United has round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to Cancun (CUN) for $223 with a connection. Flights March to May. A few weekends available. Availability without long connection times is low. I’ve tried to select example dates that avoid long connection times. You’ll have to experiment with this one to find good dates.

Note: United’s website does not seem to show all available discount fares. Before you book you should see if the dates you want are available on an OTA like CheapTickets, Priceline and Travelocity.

  • Example Dates: (CheapTickets / Travelocity) Mar 26 – Mar 30 / Mar 26 – Mar 28 (few seats left) / Apr 01 – Apr 04, 05 / Apr 06 – Apr 14 / Apr 12, 15 – Apr 18 (travelocity) / May 09 – May 13 / May 10 – May 17 / May 11 – May 18 / Other dates: Try the +/- 3-day search tool on Orbitz.

I was able to pull this fare up on CheapTickets , and it should be available on most of the other booking sites. Screenshot taken at 5:22 PM on 03/09/16.


If you plan on booking a hotel, use our travel coupon codes to save up to 15% to 20% off. Alternatively, you may be able to save the most money by booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package on PricelineOrbitz, or Travelocity.

Orbitz and CheapTickets have a search tool that looks for flights 3-days before and after the dates you’ve selected, you should use it if you have a general idea of when you want to travel, but want to see other prices for other dates close to the ones you’ve selected.

If you want to see other deals that are still bookable you should check out the “Bookable Deals” page on our site. It filters out deals that have expired, or have low availability.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 10 PM the next day, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty. On Travelocity, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancellation” next to the booking button at checkout.

Most airlines also offer 24-hour free cancellation with varying policies. For example American Airlines allows you to “Hold” a ticket before payment for 24-hours but once you pay for it you can’t cancel without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
