The Southwest “Small Fares. Big Heart” Valentine’s Day sale is going on now!
Fares as low as $59 one way are available now through February 14. Southwest has been consistently rolling out sale fares every few weeks but some of the travel dates have been fairly restrictive. See the “Travel Dates” section below for details on this sale.
Deals for this new sale are available through the Southwest website. All you need to do is click “Book Now” and find fares as low as $59 each way. Southwest offers flexibility from a cancellation perspective, so it makes sense to book a trip to lock in the sale 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 still have the option to bank a travel credit for a future trip. As a reminder, 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. I have been able to take advantage of this option multiple times with past reservations.
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. This includes information related to ongoing COVID-19 testing requirements, quarantine information, places with entry requirements and destinations that are experiencing travel disruptions. The link to this information is available here. There is also a handy FAQs section that discusses what to expect in the airport and during your flight.
