Flights to Europe have dropped as low as $247 round-trip from various U.S. cities. Most shocking, the lowest fare we're seeing originates from Los Angeles (LAX), which is not something we see often. This is due to a sale from SAS, which is offering basic economy flights for extremely low prices.
Many of the cities have deals to multiple countries, so if you'd prefer to visit a different city/country than listed be sure to check Google flights to see if the deal still works. Additionally, a lot of these deals are available around the holidays so you may get experience the iconic Christmas markets.
To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
