Southwest has round-trip flights from Dallas (DAL) to San Francisco or Oakland (SFO/OAK) starting at $120, NONSTOP. $61 each-way. Flights from July to August. SFO availability is sparse. Origin/Destination reversible.

Note: You may want to fly into OAK instead of SFO since they’re both connected via BART. Alternatively, you may want to fly into SFO, but out of OAK since there is more OAK availability on the returns.

Note: You can save an additional $50-$150 if you book your Flight+Hotel together as a package on Southwest Vacations, and use either the PLANSAVE or FREEDOM coupon-codes. Coupons expire on 07/09/18. Before you commit, always compare the prices of the individual Flights and Hotel with other hotel booking sites like Tripadvisor.

  • Tips: Rent a car for cheaper by using Priceline’s “Express Deals”. The rental car company will be hidden until after you purchase, but this allows those companies to undercut the published rate indirectly. You can remove low quality companies from those hidden results. The trick is to use the quality filter on their website to remove any rental car company with a review rating under 7.0 and then pick the deals that survive the filter. Note that the quality filter is only available on the desktop/web version of the Priceline website and isn’t available on the mobile version.
  • Tips: The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card allows for 1-to-1 point transfers to several airline loyalty programs. Booking with points is a good alternative to paying with cash when the price of airfare is high. Here is the current list of Chase Sapphire transfer partners: United, Southwest, jetBlue, British Airways, Iberia, Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Air France, KLM, Virgin Atlantic, Aer Lingus, and Air Canada.
  • Tips: Use Tripadvisor to create a Hotel “short list”. First, plug in your dates and destination. Then select “Sort by Traveler Ranked”. Finally, select the “Traveler Ranking” filter to show “only 4* and up”. Use this resulting “short list” of hotels to find the cheapest one with a high ranking.
  • Tips: Hotel rates for Weekend dates are usually higher than the rates for Sunday through Thursday. Tripadvisor has a color-coded date calendar, red when the average hotel price for that day is more expensive, green for less expensive. You can use this to get an overview of what dates in the month are at a discount.
  • Tips: Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability. Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on BookingBuddy, Skyscanner, and Kayak to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal.
