Via The Flight DealSWISS has round-trip tickets to Athens, Greece, for ~$601 from Boston, Chicago, and Washington, DC.

I found flights from Washington, DC, to Athens, Greece, in February for ~$601!

You Can Find These Cheap Fares to Greece Using Google.com/Flights

These fares are valid for departure through April, and nearly every day is available!  Just be sure to purchase your ticket 3 days in advance.

You can credit your flights to United Airlines, or several other partner airlines, to earn miles if you don’t want to collect miles on SWISS!

What If You’re Not in an Included City?

You can get to Boston, Chicago, or Washington, DC, for less with British Airways Avios points.

British Airways Avios points are great for short-haul flights.  It only costs 4,500 British Airways Avios points 1-way in coach for flights less than 650 miles (until February 2, 2016), and 7,500 British Airways Avios points for flights up to 1,149 miles.

Or if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you could fly to these cities very cheaply.  That’s because with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for almost free on both paid AND award tickets.

Or, you could try to find a cheap paid ticket from your home airport to 1 of the sale cities.  But always run the numbers 1st to see if it’s worth it!

Pay With the Right Card!

Remember to use a card that will earn you bonus points:

If you book a sale flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.

Check out my favorite Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Ritz-Carlton, and Starwood hotels in Europe!

To find award nights at hotels, I use Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.

Here are my posts on all the ways to earn Hilton and Hyatt points!

Note:  If you prefer to book paid stays, check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized!).

Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.  Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.

Bottom Line

Fly to Athens, Greece, on SWISS for ~$601 round-trip in coach!  Get the deal when you depart through April from Boston, Chicago, and Washington, DC.  And be sure to purchase your ticket 3 days in advance!

This is a great price to Europe, and the fare is available nearly every day this winter and spring.  If you want to visit Greece, this is a great excuse to go!
