These amazing fare wars to Europe just aren’t letting up – and that’s a great thing for budget travelers! I simply can’t keep up with sharing them all, but the one this morning was just too good to ignore. Just like I can’t believe I can fly to Denver during ski season for $39 from Houston, I really can’t believe I can fly to Europe and back on many dates this fall and witner for $400 something dollars. That. Is. Crazy.


These prices are even in the $400 – $500 round trip range through the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. To give one specific example of a crazy low price, here is Houston – Zurich round trip on American Airlines for $442 round trip for a week in October.

Fun in Zurich!

Fun in Zurich!

This sale isn’t limited to just Houston and Zurich, but it extends to American fares being offered in United and Delta hubs including:

  • Atlanta
  • Cincinnati
  • Detroit
  • Minneapolis
  • Salt Lake City
  • Cleveland
  • Houston
  • Newark

…to select cities in Europe. Loyalty Traveler has a good post with the details here, but in reality you should just do a broad search from your city to Europe and see what comes up. I think that Google Flights is the perfect tool for these searches as shown below because you can search as broadly as from Houston – Europe for a week in October and get presented with results. The truth is with these fare wars, things change quickly as fares disappear and other responses from airlines appear, so a broad search is your best tool.

These discounted flights are bookable on Orbitz or the flight booking site of your choice, but remember to move quickly and then do a happy dance for getting in on such a great deal!

    • Not that I know of, though I don’t keep as close of an eye on fares from there. The fares I am aware of are in the post this morning, but you should use Google Flights or similar to see what you can find!

  1. Such good fares but we are in the same boat as you with a 12 month old, so the worst time to travel with a baby/toddler. Hoping to be able to travel to Europe or Hawaii next year once he is past the 18 month mark. Love reading your blog, we have so much in common!
