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 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.

TPG is seeing cheap flights from several US cities into Cartagena, Colombia (CTG). The deals land around August 2018 through January 2019, excluding the holidays, but the dates vary depending on where you depart from. You can fly from Atlanta (ATL), Baltimore (BWI), Denver (DEN), Hartford (BDL), Orlando (MCO), Philadelphia (PHL), Pittsburgh (PIT) and Raleigh (RDU) to Cartagena starting at just $275 round-trip.
