Finding sub-$500 fares to Europe is much more difficult than last year. In early 2009 we frequently saw flights in the $300s and $400s to Europe…even from the West Coast.
When I saw Las Vegas to Barcelona from $219 on June 9th, I knew they couldn’t get any lower. There was just no way. That was the bottom.
And, they definitely have increased since. However, Aer Lingus is currently having a “wee little” sale to remind us of 2009.
Discount rates from Chicago (see below), Boston and New York are available to several European cities, including Dublin, London and Paris for under $500. Travel must be purchased by January 13th for travel between January 18th and February 10th.
Search for your fare on Aer Lingus and remember to check the “Flexible Date” bubble.
