Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
In case you missed the $400+ airfare deals to Europe this past month, Oneworld airlines are bringing back these low fares from several US cities to Europe. We are seeing fares as low as $438 round-trip from United hub cities like Newark (EWR), Houston (IAH) and Cleveland (CLE) to Zurich (ZRH) in Switzerland. You can also find similarly low fares from Delta hub cities such as Atlanta (ATL), Detroit (DTW) and Minneapolis (MSP) to several European gateways. The best part is that these fares are valid starting in September and good for most of the following year, including the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
