Spring hasn't yet sprung, but there's no time like the present to plan your next getaway. Travel Pirates released some goodies this week for top European destinations to jet off to on the cheap.

From now through May, there are some crazy good deals on airfare from major U.S. airports.

Those seeking to save some big bucks with their passport in hand should look no further than Europe.

From iconic cities to natural wonders, Americans can fly nonstop to some of the best destinations across the pond.

These are the 5 cheapest European destinations for Americans to fly to this spring:


There are few destinations in Europe more iconic than the beautiful, historic city of London. Right now is the best time to score on dirt-cheap airfare from the States.

The 3 best deals are from New York City, Miami, and Orlando, with so much savings you might think it's a scam!

This deal is definitely not too good to be true, however. Flight sales come and go throughout the year and this one has been verified.

Spring is one of the best seasons to explore the lively streets of London in splendid weather on the obligatory double-decker bus tour.

To get here, take advantage of nonstop flights as low as $97 one way from NYC and in the $100s from both Orlando and Miami.

The capital city of the winter wonderland of Norway is a gorgeous getaway in spring too. I mean, have you seen the vast fjords of Bergen and other unpronounceable Nordic towns?

Norway is home to fairy-tale streets and notoriously high prices upon arrival, but hey, at least you can arrive with dirt-cheap airfare.

While there are multiple direct flights to Oslo through various airlines in the U.S., the one standing out amongst the rest is the nonstop route from Miami.

Travelers can find flights as low as $127 this spring.

Speaking of icons, Paris might be the most recognizable city in the world. Although it is no longer the most visited city in the world, that doesn't mean you shouldn't plan a trip.

The famous City of Light is perfect for a travel splurge with all the delightful eats and world-class museums.

Spring may be the best time of year to visit Paris in 2024, given the summer Olympics will undoubtedly spike in price and drop in cultural experiences.

Travelers won't have to stretch their travel budget since airfare is super affordable right now, especially from New York, Miami (nonstop), and Los Angeles, with direct flights often found between $134 – $273.

Spain seems to be on every traveler's wishlist nowadays, with no signs of slowing down. Super cheap, affordable flights are just another reason to visit, as if you needed one!

The immensely cultural city of Barcelona is a draw any time of year, but those daydreaming of better weather can look forward to blissful days of sunny 60 – 70 degrees.

With perfect weather for walking around this eye-popping city, Barcelona is a never-ending playground of sightseeing, trendy bars and fun festivals come springtime.

Although it's not a nonstop flight, the price is worth the sacrifice of making a pitstop along the way. Travelers can fly to Barcelona as low as $137 from NYC.


It's that time of year to add Iceland back to your bucket list with frigid weather and, hopefully, volcanic activity coming to an end.

Nature is in full bloom, so tourists can take in the otherworldly landscapes, picture-perfect waterfalls, and, of course, the famous Blue Lagoon for an epic spa day.

Iceland is another country not known for being cheap, to say the least. However, affordable flights can be found year-round through their own low-cost airline PLAY, which serves many U.S. cities.

Now is the time to jump on these savings with nonstop flights from Boston and Washington, DC, as low as $140.

Which Airlines To Take

Travel Pirates research was conducted mostly through a pair of Europe's most notable low-cost carriers.

To score these great deals, it's best to search for your desired dates through PLAY Airlines and Norse Atlantic Airways.

Given the conflictive situation of the fight for the independence of Catalonia with respect to the rest of Spain, I do not recommend a visit to this area now, however I strongly recommend a visit to Andalusia, which represents the authentic cultural roots of Spain and offers enormous possibilities from the point of tourist view.
