Act fast for great deals on flights to many of the top cities in Europe for less than $400 round-trip.

This is a wide-ranging sale on flights to Europe with availability on American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue, Tap Air Portugal, SAS, United Airlines and others.

The best deal I found was for $358 from Newark (EWR) to Paris (ORY).

It’s easy to find deals, though, including a bargain for $392 from Boston to Barcelona or for $387 on SAS from Los Angeles (LAX) to Stockholm (ARN).

Do some digging, because flights to almost every city in Europe are on sale.

The deal was originally sent out by Thrifty Traveler to its Premium members, who are notified about cheap flights, award flight sales and business-class deals by email for $7.99 monthly or $49.99 annually.

Sample flights

There are a ton of possibilities with this fare sale. I found fares for under $400 from multiple U.S. cities to multiple European capitals.

Keep in mind that some of these fares are basic-economy tickets, so you will pay extra for seat selection, early boarding and bags, and you may not earn elite status credit or miles on some fares.

Here are a few great deals.
