You've heard of Madeira wine, maybe even had it before. But what if you could sip a glass while sitting on a terrace in Madeira?

TAP Portugal is going to give you the chance to answer that question firsthand, with plenty of spare cash left over for shipping home a case of wine. Prices from New York to Funchal, the biggest airport on the Portuguese islands in the middle of the Atlantic, are as low as $220. These prices are low enough that you could even shop for intra-Europe flight deals to make a grand tour of the continent if you wanted. Availability is widespread and seems to cover major holidays and most weekends from February through October 2020.

Even better, you can get two trips for the price of one: TAP Portugal offers stopovers in Lisbon or Porto for up to five days, free of charge. If you prefer to just pass through as quickly as possible, connection times are as short as an hour and 45 minutes.
