Amazing $400 Fares to Europe from Tons of Cities!

Crazy good deals to Europe amazingly aren’t all that uncommon any more, but they are often pretty limited by departure city and travel dates. However, today there is a great deal to Europe that works from dozens of US cities and over a span of many months!

Via The Flight Deal you can fly round trip to Barcelona or Madrid for around $400 round trip via many, many cities other than Delta hubs cities as well as Denver, Houston, and San Francisco.


The $400-ish round trip fare worked from cities like Austin, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Wichita, Seattle, New York, Orlando, and more in my test searches. It works even out of some smaller airports like Wichita and Oklahoma City that also are left out of these sort of deals.

I saw deals not only on Delta, but also on their partners Air France and KLM. The eligible dates started in the next couple of weeks and went through mid-May 2017 for some departure cities. Some cities also have availability again beginning in mid-August 2017 through the end of the calendar. I recommend using Google flights and using a calendar flexible date search to easily spot the cheapest days to fly.


Fun in Barcelona!

We had a blast in both Madrid and Barcelona last year, and being able to go for just $400-ish round trip on a variety of dates is a fantastic deal! You could also use fixed value points to book the fares and keep cash in your pocket while jumping on a great fare. At $400, it would cost you 40,000 points (worth one cent each) to book the airfare, but then you will get 5% of those points back for an out of pocket total of 38,000 points! You would then also earn miles on your trip.
In terms of where to credit the miles, the test flights I priced were in Delta economy V class which earns 50% of the flown miles if you credit to Alaska. That isn’t great, but it is an option that is better than crediting to Delta and only earning miles based on the low base fare paid (unless you are chasing Delta elite status).


If you want some ideas of what to do or where to stay in Spain, here are some posts from our three-generations trip we took last year. As always, book very quickly if you want in on those cheap round trips to Europe!

  1. We just found several RT tickets out of ORD to Hong Kong in 2/17 for $500! Unbelievable! Perfect time for a 30 day Asian cruise!

  2. Thank You MommyPoints!!! Because of you, me and my finance were able to purchase two round trip tickets(5/3-5/11) from Cincinnati to Barcelona for $400. Yes, I said $400.43. The original price was $800.86, but after our Chase Reserve credit and Sky Miles credit the total came to $400.43. We are so excited/nervous because we are getting married in September and our honeymoon is in October. We had no intentions of going anywhere prior to the wedding but when I saw your notification on Facebook, I decided to check CVG even though it is not listed and it actually came up.

    Thank you, Thank you , Thank you

  3. You are awesome, Summer! I hadn’t figured on planning a trip to Spain today, but when I saw your post and saw Austin on the list I had to check. I thought the cheap fares would probably already be gone, but NO! Just got my mom and I tickets to Madrid priced at $405. Better yet, I had a sizable bump voucher that Delta let me use to cover both tickets. So FREE tickets to Spain. Just had to fly my mom to Austin and managed to get that ticket with 25,000 of her miles. So I feel I did really well. Spain wasn’t on my bucket list, but can’t pass this up. And your trip with mom and daughter along (and pregnant) makes me feel like this is do-able. We’ll have 2 weeks. I hope that’s not too long.

    • That is fantastic! You will have time to visit some different parts of Spain and it will be great. So glad you got a great deal and thanks for sharing!

  4. I’m a true novice at this whole deal finder – my husband and I are going to Greece in July (unsure of dates since cousins wedding date isn’t secure) but I want to start looking! Every time I plugged in my home city (DFW) to Athens the tickets are $1,300. Any tips or tricks are helpful 🙂

    Many thanks!

      • Should I just keep following your page (my friend just introduced me this morning) for July deals?

        Thanks for the response!

        • For sure – I would follow @theflightdeal on Twitter or Facebook, but I’ll be honest and say that July will be tough for a great airfare deal. Not impossible, but just not totally likely. Fingers crossed for you!
