  • Jun 4 We’re not going to lie. There are not a lot of bargains in June this year. One of two very reasonable dates to fly this month is June 4.
  • Jun 12 If your heart is set on June dates, Tuesdays and Wednesdays all month will give you mid-week savings. This year, the savings aren’t huge, but you’re still better off than flying on the weekend.
  • Jun 21 First day of summer.
  • Jun 29 June 29 gets the dubious honor of being the most expensive day to fly to Europe all summer long. If you choose to fly today, plan on spending nearly $300 on average!

  • Jul 5 July has the most expensive airfares this summer. And because Independence Day falls on what some people will consider a long weekend, July 5 to 7 have some of the summer’s steepest fares.
  • Jul 17 In a month with not a lot of “deals,” the least expensive day to travel to Europe lands right in the middle of the week in the middle of the month. Travel on a Wednesday in July will actually save you $227 on average over travel on a Saturday.

Summer is the best time to travel to Europe, or so conventional wisdom dictates. Most Americans get their vacation time during the summer, and kids are on vacation. However, flights are at their highest during the peak summer travel season, so you have to be savvy in order to score a deal. Use our handy planning tool, the European Flights Calendar to see which dates and days of the week will give you the best prices.

You’ll find the best flight airfare prices in late August and all of September, while Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are cheapest travel days. Saturday is consistently the most expensive day for travel to Europe, with Sunday in a close second.
