Now is the time to start planning your next trip to Las Vegas, thanks to cheap airfare from across the country. Vegas is a great destination for newbies and regulars alike – there’s always a new experience to experience or a sight to see.
Right now we’re seeing airfare for as low as $63 roundtrip from Los Angeles (LAX), Dallas (DFW), Chicago (ORD), Oakland (OAK), and Denver (DEN) to Sin City. Fares can usually climb to over $100 round trip, so you’ll need to act fast if you want to take advantage of these cheap fares.
Travel dates tend to be spread out between November and December and include both short breaks and those lasting longer than a week. If you have flexible travel plans, you can even plan a longer stay around the Thanksgiving holiday.
Most of these fares are with Spirit Airlines, which has a reputation for charging passengers perks typically included with other carriers. For example, if you wish to bring anything other than a personal item, including carry-on and checked baggage, you will need to pay extra. However, if you can pack light with just a backpack on a short weekend, these are some seriously great fares you won’t want to miss.
Here are some examples of cheap Vegas tickets you can book now.

How to book your flights
If your mind is now set on heading to Vegas, be sure to book your flight the right way to maximize what you get for your purchase. For example, there are a number of credit cards that offer additional rewards or benefits when you book travel with them.
The Platinum Card® from American Express is widely considered the best card for booking flights. You will earn 5 points for every $1 spent on flights booked directly with an airline or through Amex Travel when using Amex Platinum. So if you book that $77 round-trip flight directly with United Airlines, you’ll earn 385 Amex points, plus miles in United’s MileagePlus program.
Alternatively, you can book these flights with a card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which earns 3 points per dollar on travel, including flights, and 5 points total on air travel if purchased through Chase Ultimate Rewards. Then, when you’re ready to book your hotel, you can use the same card to earn 3 points for hotel and home rental bookings, or 10 points total when booking through Ultimate Rewards.
And if you plan to book with an online travel agency like Price lineconsider booking your flights with a credit card that earns points on all travel, not just travel booked directly with airlines or through an issuer’s booking portal.
