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.

If you’re looking to spend some time in the sun and sand, check out these great deals to several warm-weather destinations in May. Delta, United and JetBlue are offering discounted fares to San Juan (SJU), Panama City (PTY), Barbados (BGI) and Bermuda (BDA) starting at just $217 round-trip. You can book these flights by heading to Google Flights, searching for the itinerary you want and then ultimately completing the reservation through each airline’s website. If you decide to book one of the JetBlue fares to Barbados or Bermuda, be sure to use the new JetBlue Plus Card, which will earn you an extra 6 points for every dollar spent on JetBlue purchases, plus a free checked bag and other perks.
