[HOT DEAL] Delta flights to Europe for 42,000 SkyMiles (Round-trip)
Important Update: Flights from almost all Delta cities to London are 42k SkyMiles in Coach or 87k SkyMiles in Delta One (First Class)! Click here for more info!
Hot off the press! All SkyMiles program members are eligible to fly to Europe, from select cities, for only 42,000 SkyMiles round-trip! This is 18k less than the 60k Skymiles typically required to fly round-trip to Europe. Travel must begin between March 4th and May 31st, 2016. All trips must be at least 7 days long to qualify. I would recommend booking ASAP as I’m not sure how long award inventory will last. Book by February 18th.
This sale is only for Delta Medallion Elites and cardholders of Delta American Express credit cards, but it appears open to anyone! I logged into Mrs. TT’s Skymiles account and was able to pull up the same deal! The incredible thing is there is a lot of nonstop flights available, even for two or more people! Normally there is very limited available award space for nonstop flights. This is a rare sale and you better move quick because when word gets out most of the flights will be gone!
Thrifty Tip #1: Don’t live in one of the listed cities? Use points and miles to get there! Mrs. TT and I use positioning flights all the time if we find a great flight deal. We highly recommend the Southwest Companion Pass to get around the US for cheap. If you frequently travel with a significant other, there is no better deal in the points game!
It’s no secret that there is more competition for European routes this year with new budget carriers such as Norwegian and Wow Air, and the global economy is still a little shaky. The recent events in Paris and the refugee crisis has also no doubt reduced tourist and business travel to Europe. It’s obvious with the amount of recent sale fares that they’re having trouble filling seats. If I wasn’t already headed to Istanbul in May on Delta I’d be snagging one of these fares myself!
