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. 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 beautiful and serene, Turks & Caicos can be quite pricey. Luckily, flights are available from numerous US cities to Providenciales (PLS) starting at just $225 round-trip. Originally featured on Scott’s Cheap Flights, fares are available beginning in September with availability extending into the first two months of 2020. All flights are booked into economy class with flights operated by American, Delta and JetBlue, allowing passengers to bring a carry-on bag on board at no additional charge. Any flights operated by United will require passengers to pay for a carry-on bag.
There’s plenty to do in Turks & Caicos. Use the money you saved on airfare to book a snorkeling tour, go horseback riding, or splurge on a nice dinner.
