The cheap fares to Europe continue to get better and better, with a wide variety of destinations heavily discounted from New York City between now and March 2020. Note that the best fares are in basic economy, which in some cases is up to $800 less than main cabin coach fares. Basic economy means that you’ll still have to pay for a bag or pay to select your seat in some cases, though you’ll still get a meal and earn miles on these flights. Keep in mind that an airline’s cobranded credit card can get around some of basic economy’s restrictions.

To search for fares, head to Priceline or Expedia.
