Deal Alert: Flights to Colombia From $258 Round-Trip
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend 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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the 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.
Flights to Colombia are on sale for as low as $258 round-trip. You can fly from Orlando (MCO), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Miami (MIA), Nashville (BNA), Washington DC (DCA), New York (JFK/LGA), Boston (BOS) or Atlanta (ATL) to Bogotá (BOG), Cartagena (CTG) and Medellín (MDE).
Fares on legacy carriers like American include a checked bag and seat selection, while JetBlue tickets won’t come with free checked luggage.
