Right now there are fire-sale prices on Delta awards to Europe starting at 16,000 miles round-trip. The cheapest flights are from the U.S. to London and include cities outside of New York, like Los Angeles and Orlando. Normally when we see prices this low it’s only from northern East Coast cities, so this is a great opportunity for West Coasters to pick up great deals.
The taxes and fees on the cheapest trips to London will cost you ~$180, which is standard for flights to the U.K. However, there are other cities in Europe you can visit with much lower taxes. For example, there are awards available for 22,000 to 30,000 miles and ~$60 to Brussels from cities nationwide (including many not listed below).

Just remember, you won’t earn the welcome bonus in time for this particular award sale. Also, Amex only lets you earn an intro bonus once per lifetime per specific American Express credit card, so you’ll want to wait to apply until the rewards card offers are increased and right now none of the Delta credit cards have an amazing bonus offer.
But, these airline credit cards are useful if you want to earn Delta miles and perks on Delta flights (to help combat basic economy), like priority boarding, free checked bags and inflight purchase discounts, then consider one of these Amex Delta credit cards:
- Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express
- Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
- Delta Reserve® Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express
