Cheap Travel to Europe
This year it is harder then ever to find cheap travel options to Europe. Airfare has been on the rise, and finding cheap trans-Atlantic tickets seems almost futile. Peak-season prices quoted by most standard airfare search engines are a minimum of $1,200 to $1,500 round-trip to London or Paris.
XL Airways of France might offer relatively low fares to Paris on some summer days, but it remains to be seen whether they will ever create an English-language website enabling people to buy those fares on trips originating in the US. However, some airfare search engines are offering to confirm low-cost flights across the Atlantic on XL Airways. For example, vayama.com offers an XL Airways flight that's scheduled to depart on May 23, and return a week later which can be booked on that site for $747 including all taxes and fees.
