Good news if you’re considering a trip to Europe this year!
I’ll share with you what I found. And remind you how to earn and use United Airlines miles!
United Airlines Award Tickets to Europe
If you’re planning a trip to Europe this year, consider using your United Airlines miles to fly to Vienna.
Because there are currently a lot of award seats to Vienna open in coach and Business Class on United Airlines’ partners like Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines. From US cities like New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, and Miami.
For example, from Washington, DC, there are coach and Business Class award seats available for 4+ travelers almost every day of the week in March 2017. And lots of award seats for 2+ travelers in coach or Business Class between Newark or New York (JFK), and Vienna through August 2017.
So it’s worth checking to see if you can find an award ticket that fits your schedule. Especially if you plan to travel with your family.
And don’t forget, with United Airlines’ “Excursionist Perk,” you can get a free stopover or a free one-way on round-trip award flights.
So, for example, if you book a round-trip award flight, you could go from Washington, DC, to Vienna, spend a few days in Vienna, then fly to Madrid and spend a week there before coming home.
Or consider booking cheap paid flights on European discount airlines to extend your trip!
