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.

Maximize your purchase

If you choose to take advantage of this offer, make sure to maximize your purchase by using the best credit card for airfare purchases, including The Platinum Card® from American Express (5x on airfare booked directly with the airline, $695 annual fee, see rates and fees), Citi Prestige® Card (5x on airfare), Citi Premier® Card (3x on airfare), Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x on airfare), American Express® Gold Card (3x on airfare booked directly with the airline or amextravel.com, $250 annual fee, see rates and fees) or Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x on travel).

The information for the Citi Prestige has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Or, if you're a holder of either the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card or the Alaska Airlines Visa® Business card, you can also earn 3x on eligible purchases with Alaska, making these another great option.
