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.

If you’ve been waiting to book your flights to the happiest place on earth — Disney World that is — or elsewhere in Florida, now’s the time. American, Delta, JetBlue and United are currently offering flights to Orlando (MCO), Miami (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) from major cities across the US, such as Atlanta (ATL), Chicago (ORD) New York (LGA), Boston (BOS) and Los Angeles (LAX), among others, from just $44 one-way.

Aside from those offered by JetBlue, all of the lowest fares book into basic economy, meaning added fees and more restrictions in return for the attractive price. Fortunately, you can combat some of the negative aspects of basic economy by using your airline elite status or a carrier’s co-branded credit card. But if you want to upgrade to standard economy, you can do so for as little as $15 one-way.
