t’s a new year, and that means new travel possibilities! Only United Airlines is offering deals this week, but they include some flights to New York City and Florida…just in time for a post-holiday getaway!

We should see a full slate of specials beginning again next week, after the holidays are over.

Many of the largest airlines in the United States offer weekly, online-only fares, perfect for quick weekend getaways.

For travel novices, these Internet deals are last-minute airfare specials offered each Tuesday for travel on the upcoming weekend. Most fares are non-refundable and must be purchased immediately, but these specials often represent significant savings over advance purchase fares.
