[10/28/2015 @ 4:21 PM] This deal is no longer showing up on any OTA. It has probably been pulled by United.

United has round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to San Salvador, El Salvador (SAL) for $247, with a connection. Very limited availability. Many dates have long layover times, see the Flight Details section of this post for example booking dates that have good connection times.

Orbitz has 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.

To save the most money, be sure to make use of the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post. Booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package will probably save you more money than if you were to book separately. Packages on most OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline tend to be cheaper than what the airlines usually offer, so be sure to compare the costs on several sites before committing.

Note: OTAs such as Orbitz and Priceline allow free cancellation before 10 PM CST the day after purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy allows you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. After the grace period, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.

United, Delta, JetBlue and Virgin America offer free cancellation within the next 24-hours while American allows you to “Hold” a ticket for 24-hours. Keep in mind that once you pay for a ticket on you can’t cancel it without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.

Note that the DOT doesn’t enforce 24-hour free cancellation on tickets less than 7-days away from departure, so some airlines and OTAs allow it while some do not. On Orbitz, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancel” next to the price of the ticket.

I was able to pull this fare up on Priceline, and it should be available on most of the major booking sites. Screenshot taken at 8:47 AM on 10/28/15.
