There’s something about finding a good, cheap airfare that I love….even if I can’t/don’t want to use it myself. It’s like finding a curly fry amongst a big bowl of straight, regular, boring fries…..or maybe that’s just me!

Anyway, on to the main point of this post….

There are some great deals available on flights to Miami starting right away and continuing on to summer next year. The icing on the cake is that there are some pretty decent fares across all the 3 major alliances.

Departure cities will vary from airline to airline but, to give you an idea, I’ve seen fares that include departures from Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Milan and Oslo.

Availability isn’t limited to a few days here and there either, it’s wide open for the next 10 months:








You can even find great fares during the European Easter vacations…..




The title of this post says “from $415”, which is technically true…..


…..but that fare only seems to be available on a single date (and it’s an open-jaw itinerary).

Still, there’s quite a bit of availability in the mid $400’s and you’ll find fares under $500 on SkyTeam, OneWorld and StarAlliance throughout the next 10 months.


There’s more good news in that a lot of these fares don’t even require a stop-over…..

….so that limits the number of unnecessary changes and limits the opportunities for the airlines to lose your luggage!

The number of nights you can stay is pretty good too. I only searched for trips lasting between 2 and 17 nights and  the choice seemed pretty good to me, although there is a minimum stay requirement of 3 nights….

Looking at a few of the airlines’ “maximum stay” restrictions would seem to indicate that you may be able to get these fares on stays of up to 90 nights – not bad for anyone wanting to to a longer tour of the US.

For anyone wishing to replicate the results I produced above, you’ll head to head over to the ITA Matrix search engine and proceed from there.

Remember, you can’t purchase tickets on ITA Matrix, you can only find the fares. But, once you’ve found something you think is worth booking, you should be able to replicate the itinerary on the airlines’ own websites or on sites like Expedia and Orbitz.

If you find any other good deals out there post them in the comment section of this post and share them with everyone else 🙂
