I hear a lot “travel is so expensive!” And while yes, if you are just booking the first thing you see or not scheduling your trip according to dates you can travel cheaper, it can be. But here’s the thing, there are tons of locations and flights out there that you can get at relatively low prices. When we first started traveling abroad after we got married, Nick and I would just search Orbitz not really knowing anything about airfare or how to get deals. We always figured on planning about $1,000 per ticket to fly anywhere abroad from the US West Coast. But in all actuality, we rarely pay that anymore and many times we’re getting both tickets for not much more than that. There are lots of ways to save on travel, but good airfare is one of the biggest. So here today, I’ve found you 3 affordable Spring trips abroad (from the US) and I’m telling you what they cost! If you’re looking for a great Winter getaway with a lower price tag, I’ve got you covered!
All 3 trips below are to cities I have personally been to or have heard amazing things about, as I wouldn’t recommend them if they weren’t great deals and great locations!
Boston to Amsterdam (via Iceland) | $504/person roundtrip
5 April – 13 April
Book directly through Wow Air’s website.
Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in Europe and one we’ve visited multiple times, so how about the perfect Spring escape to the land of the Wooden Shoes and Tulip festivals? Spring is the perfect time to experience the beauty of Amsterdam and this deal makes it even better!

New York JFK to Stockholm | $473.70/person roundtrip
9 March – 16 March
Book directly through Norwegian Air’s website.
I haven’t yet had the pleasure of visiting Stockholm but the reviews I hear about it, it’s definitely at the top of my list for Scandinavia! And I’ve had great luck with Norwegian Air, so with this deal, a Spring trip to Stockholm sounds like the perfect thing, particularly at this price!
Seattle to Iceland | $685/person roundtrip
16 April – 22 April
Book directly through Iceland Air’s website.
Iceland is one of my absolute favorite places in the world and we fly Iceland Air often from the West Coast to Iceland or sometimes on to Europe. They are a solid airline and with prices like this, it’s your turn to head to the amazing country of Iceland! And Iceland in the Spring… gorgeous!
