Tips for Booking Cheap Flights to Europe This Summer

  1. Mix and match flights to get the cheapest flights and best schedules.
  2. Flying into alternative airports can sometimes bring significant savings on flights. Research alternatives to the main airport in a capital city.
  3. Manage your own expectations. Summer is a more expensive time to travel to Europe. Plan accordingly.
  4. Flexibility in your travel dates can bring significant savings. Take advantage of early and late summer fares if you can.
  5. Be prepared to buy when you see a good fare. Remember there are other people searching your itinerary, and everyone wants a good deal on a very limited number of available seats.
  6. Do your due diligence. Research holidays and large festivals in your destination on your proposed travel dates, and try to avoid those dates.
  7. Book early! European flights fill up fast and the lowest economy fares are very limited in number.
  8. Take advantage of our Price Drop Payback. If the fare drops after you buy, you can get a credit for up to $100 per ticket.
  9. Prices still a little high for your budget? Purchase your trip with our monthly payments option, and make your European vacation a reality.
