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 11 p.m. 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.

Time to cross the UAE off your bucket list because flights to Dubai are going from $696 round-trip. Deals are on Air Canada and you can originate from various US cities throughout the spring of 2020. Before you start booking your accommodation, be sure to check out our points and miles guide to Dubai so you can get the most out of your trip.

Note that these low fares are available in Air Canada's standard economy, which means that you'll be able to change or cancel your flight for a fee, are eligible for upgrades and will earn Aeroplan miles on your flights. However, you will have to pay an additional fee if you want to chose your seat in advance or check more than one bag.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
