In celebration of its new daily flight to Miami, Turkish Airlines is currently offering deals from Miami to various European destinations for as little as $636 round-trip in economy. The fares are valid for departures from October 25, 2015 to March 10, 2016, with blackout dates from December 17 to December 26, 2015.
You can nab Miami to Luxembourg for $636 and MIA to Gothenburg, Sweden, for $648. Fares to the most popular tourist destinations are a bit higher, but not much; Miami to Rome is going for $691, and MIA to Berlin currently costs $713. Note that all of these trips entail a connection at Istanbul (IST), Turkish Airlines’ hub.
Maximize Your Purchase
Unfortunately this deal books into Turkish’s “W” fare class, which doesn’t earn miles on Star Alliance partner United. You can earn miles in Turkish’s own Miles and Smiles program, but only at a rate of 25% of the miles flown. Fortunately, you’ll still earn extra points or miles by booking with a credit card that offers bonus points for travel purchases. For example, the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card will earn you two points per dollar, while the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card offers 3x on airfare.
