To celebrate “Twosday” (2/22/2022), United Airlines is offering flights to London (LHR) in economy for just 22,000 United miles each way (44,000 miles roundtrip) plus taxes and fees starting at $209.97.

The deal includes nearly every airport with United service in the U.S. and Canada (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and the territories) for travel from March through mid-November – though not all days will have bookable award space. This includes rare, wide-open, peak summer availability!

United typically charges 30,000 miles each way for a saver-level economy ticket (60,000 miles total), so if London is on your list, this is a great way to save your hard-earned United miles. However, to take advantage of this sale, you must book it as a round-trip ticket. You won't be able to book this one-way at the lower pricing.

Thrifty Traveler Premium members got this alert first, and there’s still excellent award availability out there. But don't wait. The sale expires tonight (2/22/2022) at midnight! 


London United deal


While you’ll only find nonstop flights from Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Denver (DEN), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Newark (EWR), San Francisco (SFO), Washington, D.C. (IAD), you can fly from almost any U.S. and Canadian city with United service at these rates. Even airports like Jamestown, ND (JMS) have almost daily award availability to book this fall.

There is no COVID-19 testing requirement for vaccinated travelers traveling to the U.K. The U.K. recently dropped its mandatory testing requirements on Feb. 11. If you aren’t vaccinated, you still need a COVID-19 test prior to arrival, another test two days after arrival, and then you need to quarantine for 10 days.

All travelers will need a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than one day prior to their return flight to the U.S.
