Top 5 Cheap Ways to Get to Europe Using Miles and Points!

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!

Planning a Summer Getaway to Europe? I’ll Show You the Cheapest Ways to Get There!

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.

Normally, the sign-up bonus is 30,000 miles after you spend $1,000 in the 1st 3 months.  So this is a better deal!

Our $27,000 Vacation to the Maldives for ~$4,300 & How You Can Do It Too: Part 2 – Lufthansa New (& Old) Business Class From the US to India

Emily Jablon:   Daraius and I used our miles and points to have a fabulous honeymoon in Bora Bora.

We heard that the Maldives Islands rivaled the beauty and splendor of Bora Bora, so we planned a trip to decide for ourselves!

The Maldives is known for its luxury resorts, and most resorts have their own private island.  There are beautiful white sand beaches and crystal clear blue water.  The islands also have fantastic snorkeling and scuba diving!

We booked 5 nights using Hilton points at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.  The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is a 30-minute seaplane ride from Male, the capital of the Maldives.  We booked this trip to make the most of our Hilton points before the Hilton devaluation last year.
