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.

Although these aren’t the lowest prices we’ve ever seen to Europe, they are pretty great considering the rising cost of airline fuel. Even better, many of these fares are for nonstop flights on full-service carriers, so most will include a free checked bag and meal. All flights will earn miles, too, even with Air Italy, where you can earn British Airways Avios points.

You can fly from major hubs like Chicago (ORD), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), Baltimore (BWI), San Francisco (SFO), Miami (MIA) and Los Angeles (LAX) to Amsterdam (AMS), Rome (FCO), Milan (MXP), Madrid (MAD) and Barcelona (BCN) from as little as $367 round-trip.

There are no tricks to find these fares. Use Google Flights to search for your preferred departure and destination and then book directly with the airline or an OTA like Expedia or Priceline.

Cost: $367+ round-trip in economy, $388+ round-trip nonstop in economy
