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.

We’ve seen some great fares to Hawaii over the last few months, but if you’ve “been there, done that” in Hawaii, you might be looking for another incredible beach destination. Enter the US Virgin Islands, where we’re seeing fares to St. Thomas (STT) and St. Croix (STX) starting as low as $201 round-trip.

Just like Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands were slammed by hurricanes last fall. And just like Puerto Rico, the islands are bouncing back and need tourism support to fully recover.

To book, head to Google Flights and plug in your desired departure city. Then after finding the dates that work best for you, book with the airline directly or with an OTA such as Expedia or Priceline. If you want to make sure that your ticket includes a carry-on bag, you’ll want to use Google Flights’ newest feature that allows you to filter out no-carry-on fares.
