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.

On top of its already-low fares between the US and Europe, low-cost carrier Norwegian Air is offering even further discounted tickets with a Memorial Day sale. To celebrate the holiday, Norwegian is offering up to 10% off select flights to Europe — you just have to book before May 28, 2017 at 11:59pm ET. The best part of all, these fares are valid for peak summer travel.

The promotion page shows that you need to enter the code MEMORIAL10, but we’re finding these discounted fares even without the code. In order to get the cheapest possible fare, you’ll need to book separate tickets. Book the outbound leg (US to Europe) on the US version of Norwegian’s site and the return leg (Europe to US) on the version of the website from the departing city. You’ll see the foreign currency apepar in the examples below. Many of these fares are from Norwegian’s newest destinations in the US (Providence, Newburgh and Hartford), but we also found some discounted fares from other cities, such as Boston.

Routes: BDL/BOS/PVD/SWF to BFS/DUB/EDI/LGW/ORK
