We’re seeing great sales all over the US to European cities such as London (LHR), Paris (CDG) and Dublin (DUB) starting at just $232 round-trip. We found lots of deals to London yesterday, and the discounted cities continue to be added.

While some dates are off-peak, what’s great about this deal is that we’re finding peak pricing for cheap, too. For instance, we were able to find flights from New York (JFK) to London (LHR) for under $400 round-trip in June 2020.

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 co-branded credit card. Also keep in mind that while many flights are nonstop, some include a layover.

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.
