Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend 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.
Round-trip flights to Europe for around $600 is already a pretty good deal, but it's an amazing deal when you can fly in premium economy during the peak summer travel months. We're seeing flights for as little as $634 round-trip operated by Air France and Alitalia from several East Coast cities including Boston (BOS), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK) and Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Barcelona (BCN) and Madrid (MAD), with wide-open availability from March through January 2018. Flights in economy seem to be the same price, and premium economy tickets usually go for at least twice this price, so don't hesitate to book this sweet deal.
