    Hi, I'm trying to find cheap flights to Europe from the United States.

    Problem is, I don't know what online pages to trust. Some show some impressive prices, but after reading reviews, they seem to have terrible customer support, and most customers report bad experiences.

    So, where have you found cheap tickets for Europe? Any recommendation?

    If you're a student or under 25 or whatever their cutoff is, I'd highly recommend studentuniverse.com.

    matrix.itasoftware.com

    You can't book tickets with the tools there, but they show which dates to enter on the carriers' websites.

    kayak.com

    and theres an app for kayak


    it aggregates all of the advertised flights on expedia, orbitz, priceline, whatever there is.


    *note
    US to European flight prices are wayyy up this summer. Its pretty insane. Last year, with the economy and all, they were dirt cheap, so its quite a shock to see the increases (upwards of 50% on many flights).

    there are of course different things you can do to get cheap flights (involves longer traveling times and stops..etc) but all-in-all..prices aren't cheap.

    I have almost always used Expedia or Opodo to book flights to anywhere (the states included). I don't live in the states though, mind you. They are always a lot cheaper than booking directly from a specific airline and usually have tons of offers.

    Thanks guys. I'm currently still looking and will be buying tomorrow maybe.

    So far the cheapest I have found is $680 from JFK to Barcelona. Pretty good deal I think.
