Sometimes it pays to plan ahead. Roundtrip flights to Europe in June, July or August are routinely $1000 or more. This year with oil prices on the rise, fares may climb even higher.
When compared to current fares for late winter or spring travel, this summer sale from Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) may initially evoke sticker shock. But if you absolutely want to visit in the summer, these fares could end up saving you quite a bit of krona.
I booked a similar sale in March of last year for an August trip to Stockholm and Copenhagen. When I checked fares for those same August flights in June, prices were $300 higher.
The SAS sale includes fares for Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki -- cities that are often not the first choice for U.S. travelers, but well worth a visit. If you go, here are a few things to know:
If peak summer fares aren't in the budget, visit sooner. This SAS spring sale has fares as low as $334 each way through June 16.
