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.

Mexico City has been deemed a must see destination by many. If it’s on your list, now might be your time to book. A variety of airlines are offering flights from all over the US to the Mexican capital starting at just $214 round-trip. Most flights are non-stop but be aware that some fares are in basic economy or on a low-cost carrier.

There are no tricks to find these fares. Use Google Flights to search for your preferred departure and destination and then book through OrbitzExpedia or directly with the airline. If you want to make sure that your ticket includes a carry-on bag, you can use Google Flights’ newest feature, which allows you to filter out no-carry-on fares.
