Fly Europe!

  • CH-Aviation. Enter your origin and destination (cities or countries) and the site displays routes and the airlines that fly these routes. You locate airlines of interest on a different menu, with links to those lines' websites.

  • Flybudget. This site includes airlines around the world, with a major section on Europe. It uses an intriguing graphic interface: Once you enter routes and dates, you get a display of fare ranges by day; once you select a travel day, you get specific flight prices.

  • Flycheapo. Enter your origin and destination, select an airline that flies the route, and the site links you directly to that airline.

  • Skyscanner presents the same destination-date-fare information mix as Flybudget , but with a more conventional interface. In fact, Flybudget says it's "powered" by Skyscanner, so Flybudget may be just an independent front-end to the same data.

Overall, if you're really looking for the lowest airfares—and have flexibility about travel dates—the Flybudget/Skyscanner system is by far the most useful. However, if you're pretty much tied to specific dates, CH-Aviation and Flycheapo can help as easily.

Air passes

Consider a fixed-price visitor ticket program as yet another alternative for low-cost flights within Europe. Two programs provide for travel within Europe for a flat rate of $99 per nonstop flight:

  • Europe by Air provides flights on 23 airlines—mainly small—throughout much of Europe, as far east as Moscow. In addition, a few "premium" flights, generally in the eastern Mediterranean, cost $129 each.

  • Euroflightpass offers a similar $99 flat rate throughout Europe, again as far east as Moscow.

It's hard to tell from the websites whether Europe by Air and Euroflightpass overlap at all. They both use what seems to be identical interactive map technology, but the routes displayed are different.
