These Are The Hottest September Flight Deals

If you’re looking for a cheap international flight in the next year, you’ve come to the right place. And at the right time, too.

You’ll hardly believe your eyes when you see the flight deals we found in the last few weeks. We continue to be shocked by nonstop flights to Europe under $250 round-trip and dirt-cheap flights to a tropical paradise for the fast-approaching winter months. We search for flight deals all day, every day, and still … flights keep getting cheaper.

Many of these international flight deals are already gone. But if you don’t want to miss out on the next ones we find, try Thrifty Traveler Premium free for 14 days (and then just $40 per year.)

Here’s a taste of just how cheap things have gotten for international flights based on the 100+ deals we found in the past month. Which of these deals has you ready to pack your bags?

Cheap Flights to Europe Won’t Stop

We thought flights to Europe were as cheap as they could be. But the deals we found in September proved us wrong!

Fares to Europe have continued to shock us this month. No matter where you’re dreaming of going in Europe, you can get there for cheap. Flights to Italy are rarely cheap, but this month we found a few half-off fares to Venice and Milan from $383 round-trip? Sign us up.

Even more shocking was the fare from Los Angeles (LAX) to Paris (CDG) for just $235. You can’t get from LA to New York for that price, and that’s twice the distance!

Not in LA? How about nonstop flights on Delta and partners to over 13 cities in Europe for $243? These are too cheap NOT to book!

Nationwide Deals from EVERY U.S. Airport

Do you live in a smaller city, far from any major airport? Prefer to beat the traffic and fly out of a regional airport? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

We find flight deals from over 100 U.S. airports, likely including yours. And it’s not just the big cities that benefit from flight deals – we’ve seen airfare from even small U.S. cities dropping, too.

The most shocking deal of the month was a nationwide flash sale from 100-plus U.S. airports to Vienna, Berlin, Frankfurt, and Munich from as low as $235. This included fares from Cedar Rapids (CID), Des Moines (DSM), Duluth (DLH), Fargo (FAR), Lubbock (LBB), Peoria (PIA), Reno (RNO), Sioux Falls (FSD), Toledo (TOL), and many more for between $288 and $303 total. Yes, that’s a round-trip price.

You could fly to Germany or Austria for less than it costs to get to California from most small airports!

The other nationwide fare that knocked our travel socks off this month? A smoking-hot business class deal to Italy for $4,700 less than usual! The best part? This was available during the hardest time to get a cheap flight: Christmas. Now that’s how you fly to Italy for the holidays in style!
