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.

Norwegian is offering some jaw-dropping fares across the Atlantic to Dublin, with flights as low as $229 round-trip this fall or $280 round-trip during St. Patrick’s Day. Meanwhile, United is attacking American Airlines’ and Delta’s hubs with some tempting fares.

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.
