I am looking for cheap flights to anywhere in continental Europe, preferably Germany, the Netherlands, France or the UK.

Departing from Phoenix, AZ. Looking to travel anytime between May-August. For a 2-3 week trip. Can anyone help me out? I’ve never traveled to Europe in it’s peak season, only in the winter, so I am having difficulty finding anything decent when it comes to airfare.

Thanks!!!

I am leaving from Phoenix, AZ with $2500 for 15 days
London, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich, Berlin

What do you consider decent? I see PHX-LON for $762 outbound May 9-11 returning around June 1 (US Air, bookable on their website), or PHX-LON, AMS-PHX for $864 around the same dates (on Delta, bookable many places) or on US Air for $875 (book on their site). I’d spend the $100 on a multi-city ticket since getting back to London will waste time and cost you anyway.

Edit I have a feeling those dates may be too early for you. I’ll let you know if I see anything else.

Yeah, I’m looking for a mid-June departure at the earliest.

Thanks for your help!

If you can depart before June (sometimes mid-June), or after August (sometimes mid-Aug) you might avoid the higher peak season fares. Outbound date determines fare season.

I’d start with http://www.farecompa… and realize those are not always fulfilled by airlines. Airlines are good at filing low fares, but not good at correcting them when incorrectly filed… but sometimes Farecompare does actually sniff out a legit good offer. To confirm them, go to ITASoftware.com and search multiple cities. There’s a mini-tutorial on how to use it in our new user thread pinned @ top of this forum.

If you can’t depart before mid-June I doubt you’ll find anything much below $1200.
