This year has seen some of the cheapest flight offers to Europe… ever! Right now the best deals can be most easily found on google flights and we have picked some of the cheapest options to make your life easy!
How about spending a month exploring Europe for $280 return? You can achieve these prices by flying from New York to Reykjavik, Iceland. My prices are based on departure 30th July and return 24th of August, but there are loads of dates with this price, as long as you leave before the end of July. WOW air is very basic and we have reviewed WOW air flights here. But you certainly can’t argue with the prices. Remember, these prices do not include baggage, but it is almost worth buying throw-away clothes when you are away and just taking your laptop, passport wallet and in your handbag.
It is worth noting that you can fly around Europe on Wow or Easyjet for extremely low prices. I just booked a trip on Easyjet Geneva to Nice in August for around $50 and you can get this kind of deal between most European cities on low-cost carriers, if you are flexible on travel times and dates.
Next up is London which comes in at $470 return, routed again on WOW air via Reykjavik, or spend $556 and you can fly direct on American Airlines. London is a great base for European exploration. You can take the Eurostar train direct to Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels from around £30 each way, if you want to visit a number of cities across Europe.
Our favourite hotel in London is the Langham London. We offer a free room upgrade and free breakfast at this and other luxury hotels around the world via our Luxury Travel Concierge, so do drop us a mail to find out what free benefits we can offer you for your next hotel booking.
