It’s a little counter-intuitive, isn’t it: peak-season travel at bargain prices? But that’s the story at USTravel. Let’s review this week’s Top 10 Bargain Air Fares:

10. Anchorage-Minneapolis. Both Delta and Sun Country are offering nonstop flights. Thank Sun Country for driving down the price. Fly in July for $482 roundtrip all in. After Aug. 10, 2011, the price drops to $456 roundtrip all in.

9. Anchorage-Chicago. Delta has the least-expensive fare to the Windy CIty, starting Aug. 10. Just $435 roundtrip all in.

8. Anchorage-Washington, DC. Both Delta and Alaska have good fares, starting Aug. 10, 2011. Delta has more seats–more options. From $475 roundtrip all in.

7. Anchorage-Phoenix, AZ. Another country heard from: USAirways offers nonstop service between Anchorage and Phoenix. Starting Aug. 10, 2011, the price is $495 roundtrip all in.

6. Anchorage-San Francisco/Sacramento. Ah, a double-feature! Both San Francisco and Sacramento are on sale from Anchorage with Alaska Air: $415 roundtrip all in.
