United has round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to St. Maarten (SXM) for $274 with an overnight stopover in Newark (EWR). $128/$138 each-way. Flights from January to February. Departures on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Returns on  Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Origin/Destination reversible.

Note: This itinerary will require an overnight stay in New York/Newark, but we figure some of you wouldn’t mind making a day trip into NYC. Stopover times between 9-hours to 22-hours are available. If you want to explore the city, get 8-hours of sleep, and not rush to the airport for your flight to the Caribbean consider the 12-hours or longer stop.

Note: Pay attention to your arrival dates when planning your hotel.

Consider using Tripadvisor’s “Smart Search” function when you begin your Hotel search. If you sort by “Best Value”, you can often find decent properties on sale, such as this one. There’s also a 16% off coupon code that you can apply to this Hotel on CheapTickets.com.

  • 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.
  • 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.
