What are the cheapest cities to fly to in Western Europe?
Great question, Matt!
The best deals can be different depending if you’re redeeming miles & points or booking paid airfare.
For example, one great option to Europe is using British Airways Avios points for flights to Dublin, Dusseldorf, or Berlin.
Or for inexpensive paid airfare, you can consider flights on low-cost airlines like Norwegian Air and WOW Air to destinations like Iceland, London, Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen.

Every month I make a post with what I consider to be the best credit card sign-up bonuses of the month.
While there are several excellent long standing credit card offers, the specifics of the best offers are constantly changing (be it the annual fee, minimum spend requirement, or even amount of the sign-up bonus).
If you read my blog on a daily basis then by all means skip this post, but for me it’s a useful, “current” place to refer people who ask about which cards they should sign-up for, a question I get on a daily basis.
We’ve seen some great sign-up bonuses over the past few months, including some great bonuses being discontinued, and also some great new bonuses being introduced.
