I’m not sure if I talked about this on the blog, but I very briefly shared on Instagram Stories a few days ago that the only reason we initially booked a trip to Grand Cayman over other islands is because of the cheap flights on Delta we found. We were open to a ton of travel dates (hence why we went Wednesday-Tuesday) and pretty much any Caribbean island, so this worked in our favor budget-wise. 🙂
If you are flexible with your exact destination and travel dates, I’d love to show you how we found and booked our cheap flights on Delta so that you can begin to play around with and potentially even book your own upcoming vacation!
Note: Most of you know that we are typically very loyal to Southwest, which we always book directly through their website since they do not show up on mass airfare search websites, such as Kayak.com. There’s no denying though that the bigger the airline (such as Delta) = the more places they fly and the more flights per route they have. Yes, you pay for things like bag fees (annoying), but in general we think they’re a great airline. Their international flights are their speciality, in our opinion. They do them right and treat you right!
Warning: Following these steps may induce major wanderlust-y feelings!
How to find cheap flights on Delta
Step One: Go to Delta.com
Step Two: Enter potential destination city, dates, and number of passengers.
*Note: Do not select “Include Nearby Airports”, as this will not give you a search option I am about to show you. If you are willing to fly out of multiple airports, you will search those airports later in the search.
Step Three: Click “Flexible Dates” right under where you select the number of passengers.
Step Four: Click “Advanced Search” right underneath “update results”.
Step Five: Select “5 Weeks” underneath “Dates”, and then “Find Flights”.
Step Six: Start scrolling dates, even months and months down the road!
I love this hidden feature on their site so much because you can easily scroll months and months in advance!
Step Seven: Change your departure airport and possible destination and click “Update Results”.
I also really love this feature because it makes it super easy to play around with different airports. We have three major airports within a two hour drive, so we like to search between Huntsville, Nashville, and Birmingham and see if we find any great deals.
Have fun playing around on this site! Just creating this post had me feeling very itchy with the travel bug again. If you end up booking a trip, let me know so that I can live vicariously through you! 🙂
What is your favorite airline and why?
What website do you generally use to book your airfare?
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
