.
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.
Google Flights is especially good for comparing flight costs and even includes some of the low cost carriers like Southwest and JetBlue that other search sites may ignore.
Airfare Watchdog not only is a booking site but allows you to ask far fare alerts before buying a ticket.
Hotwire: Specializes in deep discounts on major airlines, including last-minute travel.
Orbitz: Features a special Caribbean section with air and hotels.
Expedia: Another long-established search engine that allows you to compare fares easily.
