At the current time, Southwest does not participate in third party sites and you must visit their website directly to view what their current fares are.
After you determine your destination, use these tips to help find the best flight for the best price:
- The best days to buy tend to be Tuesdays or Wednesdays, 6-8 weeks before your trip.
- If you are able, be flexible regarding travel dates. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are generally the cheapest days to fly.
- Be sure to compare the total cost of the trip – include gas, parking, rental cars and drive time.
- Be on the lookout for special sales and promotions from airlines such as airline credit card offers that may have instant travel rewards such as bonus miles and/or discount travel companion ticket options.
