Last update

Summer travel season is here, and if you haven’t booked your vacation yet, you may be wondering if you left it too late.

Due to increased demand, flight prices are high this year. Some would-be travelers may be put off by the high cost of flying in 2023.

But the key is to keep looking and be persistent.

While your top-choice travel destination may be out of reach, that doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of affordable destinations to visit right now.

Here are 5 destinations that still have cheap flights available this summer:

The Vegas, Nevada

If you want a nice vacation, not a long time, why not fly to Las Vegas for a long weekend?

Vegas has long been a popular choice for travelers seeking fun, relaxation, and a late-night party atmosphere. While it’s famous for gambling, it’s also a great place to catch a show and soak up the sun.

According to Skyscanner and Kayak, Las Vegas is one of the cheapest destinations to choose this summer. Unusual for a destination that is so popular.

The average cost of a round-trip flight to Las Vegas is $315 according to Kayak, but flights from some airports are considerably cheaper. Round-trip flights can be found from Chicago O’Hare for $166 and from Phoenix for just $80.

San Juan Puerto Rico

Do you want to escape the United States for your vacation this summer? San Juan is one of the cheapest destinations to fly out of the continental United States, according to data from Skyscanner.

Nonstop flights are available in mid-July starting at just $133 per person, depending on the city of departure.

Temperatures can climb to 88°F(31)°C) in San Juan during the summer, making it the ideal vacation destination for sun seekers.

Madeira, Portugal

If you want to see Europe this summer and have the budget available to book long-haul flights, then Madeira in Portugal may be your cheapest option.

As well as being affordable, Madeira is popular: demand for flights to the city has increased by 123% year on year. Despite this, it is still possible to find round-trip flights for $588, depending on your departure airport.

Madeira is a small island that is only 35 miles long, but it packs a lot of beautiful natural and historical attractions into such a small place.

From lush forests to waterfalls, quaint villages and commanding castles, there’s always something to see and do.

Add in miles of beautiful coastline and you’ll always find something to see and do in Madeira.

Toronto Canada

If you hope to get out of the country without traveling too far, why not head north?

According to Skyscanner, direct flights back to Toronto in July start from $161, depending on the airport of departure.

The cheapest city to fly to is Orlando, with flights starting at $161, followed by New York, with flights starting at $184.

Plane flying over the Toronto skyline

You may think of Canada as a winter travel destination, but summer is actually the peak time to visit Toronto, thanks to the pleasant weather and abundance of outdoor activities.

Stroll through the Botanical Gardens, climb the CN Tower, or take a boat ride to see the city from a completely different angle.

Niagara Falls is also a short drive from Toronto – you can reach it by car in just 90 minutes. Summer is the perfect time to cross this iconic attraction off your budget list.

Orlando, Florida

You may not consider traveling to Florida if you are not traveling with children who want to get into the Disney bubble, but it is a wonderful destination with much to offer.

It’s affordable, too, with Kayak naming Orlando the cheapest summer destination for domestic travel.

In addition to major theme parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, you can also explore the natural wonder of the Florida Everglades, visit a water park, or relax while enjoying a dinner show.

Adventurous travelers can also hand glide, zip line, or take a hot air balloon ride in the region. There really is something for everyone!
