The Very Cheapest Way To Fly To Europe In 2019


Want to fly to Europe for cheap? Iberia is offering ridiculous transatlantic redemptions from just 17,000 miles roundtrip in economy (was 34,000 Avios miles).

That’s half price, from New York, Boston, and Chicago to Madrid. You must book by December 31 for travel January 14 to March 31.

Iberia is a transfer partner of both Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards, and you can move British Airways points over to Iberia provided your Iberia account has earned miles and been open for 90 days.

I would be all over this deal if it were for the summer as it is such a great redemption rate, sadly the dates are restrictive and they don’t have half off in Premium Economy or Business… at least not yet.

How I Earn Avios And Fly For Free

I fly on British Airways Avios (the same Avios that you can spend on Iberia) for free accrued on by my FREE Amex Gold Card. Contact me for a referral which will get you 22,000 Amex bonus points, 2,000 more than the usual offering (when you spend 2,000GBP in your first three months).

I convert my American Express Rewards directly to either British Airways Avios or Iberia miles so that I can fly about exclusively on these.

The UK British Airways Amex Card is also a great way to collect Avios. You will receive 26,000 Avios if you spend 3,000 GBP in their first three months on the Premium card and a 2-4-1 free flight after spending 10k GBP. Our referral gets 1,000 more than the usual 25,000 Avios bonus and you can apply for this at the same time as the Gold card these cards are unrelated in Amex’s eyes. These Avios can be transferred to Iberia Avios provided your Iberia account has earned miles and been open for 90 days.

If you are US based and need points, a brilliant way to load up on a massive bonus of points is outlined in our easy guide.
