Link: The Flight Deal
American Airlines, Delta, and United Airlines are competing for your business for your next trip to Europe! You can fly to Europe from at least 6 cities for under $496. There are currently sales from:
- Boston to Italy (Venice, Florence, Naples, Bologna, Turin)
- Chicago to Brussels
- New York to Spain (Ibiza, Mallorca, Tenerife), and Italy (Milan)
- Newark to Brussels
- Philadelphia to Spain (Ibiza, Mallorca, Tenerife)
- Washington, DC, to Brussels
To get the deal, you must book a ticket with a stay of 7 days or more for travel in January through March 2017. And you must purchase your tickets 28 days in advance for flights on American Airlines or Delta. And 90 days in advance if you fly with United Airlines.
These are great deals to Europe, and cheap ways to explore more of the continent. That’s because flights within Europe are usually pretty cheap.
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!
American Airlines Tips
Folks with the Citi Prestige can use Citi ThankYou points to purchase tickets at a rate of 1.6 cents per point on American Airlines through July 23, 2017. Check the Citi Travel Portal to see if the same fares are available!
Note: You can hold a reservation on American Airlines for up to 24 hours and cancel without penalty if you change your mind.
You can cancel a Delta booking by midnight the day after you bought your ticket and get a full refund.
United Airlines Tips
You can cancel a United Airlines booking 24 hours after you book to 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.
