Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Cheap flights from multiple cities across the United States to top European destinations are now available from just $283 round-trip. Flights are available beginning in September through early 2020. A few dates are excluded including the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Deals are available throughout the week, with the middle of the week offering the cheapest flights.

All flights included in this deal are on major airlines such as American, Delta and SWISS. However, some flights will be booked into basic economy. While you will be able to bring a carry-on bag and, in most cases, a checked bag at no charge, seat assignments will only be available for a fee.

Finally, it’s important to note the connection time on flights operated by TAP Portugal. Some flights offered by TAP Portugal are only available with an overnight stopover in Lisbon or Porto.

There are plenty of points hotels available throughout the European cities included in this deal. Check out our reviews of the Le Meridien Etoile in Paris, the Apollo Hotel Amsterdam, and Park Hyatt Zurich for inspiration.

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.
