The Southwest “Cyber Monday Sale” ends this week!

Fares as low as $39 one way are available now through Thursday, December 2. Southwest has ramped up fare sales recently with a new one every few weeks. However, this offers some of the lowest prices we have seen this year.

Deals for this sale are available through the Southwest website. All you need to do is click “Book Now” and find fares as low as $39 each way. With the flexibility that Southwest offers from a cancellation perspective, it doesn’t hurt to book a trip now to lock in the low prices. If your plans change, Southwest makes it easy to cancel or adjust your travel plans.

If you don’t have Southwest points and need to book a flight using cash, you can still bank a travel credit for a future trip. Remember that anytime Southwest hosts a sale, make sure you doublecheck existing reservations. Southwest has no change fees, and if the sale price is lower, you will receive a credit for the difference usable for future Southwest fares.

Traveling With Southwest

Southwest stepped up its COVID-19 response last year and has continued many of the protocols. The process was branded as the “Southwest Promise” and currently includes enhanced cleaning, electrostatic disinfectant spray, HEPA air filters and mandatory face coverings for passengers and employees and enhanced social distancing protocols. For more details, visit the dedicated landing page here.

What About Travel Restrictions?

Southwest offers the most up-to-date information on travel requirements or restrictions at destinations that they service.
