Do your plans for the new year include traveling more? If so, you may want to pay a quick visit to Frontier Airlines’ website, where some one-way flights are currently available for fares starting at $19 (plus taxes and fees). Whether you’re fortunate enough to be able to work remotely and have the flexibility to spend a week telecommuting from a warmer climate, or are looking for a getaway, here’s what to know.
How to get one-way flights with fares starting at $19 on Frontier
First, let’s address the obvious: The $19 fares—or any others on Frontier or other airlines—are never going to actually cost $19 once you factor in the taxes, and the various fees associated with the ticket.
And, of course, in order to book the lowest advertised fares, you’ll have to travel on specific dates, which may not be conducive to your schedule. But having said that, a lower base fare is still going to save you some money off the total ticket price.
Also, some of the deepest discounts that Frontier offers is through its “Discount Den” program, which involves paying a yearly membership fee of $59.99. But many of the fares currently on sale do not require membership in the program. (For more information on whether enrolling in the Discount Den is worth it, check out this article from NerdWallet.)

How to search for fares within your budget
Whether you’re looking for flights on Frontier in this sale or at another time, give their budget search tool a try. Go to the Frontier Flights page of the website, and scroll down past the first search tool (where you put in the dates you’d like to travel) until you get to the one that looks like this:
Then, enter where you want to fly out of and into, followed by the maximum amount of money you’re willing or able to spend on the fare (not factoring in taxes and fees), and you’ll (ideally) get a list of options. Again, this works best if your schedule is flexible.
Or, if you’re unsure of where you want to go, or are flexible with both your dates and the destination, just enter the airport or city you’d like to fly out of, and it will show some of the lowest available fares:
Once you click on the tile with the sale price, the next page will list both the regular and Discount Den fares.
