If you are looking to go to Europe over the next four months, this promotion is for you! United is offering up to 50% off award tickets to Europe for travel between January 13, 2019, and March 28, 2019. While this is a one-day sale, you can always book now and you’ll have until tomorrow night to cancel if you need to figure out some other plans that go along with your trip.
With this sale, United Chase cardholders will receive up to 50% off and non-cardholders up to 40% off. The discount also then depends on your status with United — regular member vs. Premier Silver/Gold vs. Premier Platinum/1K. The higher status you have, the better the discount! But still, non-cardholder, non-status members can still get 20% off which is still great!
While the Winter is by no means my favorite time to jet off to Europe, hotels are cheaper and the cities are not nearly as crowded. It is also one of the more favorable times to find an inexpensive paid ticket, so if you are looking to jet off to Europe this Winter make sure to look at paid fares as well to see if using points, even with the discount is in fact worth it.
