Deal Alert: Non-Stop Flights to Europe From $225 Round-Trip
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
What's better than cheap flights to Europe? Non-stop flights to Europe.
We're seeing flights as low as $225 round-trip from the East Coast and $392 from the West Coast. Some availability is even over the holidays and who wouldn't love a New Years in Amsterdam?
All of these low fares are in each airline's version of basic economy, so you'll have to pay additional fees to check a bag and select seats ahead of time, and may not be eligible for upgrades.
Some of these fares are available as soon as October, but many last well into March 2020. You'll have to play around with your dates and routes on Google Flights to see what fits your travel dates best.
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.
