Cheap Flights: Houston to Europe $399-$499 r/t – Delta / United + Alliances

[11/21/2016 @ 3:41 PM] Book this fare on: Priceline, Travelocity, Expedia, CheapTickets, Orbitz, Hotwire, BookingBuddy.
[11/22/2016 @ 9:54 AM] United is now matching on some of these destinations.
[11/23/2016 @ 2:05 PM] Fare gone. AA/DL/UA and their alliance partners have all pulled their fares. Removing from deal list.

The details on this page were accurate when this post was last updated (see time-stamps above). Prices and availability of this deal can and will change, given enough time. This page contains links to companies that may compensate this site when you click on their link and purchase travel from their website.

Delta, United, and Alliance partners have round-trip flights from Houston (IAH/HOU) to a LOT of cities in Europe (See list below) starting at $399 with one or two connections. Flights December to May 2017 and also August to October 2017. No Holidays. Expect prices to fluctuate +/- $25.

Here is the list of what we’re seeing. The example dates may not work perfectly with every destination, so you’ll need to experiment a bit.

Note: Some of these destinations will require two stops or long connection times. Most of the smaller airports will have less availability and routing options. For example, Ibiza (IBZ) requires either two connections or long layovers, or both, depending on the days you travel. It may be easier to just book a flight into Madrid or Barcelona and then book a separate ticket to Ibiza.

Note: Google Flights is lagging behind on showing all the available dates, so don’t rely on that site for fares right now. We’ll update this post when the deal goes offline.

If you plan on booking a hotel, use our travel coupon codes to save up to 15% to 20% off. Alternatively, you may be able to save the most money by booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package on Priceline, Orbitz, or Travelocity.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 10 PM the next day, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty. On Travelocity, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancellation” next to the button to purchase the ticket.

Most airlines also offer 24-hour free cancellation with varying policies. For example American Airlines allows you to “Hold” a ticket before payment for 24-hours but once you pay for it you can’t cancel without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.

    Do you guys think these kinds of prices will hold out for July/Aug travel even though that’s peak travel time? Probably wishful thinking.

    • I think some of these may cover August-October, have you tried your dates in August for the place you’re wanting to go to?
