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.
Fantastic deals are available for those who want to head to Amsterdam.
You can fly from Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), Washington DC (IAD), Denver (DEN), Chicago (ORD), San Francisco (SFO), Houston (IAH) and Seattle (SEA) to Amsterdam (AMS) from $300 round-trip. Most flights are operated by United and nonstop — but still in basic economy, so you won’t get a free checked bag or seat assignment. There seems to be solid prices from other smaller cities United flies from like Santa Rosa (STS) and Nashville (BNA) — so even if you don’t see your airport listed it’s worth plugging it into Google flights.
