While old standbys like Orlando and Fort Lauderdale top CheapOair’s list for 2020, the results also show that post-secondary students are increasingly using their spring break to visit cities like Los Angeles, New York and Phoenix. 

Budget-conscious travelers looking for a cheap and cheerful spring getaway are advised to travel on off-peak days like Tuesday and Thursday, and to consider flying into neighboring airports rather than major hubs to take advantage of lower average airfares. 

“It’s no secret that Spring Break could be an expensive time to travel but there are a few things you travelers can do to save money and still have a great time. First and foremost, I’d recommend packing lightly and if you can avoid checking a bag – definitely do so,” said Tom Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations in a statement. 

Here are the top 10 most popular spring break destinations for US travelers this year: 

1. Orlando 2. Fort Lauderdale 3. Las Vegas 4. Tampa 5. Los Angeles 6. New York 7. Fort Myers 8. San Juan, Puerto Rico 9. Phoenix 10. Miami
