Friday Flight Deals: The best flight deals of the week

While I love everything travel, I am definitely not an expert yet. I do consider myself particularly skilled in finding good flight deals though.

So I thought I would put this particular “skill” to work and make it into a post, every Friday. That way, you can keep up with the latest flight deals as well ūüôā

This is for people who are looking to get the most bang for their buck and don’t mind going somewhere different because of a good flight deal. It is also for those who maybe have always wanted to go to a certain place and want to keep track of deals to that location. Whatever you are looking for, stick around for each Friday, when I post more flight deals of the week.

Note: sorry to my counterparts who are not in the U.S.. For now at least, all flight deals will originate from cities in the United States.

Helpful hint:¬†I find flight deals primarily on google flights.¬†When you select your dates, it shows you different prices for when you would leave and how much it costs depending on the date you fly back, so it’s a good place if you are flexible and searching around for a future trip.¬†

So here are the best flight deals that you honestly can’t pass up to places all around the world, separated by departure city. Enjoy and happy booking:
