I’ve explained why The Flight Deal is a website that every traveler needs to be aware of because of the cheap airfare deals they post. Today they’ve found some great deals from the US to Europe that are going for under $700 round trip, with some as low as $400. These fares are available from cities throughout the US and available through mid-May 2015, except for the two weeks prior to Christmas.
As you can see, you can fly Swiss, which is an excellent airline, and still get a great price. I prefer booking with Orbitz or Priceline since they allow easy cancellations but you can book with your favorite airline website. As a reminder, these airfares are all 100% refundable within 24 hours of booking it, so this is one of those deals where you just want to book now and figure out the details later. I know many people that book multiple trips/dates and then try to figure out the rest of their plans, then cancel all the dates that they decide don’t work.
These aren’t amazing deals, but they are far less than you would normally get and I’d consider them to be a “hot” deal. For those of you that look at these on a cent-per-mile basis, these fares break down to roughly 4 cents per mile. Anything under 5 cents per mile is usually an excellent fare.
