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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year). 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.

Should I book travel now?

While we have lots of hope for travel in 2021, the year is off to a slow start in terms of COVID-19 case counts, as we await a wide-scale vaccine roll-out.

Multiple states have restrictions on travel. Quarantine and testing requirements are also present in many states and countries — and the rules can change quickly.

Keep in mind that all airline passengers over the age of two must wear a mask or face covering over their nose and mouth, with no exceptions. Alaska has also phased out blocked middle seats as of early January.

We are really crossing our fingers that things will start to turn the corner by the spring months, though we all know that there are no guarantees. Fortunately, Alaska no longer charges fees if you need to change or cancel your trip, other than the fare difference between your old ticket and new.
