pragueEvery Tuesday, we’ll feature the best travel bargain we’ve seen all week right here, on our blog. Be the first to find out which deals make the cut by subscribing to our blog (top right) or signing up for our weekly deals newsletter.

The Deal: Lufthansa just announced this timely spring Europe fare sale, which features warm-weather flights to dozens of destinations on the Continent. Depart from one of 15 U.S. gateways and fly to a wide selection of European cities, including popular spots like Athens, London, Paris, Venice, Milan, Prague, Amsterdam, Rome and more. Fares start at $242 each way plus taxes and fees, which generally amount to about $200 roundtrip.

If you’re planning on flying to Europe within the next few months, don’t wait. Fares across the pond will rise significantly as the weather gets warmer. Expect roundtrip flights for travel to Europe in late June, July to top $1,000 — making this Lufthansa spring deal, which covers travel in April, May and early June, a particularly enticing offer.

The Catch: These low fares apply for weekday travel only. A $50 weekend surcharge applies each way for flights departing on Saturdays and Sundays. Also, a Saturday-night stay is required, so keep this in mind when putting together your itinerary.

The Competition: Air France is running a similar spring Europe sale, with fares starting at $277 each way plus taxes and fees.
