The ancient ruins of Rome (and the amazing food!), the romance of Paris (dinner inside the Eiffel Tower!), the theater in London (I won’t mention the food)…
It’s the time of year when folks are planning their summer trips to Europe. Sometimes low-level award seats can be hard to find because it’s such a popular place to go!
So it’s good to have options for the cheapest ways to get there using miles and points!
Here are my favorite cheap award tickets to Europe. If you don’t mind flying coach class, you could get there for as few as 25,000 miles round-trip!

And remember, you don’t have to fly there and back on the same airline.
Sometimes you’ll get a better deal (and more available award seats) by booking 1-way flights on different airlines. Or you might mix-and-match because you don’t have enough points in 1 program for a round-trip ticket.
Million Mile Secrets reader Hemang commented:
I recall a couple of your past posts where you had used airline miles to book First Class/Business Class tickets for travel to India.
Can you please remind me, which airline miles should one accumulate for such a redemption? I am collecting miles on American Airlines.
If I recall correctly, you had mentioned collecting Alaska Airlines and American Airlines miles and using them on other international airlines.

American Express Membership Rewards points are 1 of the most flexible types of points. That’s because you can transfer them to certain airlines to get Big Travel with Small Money on flights to Europe.
Starwood points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points, and Citi ThankYou points are also transferable. American Express Membership Rewards points aren’t the easiest to use compared to Chase Ultimate Rewards points, but there are a few good uses which I’ll describe in this post.
