Via Secret Flying, you can fly from lots of US cities to Europe in coach starting at only ~$396 round-trip!

For example, I found a number of flights from Chicago to Paris in March 2018 for $441 round-trip in coach.  This fare is valid for travel through mid-May 2018.

American Airlines is having a big sale to many European cities from nearly everywhere in the US, with some flights under $400!  Check the price for flights from your local airports to:

  • Amsterdam
  • Milan
  • Paris
  • Rome
  • Venice

For example, I found coach flights from Minneapolis to Milan for ~$465 round-trip, from Cleveland to Paris for ~$441 round-trip, and from Tampa to Amsterdam for ~$404 round-trip.

You can check Secret Flying for how to book.  Or see my posts for how to use Google Flights and ITA Matrix to find sale dates.  Then book directly on the American Airlines website, or through a site like Orbitz, Priceline, 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!

American Airlines Tips

You’ll get the first bag checked free for yourself and up to 8 travel companions with the Citi Executive AAdvantage MasterCard or Barclays Aviator Silver card (not available for new sign-ups).  You do NOT have to use the card to pay for your ticket!

Folks with the  Citi® Platinum Select® AAdvantage® World MasterCard® can get their first bag checked free for themselves and up to 4 traveling companions.  But, only on domestic itineraries.

Note: You can hold a reservation on American Airlines for up to 24 hours and cancel without penalty if you change your mind.

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.
