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 or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Here’s one massive deal to Spain — fly from nearly anywhere in the US to Barcelona (BCN), Madrid (MAD) or Mallorca (PMI) from just $400 round-trip on Delta. Availability is wide open from December through May 2017 from most major US cities with some exceptions including the airline’s hubs in Atlanta (ATL), Detroit (DTW), Minneapolis (MSP) and Salt Lake City (SLC). This is a great opportunity to get away from the cold to visit one of the world’s most breathtaking countries, so act fast to snag one of these deals!
