Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that 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 American Express Platinum Card, 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.

Norwegian’s offering some fantastic fares on its flights from the East Coast of the US to the islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe in the high season for Caribbean travel. We’re seeing round-trip fares as low as $178 between Baltimore (BWI) and Guadeloupe (PTP), available for departures from January through February 2017. Availability is somewhat limited, given that Norwegian doesn’t fly these routes daily, but if you’re flexible in your travel dates, take advantage of this opportunity to escape the cold Northeastern winter.

Keep in mind that Norwegian is a low-cost carrier and will charge you for certain things that are not typically an additional cost on other airlines. However, even with these extra fees, the total cost is still significantly lower than what other carriers are charging for similar flights.
