Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.

Travel dates are available from now through the end of April with round-trip tickets starting around $500. The deal is available from quite a few cities around the US, including Chicago (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK) and more.
