Here at TPG, Europe is always a favorite destination. From historic cities, to great food, to awesome hotel award redemptions there's something for everyone.

We're seeing cheap deals from major U.S. cities like Los Angeles (LAX), Boston (BOS) and Miami (MIA) to several European cities starting at just $220 round-trip.

Note that all fares are in each airline’s respective basic economy class. While basic economy means different things to different airlines, generally you can’t pick your seat in advance and limited in your ability to check bags. However, there are ways to defeat aspects of basic economy by using an airline’s cobranded credit card.

Finally, if you don’t see your preferred city listed below, it still may be worth checking as many routes appear to be discounted. We first saw the deals at Scott's Cheap Flights.

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 an OTA like Orbitz or Expedia.
