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.

Been dreaming of a getaway to beautiful Bali? Now might be a good time to book if you’re looking for cheap airfare. China Southern and Xiamen Airlines are offering discounted tickets from a handful of US cities to Denpasar (DPS) from $453 round-trip. We’re seeing the cheapest tickets from Los Angeles (LAX), but New York (JFK) and San Francisco (SFO) round-trips can be found for not much more.

Note that for each of the routes you’ll be required to make a stop. And with that, some of the layovers are longer than others so be sure to check your connection time before booking.
