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.
While we’ve seen plenty of cheap flights across the Atlantic recently, it’s hard for travelers to keep track of which airlines do and don’t charge for a carry-on bag. So we’ve rounded up the best deals we can find right now to Copenhagen, Denmark — all on airlines that won’t charge carry-on baggage fees — and fares start at just $330 round-trip.
If you need convincing, here’s 10 things to love about Copenhagen and its neighboring Nordic capitals. And, here are some particularly photogenic spots in Copenhagen.
To book, head to Google Flights and plug in your desired departure city. After finding dates that work best for you, book with the airline directly or with an OTA such as Expedia or Priceline. All of the fares below include a carry-on bag. But, if you want to make sure, use Google Flights’ newest feature, which allows you to filter out no-carry-on fares.
