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.
This week, we’ve seen tons of $400-range fares to Europe, but there are deals to Asia to be had as well. United and EVA Air are offering fares from several US cities to Hong Kong (HKG) from just $556 round-trip. These trips involve a stop in each direction, but it’s a small price to pay for such a good deal to one of Asia’s more expensive cities to fly to. Fares are valid for departures from the end of November through mid-December 2016. These will likely go quick, so act fast if you want to take a trip to Asia this holiday season!
