Flights: Houston (IAH) to Cancún (CUN) + Miami (MIA) $304 r/t 1-stop

[06/14/2014 @ 3:08 AM] This fare was last seen here: Orbitz.
[06/14/2014 @ 9:51 PM] This no longer looks available for July 4th. Try July 5th.
[06/16/2014 @ 11:17 AM] Deal is dead. Price now $616.

So, what ya doing for July 4th? I think you should go on a science expedition to compare the beaches of Cancun (CUN) to Miami (MIA) for $304.

I found a free stopover component right in our backyard. This fare won’t last. I saw 6 seats left on the outbound leg for my example dates, and I know two of you are probably going to book this as soon as I post it.

You don’t have to do the Miami leg, but I added it since it’s the same price as just doing Cancun due to the free stopover. The rules say you can try LAX and NYC, but I doubt you’ll be able to pull that off. Don’t let me stop you from trying to get it to work though, because that would be pretty awesome if you can somehow get NYC to route.

Stopover component says:

FOR Q- TYPE FARES NOTE – GENERAL RULE DOES NOT APPLY. 1 FREE STOPOVER PERMITTED ON THE PRICING UNIT IN MIA/NYC/ CHI/DFW/LAX.

I won’t go into detail on constructing an itinerary with stopovers, it is covered in our [Budget Travel Tips] article here: [How to use stopover rules when buying airfare].
