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.

We’re still seeing great deals to Europe, and this time, Italy is on sale from several cities along the East Coast with fares as low as $413 round-trip between Boston (BOS) and Naples (NAP). These discounted prices are valid on departures from December 2016 through May 2017, however it’s worth noting that some routes are seasonal and won’t be available during the winter. Most flights to Rome (FCO) are nonstop, while those heading to smaller Italian cities will likely involve a stop in each direction.

Airline: Lufthansa, Alitalia (Delta codeshare), American, United
Cost: $413+ round-trip in economy
Dates: December — May 2017 (Note that some routes are seasonal and not operated during the winter)
Booking Link: Orbitz or Expedia
