One of the few countries where Americans can travel is Mexico, as international flights resumed in June and July. You can score an incredible deal on various airlines to Mexico in the upper $100s to low $200s, with plenty of availability from September 2020 to January 2021.

Whether you’re looking for a resort getaway or want to explore Mexico’s ancient ruins, there are plenty of routes on sale that you can take advantage of this fall and winter.

Most airlines are flexible with booking, such as American Airlines waiving change fees for basic economy tickets. However, you’ll want to keep track of the airline cancellation policies and any coronavirus-related updates.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.

SPONSORED: With states reopening, enjoying a meal from a restaurant no longer just means curbside pickup.

And when you do spend on dining, you should use a credit card that will maximize your rewards and potentially even score special discounts. Thanks to temporary card bonuses and changes due to coronavirus, you may even be able to score a meal at your favorite restaurant for free. 

These are the best credit cards for dining out, taking out, and ordering in to maximize every meal purchase.
