European Airfares Discounted for Fall

If you were looking forward to a summer trip, but encountered sticker shock at the European airfare costs earlier this year -- there is some relief in sight.

Airlines have started discounting late summer/early fall fares to destination such as Paris, London and more popular cosmopolitan spots. These discounts offer savings of as much as $200 on the current costs of these routes.

Come late August and September, crowds thin in Europe though the weather remains pleasant and sunny. Peak season in Europe is summer, so when the kids start buying school supplies, it’s a good time for travelers to book airfare.

Current discounts include:

  • Lufthansa: Jet to Berlin, London, Madrid and more from Aug. 28 - Oct. 28. This sale, which ends Thursday night, has each-way fares beginning at $284.
  • Air France: Destinations include France, the UK, Spain, Italy & Switzerland for late-summer travel. Book by Thursday to get these fares, which start at $261 each way.
  • Air New Zealand: West Coasters can get across country, then the pond, cheaper, with this $740 roundtrip fare to London. This offer for travel Sept. 20 - Oct. 26 must be booked by July 18.
  • Several airlines: Flights to Dublin from cities across the country have been discounted, with roundtrip prices starting at $592.

Once you’ve booked your airfares, head over to our international hotel offers to continue the savings.
