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.
Bermuda is one of my favorite destinations in the world, even without considering that it’s a very short flight from a handful of cities on the East Coast. At just 90 minutes each way, it even makes for a great long-weekend destination from NYC. While your time on the ground won’t come cheap, with prices comparable to those you’d find at top resort towns in the US, air transport costs are often quite low, especially during the off-season.
That leads me to what appeals most about this deal — it’s available during Bermuda’s peak summer season, when you’ll find far warmer temperatures and more hours of sunshine. Just be aware of the cruise ships — it’s a hot destination for cruisers, who tend to overtake the island during the summer months. Still, assuming there’s just a ship or two in town, you can still have a great time without Bermuda feeling entirely overrun with tourists.
The easiest way to find today’s bargains is to search for dates via Google Flights, then book on Orbitz, Expedia or directly with the airline itself.
