Cheap Winter And Spring Airfares To Europe
This week we checked the airfares from many US cities to Europe for the next 5 months. For the winter season, 6 US cities stood out as having some of the cheapest airfares to Europe. For travel starting April 13, 2015, San Francisco comes out smelling like a rose for cheap airfares to Europe for spring 2015 travel.
For example, departing San Francisco on April 20, and returning April 27, 2015 to Amsterdam, many international carriers want over $1,477. However, today you can go for as little as $861 roundtrip. That's over $600 per person in savings!
You also need to compare the airfares from your hometown airport to one of the 7 cheap gateway cities listed below like New York City, Washington D.C., Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. You can either drive to the nearest cheaper airport, or just purchase a cheap roundtrip ticket to one of the gateway departure cities. By doing so you could rack up big savings over flying out of your local hometown airport to Europe.
For example, Dallas to Rome departing February 3, and returning February 10, 2015, the cheapest airfare roundtrip on American Airlines $1,447 roundtrip. However, out of Houston, a close drive or flight from Dallas, the airfare to Rome is only $669 roundtrip. Yes, its an inconvenience to drive or fly to Houston, but come one...$700 bucks, is $700 bucks! A family of 4 traveling to Europe during Spring Break could save over $2,800. Folks, that's not chump change. As a matter of fact, it is like getting a 50% discount or a 2 for 1 airfare deal.
Here are just a few sample airfares we found for travel during the first 3 months of 2015. We think they are all are winners compared to the prices to Europe from other US cities.
|New York City to Milan - $535|
|New York City to Dublin - $628|
|New York City to Istanbul - $586|
|Washington D.C. to Rome - $736|
|Washington D.C. to Paris - $758|

|San Francisco to Rome - $840|
