My husband and I are planning a trip to Europe for three weeks. This is our first trip. We’re thinking of flying out of PDX around mid sept, and come back to the states early October. Our travel dates are flexible. Where should I start looking? Where would be the cheapest place to fly into from Portland Oregon?

Thanks for all your suggestions,

Blue

I’d look for the biggest airports nearest to your proposed itinerary — AMS, ROM, PSA, ZRH, GVA, PAR, LON, BRU. You might find the odd offer in/out of FRA or MUC, but might not be worth it to sidetrack if your itin. is fairly set.

Sign up for sale alerts with Farecompare, Airfarewatchdog, and/or Bing. You can do a few with each service, so you cover many possible sale routes. Hard to say now which will be cheapest out of Portland in mid-Sept. I do think that’s a smart time of year to visit, however—lower airfares, possibly thinner crowds, and weather usually still holding out.
