If you’ve been dreaming of a trip to Europe, now might be your best opportunity to book flights.

According to The Points Guy, flights to France and Spain are seriously on sale right now, with prices under $300 round-trip from East Coast cities.

TAP Portugal, the country’s flag carrier, is the airline responsible for these affordable fares, though there are also cheap flights with Norwegian Air.

The best deal, for example, is a $290 round-trip ticket from Boston to Barcelona (via both TAP and Norwegian). And thanks to a layover in Lisbon, travelers can easily get a two-for-one trip to both Spain and Portugal.

Bostonians can also book flights to Madrid for comparable prices, and to Paris for $364 round-trip.

From New York City, there are flights to Barcelona available in February for a cool $353 round-trip — and to Paris for $417.

There are even deals from Miami to Barcelona.

To find the cheapest days to fly to Europe from your city, use Google Flights’ low-fare calendar. Generally, the best deals can be found between January and August 2018.

If your layover in Lisbon just isn’t enough time to explore the city, travelers should note that TAP Portugal will extend a free stopover for up to three nights at no additional cost.
