Why we love it: While we regularly see deals to Europe from the East Coast for under $300, it’s rare that we see the same rate for departures from Los Angeles. Head to Rome for $291 and live your best Italian vacation life.

Why we love it: Scoring award seats for a whole family doesn’t come around often. Airlines love to restrict space until the last second, which means a nail-biting waitlist experience — or worse — getting stuck in economy.

Why we love it: Avianca frequently tops the list of our highest valued points despite being a relatively little-known program. Take advantage of this promotion to get LifeMiles for 1.3 cents each and so you can fly United’s Polaris product to Europe for just 60,000 points.
