In Europe, when temperatures drop, so do the prices. Traveling to Europe outside of the summer season almost always guarantees savings — but this year you can get an even earlier start by jumping on this special offer from Lufthansa. The respected airline, a member of the Star Alliance, is offering low rates starting at $532 round-trip between the United States and a number of European cities, including Istanbul, Vienna, Berlin, Warsaw, Prague, and even Moscow.
You’ll need to make up your mind quickly, though, as the sale ends on June 18. The offer is valid for departing flights between October 26, 2014 and March 19, 2015 and for flights returning between November 2, 2014 and June 16, 2015. Rates include all taxes and fees. You won’t be able to book your holiday trip to visit European relatives, though; the blackout period runs from December 16, 2014 through January 6, 2015.
Here are some of the fares we found for early November:
New York City to Istanbul: $532
Washington, D.C. to Budapest: $716
Boston to Berlin: $844
Los Angeles to Munich: $964
Chicago to London: $940
Detroit to Moscow: $1,097
