Right about now is the time when those who haven’t been planning a spring break getaway for months start to feel the FOMO.

But—good news—there’s still time to reserve a spot in a beachfront lounger at some of the most popular spring break destinations. And even better news: It won’t cost you your life savings.

Skyscanner.com recently compiled a list of spring break hot spots that are actually really affordable to fly to during the busy months of March and April, and many of our warm-weather faves made the cut.

Perennial party cities like Cancun and Punta Cana are among the affordable options, with some round-trip flights coming in at under $250. West coasters can also head to Mexico’s Pacific side to play in Puerto Vallarta, another perenially popular spot that’s also cheap to get to. Those looking for a quick weekend escape can head to Nassau, an easy and affordable 45-minute flight from Miami.

As much as we love catching rays in Mexico and the Caribbean, don’t overlook a quick domestic getaway to someplace like Miami or San Francisco. More than most destinations, these cities deliver the greatest deals for last-minute travel over spring break. According to 2017 data, domestic flights can be booked as little as four weeks in advance for a bargain, with the cheapest flights found seven weeks before travel for San Francisco (20% savings), and nine weeks prior for Miami (19% savings).

And with that revelation, we’re off to pack our beach bags.
