Orbitz and CheapTickets have 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 apply the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post. Booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package on Southwest Vacations will probably save you more money than if you were to book separately. You should compare both the package costs to booking your flight and hotel separately, sometimes you’ll find a good bargain, but not all the time. So do your homework before finalizing your purchase.
Southwest never charges a change or cancellation fee. If you cancel within 24-hours they will reverse the credit card charge. If you cancel before your flight, they will give you a travel voucher that you can apply for future travel valued at the full price you paid. Voucher isn’t transferable and expires after 1-year, but it beats getting hit with a change fee. Basically, what this means is when you see a good sale like this on Southwest, you can lock in the price. If it goes lower, cancel the ticket and re-book the better price.
