Here are even more cheap fares to Europe!

We’re seeing LOTS of inexpensive flights from many US cities to Amsterdam for as little as ~$450 round-trip in coach.  For example, you can fly from San Francisco to Amsterdam for ~$450 round-trip!

You can check Google Flights for deals on airlines like Aer Lingus, Delta, Icelandair, and United Airlines.

If you’ve been waiting for a dirt cheap fare to Europe, these deals may interest you!

I’m seeing great prices from a several US cities to the romantically-lit streets, charming canals, and quaint neighborhoods of Amsterdam.  Team member Scott has visited Amsterdam, and says the Anne Frank House is a must for everyone!

Amsterdam is a popular destination, so these deals may evaporate quickly.  If you find a cheap ticket, buy it soon!

Many of these inexpensive fares are for the spring.  But search Google Flights for deals on other dates.

I found a coach flight departing from New York for just ~$450 round-trip on Delta in early April 2018.

Even if you don’t find a cheap route to your desired city, you can still buy a cheap ticket to get to Europe, and hop to your favorite city with European budget airlines.  Or take a train for a quick and comfortable trip to Paris!

The fastest way to find these flights is by using Google Flights.  You can see my posts for how to use Google Flights and ITA Matrix to find sale dates.  Then book directly on the airline website, or through a site like Orbitz, Expedia, etc.

If you book a ticket with an online travel agency like OrbitzExpedia, or Priceline you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket.  Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!

Hotel Information

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, and Starwood hotels in Europe!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, 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.  

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.
