Good travel deals seem to come in waves…and the last few weeks we have been riding the wave of great airfare sales to Europe (yes, even before #Brexit). While I hate to sound repetitive mentioning these similar sales periodically as the parameters change, I guess I really don’t mind being repetitive about awesome airfare prices.


What really caught my attention this morning about these fares is that unlike most of the other days this fare war has happened, this time you were able to get a great deal on hometown hub airlines instead of solely being able to book on a carrier that was not based out of that hub. For example, I’ve been seeing great fares on American/British Airways out of Houston, but today even United was pricing the same out of Houston, one of their hubs. I much prefer to book on United to earn and use elite status perks (and often prevent an extra connection along the way), so that sort of price matching really catches my eye when it happens.

Via The Fare Deal Alert, some of the available city pairs available this morning pricing from the $400’s to the $600’s round trip are on United, Air Canada or American or Delta and are available from:

  • Atlanta [ATL]
  • Charlotte [CLT]
  • Denver [DEN]
  • Detroit [DTW]
  • Houston [IAH]
  • Kansas City [MCI]
  • Las Vegas [LAS]
  • Minneapolis [MSP]
  • Orlando [MCO]
  • San Diego [SAN]

With availability to:

  • Athens [ATH]
  • Dublin [DUB]
  • Berlin [TXL]
  • Rome [FCO]
  • Madrid [MAD]
  • Zurich [ZRH]
  • Barcelona [BCN]
  • Milan [MXP]
  • Venice [VCE]
  • Brussels [BRU]
  • Istanbul [IST]

I found flights such as Houston – Dublin in the $500’s round trip on United and similar prices to points all over Europe for travel this fall. If Baby S were a year or so older I absolutely would book one of these for myself for a quick European getaway in the late fall.

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.With these fare wars, things change quickly as fares appear and disappear, so a broad search is usually 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! As always you can take advantage of low fares and keep cash in your pocket by paying with a card that lets you use your points at a fixed value towards travel charges.
