Via Frequent Miler, you can fly coach from LOTS of US cities (big and small!) to Europe for ~$530+, with this huge Delta sale.
I found a flight from Atlanta to Amsterdam leaving November 8, 2017, and returning November 15, 2017, for ~$538. And a flight departing Minneapolis on August 11, 2017, returning from Paris August 18, 2017, for ~$597.
These sale fares are valid for travel from July 2017 through May 2018. Meaning you can visit Europe for cheap this summer, or plan fly for less this fall and winter!
Here are the details. And how to search for deals from your city!

If you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz, Expedia, 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!
Note: You can cancel a Delta booking by midnight the day after you bought your ticket and get a full refund.
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.
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.
