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 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.

Right now we’re seeing some great fares from the West Coast to Copenhagen and Stockholm. We’ve seen fares around $400 round-trip from the West Coast before, but what’s rare about this deal is that there’s plenty of time to plan, since these fares are available for travel in October and November of 2017. These flights are also on full-service carriers, so there’s no need to pay extra like on most deals to Scandinavia on budget airlines.
