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.

New Yorkers, one of the dreaded tourist seasons is approaching. Looking for an escape? We’ve got you covered. Take advantage of these deals to major European cities while you can. Flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) and Newark International Airport (EWR) to Paris (ORY)/(CDG), Barcelona (BCN), Dublin (DUB), Amsterdam (AMS) and Frankfurt (FRA) are available starting from $282 round-trip. Warning: some of these deals are offered via budget carriers or in basic economy, so checked baggage will not be included in all fares.

While you’re in Europe, don’t get stuck in one place — use the continental train lines. We’ve cooked up a guide to help you out while you navigate the rails.

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.
