Editor’s note: The team at The Points Guy loves to travel, but now is not the time for unnecessary trips. Health officials note that the fastest way to return to normalcy is to stop coming in contact with others. That includes ceasing travel. We are publishing travel deals because we should all use this time to think about and plan our next adventures. TPG doesn’t advise booking trips for travel until the late spring or early summer — and even then be mindful of cancellation policies.

As we’re spending our time wondering when we might be able to travel again, airlines are enticing us by lowering fares for travel at the end of the year and into 2021. Today’s super-low fares are from Barcelona (BCN) to Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington (IAD).

These particular cheap fares are with a variety of airlines and all originate in Barcelona. There are direct flights to some cities with Iberia and American airlines, as well as flights via Lisbon (LIS) to other cities with TAP. What they each have in common is that they are the airlines’ lowest fares, which means it will cost extra to check-in a piece of luggage. If you’re not sure how you’d manage with just a cabin bag, we have several tips for packing that might be useful.

This deal is another great example of how you can save big by starting your journey from mainland Europe. Getting to Barcelona doesn’t have to be expensive, especially if you use Avios on a Reward Flight Saver for as little as 6,500 Avios and £17 one-way. These super low fares even include 23kg of hold luggage.

To book, head to Google Flights and set the departure airport as Barcelona (BCN) and the arrival airport as one of the six destinations in this deal. Once you’ve got the flights you want, choose one of the booking options that takes you directly to an airline’s website to make sure you earn your air miles and are ATOL protected.
