Finland’s capital has a red-hot restaurant scene and Scandi-chic design shops on every corner. The trek would usually cost $850, but flights are half off via American, Delta, United, Finnair, KLM, and Lufthansa. The largest savings are for dates departing in September or April-May from Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Phoenix, and Tampa.
Drink up in Dublin on a dime. Flights from Los Angeles, Miami, Seattle, Providence, and Philadelphia are available between $300 and $400. The most wallet-friendly fares are in November, January, and March. There are also direct flights from Boston, Hartford, and New York City (JFK) from September through March, and some routes over St. Patrick’s Day.
Live la dolce vita on your own Roman holiday. The Italian city rarely goes on sale, so pick this up quick. American, Finnair, Iberia, or British Airways are featuring routes from JFK for $260 and LAX for $350. Splurge the extra cash on a few nights at the striking new Hotel Vilòn, attached to the 16th-century Palazzo Borghese.
The city of canals is now a bargain to get to. Non-stop flights from Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and Salt Lake City start at $417 on Delta, American, Air France, and KLM. However, if you don’t mind a layover, you can find even cheaper fares out of New York City (all three airports) for $262 round-trip on American, Finnair, Iberia, or British Airways.
It’s rare to find deals to Heathrow, but this time London is in luck. American, Finnair, Iberia, or British Airways leave Chicago, Miami, and New York City (JFK or EWR) at $331. The west coast has it best, though, with direct flights from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and San Jose for around $350 — a steal for such a long haul.
Paris is always a good idea, especially at these eye-popping prices. Book a non-stop flight from Atlanta, Detroit, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City for as low as $428 on Delta, American, Air France, and KLM. There’s also a route from Fort Lauderdale (with layovers) that’s only $372 via American, Finnair, Iberia, or British Airways.
