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.

United’s offering discounted fares to Europe from around the US for early 2018 travel. You can fly with the carrier and some of its Star Alliance partners, such as Air Canada, Lufthansa and Swiss, to destinations throughout Europe. We’re seeing round-trip fares starting at $353 from Boston (BOS) to Brussels (BRU).

Availability is pretty wide open for most routes from January through March 2018. To search, use Google Flights’ calendar search function and either book through the carrier, Orbitz or Expedia.
