It’s never been cheaper to visit Europe, especially Madrid or Barcelona.
With the Euro in decline and flight prices in a downward spiral, there’s literally never been a more advantageous time for US travellers to check out Europe. And when you’re thinking about visiting Europe, you’d really struggle to find a place that’s more fun, or better value, than Spain. These deals from $233 and up should certainly help with any convincing…
It’s not that Barcelona isn’t fun in the summer, it’s just that the immense crowds make it less enjoyable than visiting when you feel like you have it all to yourself. Travel to Barcelona in fall, or early spring is so rewarding, thanks to better prices on everything, easier reservations to all the best Catalan tapas spots and sunsets that make even the best sunset photographers swoon. In Madrid, it’s much the same, and all the better too.
Right now you can fly from a few US cities to Barcelona or Madrid for under $275 round trip, which makes it one of the best deals on the planet. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Airlines are raking in money from the front of the plane at record levels, which is allowing them to drop fares in economy to compete with low cost airlines. The lowest flight deals are available from: New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco.
The Dates You Can Travel
As you may have guessed, there’s a reason for harping on fall, autumn, winter and spring travel. You can enjoy these incredible prices from September 2019 through May 2020, with select dates in each month. As expected, it’s harder to find these prices during peak December holidays, but other than that you’re pretty much good to go.
To lock in the absolute lowest, bargain basement prices you’ll need to stay at least a week in Europe, but with a city like Barcelona – you’ll undoubtedly want to stay much longer. You could always do a 2 in 1 trip, jetting off to Madrid, Malaga, Bilbao or Ibiza during the trip too…
These kind of deals tend not to last too long, so if you’re excited by them, get your dates firmed up and book. Don’t forget that any of these flights can be cancelled within 24 hours of booking for a full refund, if your plans change. No more chit chat though, there’s flight deals to book!
