  • Jun 5 For the second year in a row, the 5th is the least expensive day to travel to Europe in June. Early June offers good value for the money relative to late June and especially July (when airfares are at their peak).
  • Jun 10 A somewhat surprising finding is that Sundays in early June are a good buy!
  • Jun 21 First day of summer.
  • Jun 26 In general, flying on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays will save you money on Europe airfare all summer long. Traveling on a Tuesday will save you an average of $197 more than travel on a Saturday in June.

  • Jul 7 Saturday flights should be avoided if you’re on a budget, especially in July (the most expensive month for air travel to Europe all summer). The three most expensive days to travel this month are Saturdays.
  • Jul 17 Tied with the 24th as the least expensive day to travel to Europe this month. Travel on a Tuesday in July will save you $214 over travel on a Saturday, in fact.

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.

  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. Our search now lets you compare up to four airlines side by side – see exactly what is and is not included for each ticket you might buy!
  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.
