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 Orbitzor 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.

We’re currently seeing cheap flights from several US cities to Belgium — Brussels, specifically. If you’ve been itching to try those authentic fries and mayo, consider booking now for travel dates between September and May 2019. Flights start at $360 round-trip into Brussels (BRU), departing from cities such as New York (JFK), Baltimore (BWI), Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Miami (MIA) and Washington DC (IAD, DCA).

To book, simply enter your desired departure and arrival locations on Google Flights, and skim through dates that work for you. Once you find a date that coincides with your schedule, book directly through the airline, or an OTA such as Orbitz or Expedia.
