The Deal: Lufthansa just rolled out this winter and spring Europe fare sale, which trumps the competition in terms of sheer variety of departure and destination cities. If you live in the continental U.S., there’s probably a gateway near you that’s included in this sale (fly from one of 16 U.S. departure cities). This sale offers discounted fares to popular gateways like London, Rome, Athens and Barcelona. But also included are some interesting Eastern European and Middle Eastern destinations like Tirana, Sarajevo, Tallinn, Tehran and Minsk. If you’ve been to London eight times and are seeking cheap fares to a less-traveled European spot, pay attention.
Ticket prices start at $198 each way plus taxes and fees, which amount to roughly $200 roundtrip. Travel is valid for departures through April 4 and return flights through April 30; that’s late enough in the year for travelers to find pretty spring weather in much of Europe.
The Catch: Expect ticket prices to rise for departures on weekends, as these fares are based on mid-week travel.
