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 American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through 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.

Cabo San Lucas is always a dream to visit, and all three major carriers are offering flight deals to this sunny  destination in Mexico. Flights encompass a good number of West Coast and Midwest cities throughout April and May, with the most availability toward late April to mid-May. No tricks needed to find these airfares — just find the dates you want by searching with Orbitz, Expedia or directly with the airline itself.
