Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
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.
Flights to Belgium are on sale, with prices starting as low as $292 round-trip on full-service airlines. You can fly from Washington DC (IAD/DCA), Baltimore (BWI), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), Chicago (ORD), Denver (DEN), Dallas (DFW), Boston (BOS), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA) and Miami (MIA) to Brussels (BRU).
Flights are available on American, British Airways, Delta, KLM and TAP Portugal although most fares book into basic economy, so you'll have to pay to select your seat or check a bag. However, an airline's co-branded credit card can help get around some of basic economy's pesky restrictions.
Once you’re booked, check out Get Your Guide’s list of best activities in Brussels to maximize your time while on vacation. If you do make it to Belgium's capital and the de-facto head of the European Union, you can eat in an underwater restaurant at the NEMO33 dive center.
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. Then click through to the airline or online travel agency (OTA) to book the deal.
