Since I live in Houston, I like to share good fares I see that are out of Houston, especially on United. It isn’t all that common we see great fares on United out of Houston, but today there are flights available for $135 round trip from Houston – Chicago on either United or American into early March. Thanks @airfarewatchdog for finding and sharing!
If you only want to go for one-night, I’m seeing Saturday night availability in January and February. If you want a longer trip then your eligible departure dates are more varied, but Saturday night stays do seem to be required at least on United.
I didn’t check the American fares as closely, so those rules may vary somewhat. It can be nasty cold in Chicago in winter, but if you want to go visit family or find some find winter activities in the Chicago area, this could be a cheap way to get there! If you need inspiration, here is a guide for winter activities in Chicago….I personally like the deep dish pizza and fireplace related suggestions! I also have reviews of a couple points-friendly Chicago hotels here.
As always, low fares don’t last long, so if you want in then book now and cancel within 24 hours if you change your mind…and pack a warm coat!
