Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
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.
There are plenty of reasons to love Cartagena. A visit there isn’t your typical beach vacation, as you can just as easily immerse yourself in history, art and theater as you can take a dip in the sea. But if you need another reason to visit, flights to Cartagena (CTG) are on sale from several cities, including Atlanta (ATL), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Philadelphia (PHL). The discounted fares start at $258 round-trip and are valid for dates scattered from September through November.
You don’t need any tricks to get these prices, just 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.
