If it seems like it’s getting cheaper and cheaper to fly from the United States to Europe, it kind of is. With a bit of flexibility and open-mindedness, it’s never been more affordable to fly across the Atlantic for a dream-like getaway. Here are a few ways to find the cheapest flights to Europe this year.
Be flexible. If you’re open in terms of dates and destinations, finding an inexpensive flight will be a piece of German chocolate cake. Using sites like Google Flights (https://www.google.com/flights?hl=en) will allow you to play around with travel dates and cities to find the best option for your schedule and budget. Flying during one of the shoulder seasons (spring and fall) and during the weekdays will yield the best results.
But also plan. Booking a few weeks or months in advance will also offer better results as prices tend to be lower approximately six months before your anticipated travel dates. Use sites like Kayak and Hopper to track flights to see when prices rise and fall.
Be wary. A few of Europe’s famous low-fare airlines have faced a bit of financial trouble as of late, so be cautious before booking with airlines like WOW air and Norwegian Air, both of which have been forced to cancel some of their routes between the States and Europe.
Dip into your miles. A European vacation is a great way to spend all those points you’ve been racking up. Look at partner airlines such as Air France, KLM or Lufthansa to spread your points across an alliance with which you have copious miles.
Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.
Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
In the loud, busy and often overwhelming medina of Marrakesh, it can be difficult to find a tiny sliver of solace in which to rest after spending hours negotiating for the best market prices. But one riad truly exemplifies the characteristic of “tucked away,” as it’s located a few connected alleyways from the noise and congestion.
The summer of 2019 will be filled with blockbuster hits. There are some recognizable brands that will perform well and some newcomers that might take the box office by surprise. The season is already starting strong with Marvel Studios finally releasing Avengers Endgame. This massive movie set box office records that likely won’t be touched for years. The film brings an end to the series and fans are not going to wait until it’s available on DVD. Endgame is going to jumpstart the season by bringing people to the movies and reminding them why it’s worth spending money to see a movie in theaters versus at home.
