Travel deals: Cheap vacations under $500

Cheap-vacation
By Kate Schwartz

The end of winter is within sight, and I’ve caught a terrible case of Spring Fever, which means a cheap vacation and a little adventure is in order. With zero vacation days left and little money to spend, I’m thinking about a weekend getaway. CheapTickets has dozens of cheap travel deals for 2-day vacation packages under $500, which makes getting away for the weekend easy and affordable. The only problem is which cheap vacation to choose:

  • For a little glitz and glamour, head to Las Vegas. From Denver, a cheap flight plus two nights at a hotel only runs about $336 per person, leaving plenty of money for the slot machines.
  • For those of us in desperate need of a tan, San Diego is a great option. A cheap flight and 2-night hotel stay from Philadelphia to San Diego only costs about $482. All you need from there is a bathing suit, flip flops, beach towel and SPF — sunburns can be brutal!
  • If you aren’t bathing-suit ready, snow pants do an excellent job of hiding winter weight. Spring skiing is invigorating, and the prices are refreshing too. Grab a cheap flight from Chicago to Salt Lake City, plus 2 nights at a hotel, for about $476.

I’m looking forward to celebrating the end of winter — and the onset of Spring Fever — with a cheap vacation to Colorado in April. With cheap travel deals under $500 from CheapTickets, I can choose from dozens of hotel and flight options without worrying about breaking the bank. Check out all of the cheap vacations under $500 on the cheap travel deals page.
