When planning travel to Europe you will want to book your tickets early in order to save on cost. Booking at least 60 days in advance especially during high season is your best bet for big savings.
CHOOSE A LESS POPULAR ARRIVAL CITY
When travelling to Europe, the most popular the destination city, the more costly it can be to fly into it. Scandinavian cities such as Oslo or Copenhagen tend to command cheaper prices than cities such as Paris and London.
TRAVEL AT THE BEGINNING OR ENDING OF SUMMER
The most affordable time to travel to Europe tends to be between the months of May and August. However, the lowest prices overall are in the first half of the month of May and the last week of August. Picking this time frame will save you an immense amount of money per ticket.
BUY SEPARATE INTRA-EUROPEAN FLIGHTS
If you plan on visiting multiple cities within Europe during your trip, be sure to book separate flights and rely more on budget friendly airlines as this can save you a chunk of change. Try to fly to a low priced airport and on a smaller, less well known, but still safe airline.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT DAYS TO FLY
If you have flexibility in the days in which you plan to travel, then you should try to depart on Tuesdays and return on Mondays to find the best cost savings for your trip to Europe.
