Take Flight: May Flights Under $450 Round-Trip

Now is the time to book for May because the chances of getting a decent price is bleak for the summer. According to AAA, demand for international travel have increased more than 200 percent compared to 2022. Unfortunately, with the increase in demand, international flights are expected to cost more than 30 percent more than 2022.

Delta is already seeing the demand. The airline’s president, Glen Hauenstein, says international flights are already 75 percent booked for the summer.
