What’s the Deal?
Link: ITA Matrix
Link: Google Flights
Here’s how to use Google Flights to find sale dates.
If you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz or Expedia, you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket. Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!
I used ITA Matrix to search for available dates.
And sometimes when you go to book, the fare is even lower! I found a ~$334 fare on the American Airlines website between New York (JFK) and Dublin (the return flights are on Finnair via Helsinki).
If you want to explore Europe beyond Dublin, it’s great base to fly on budget carriers to explore the rest of Europe!
And other cities, like Amsterdam, London, Milan, Paris, and Rome are also on sale!
This is a terrific opportunity for an inexpensive getaway!

But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized). Airbnb is a great way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.
