European Summer Bargains from Boston

Start counting your blessings and your beans, Beantown! Iberia is having an unadvertised summer sale with great deals from Boston to Europe that should have the whole Northeast jumping for joy and getting out the vacation planner. While not quite as spectacular as the all too brief Air France sale earlier in the week, the savings here are solid and should be easier to cash in.

Prices start at $650 for non-stop flights to Madrid, but almost all destinations are included at up to half off otherwise high summer fares, with all of Italy and most of Western Europe within reach for less than $700 and the rest going for up to $150 more, even places as far-flung as Istanbul, Moscow, Cairo and Tel Aviv, all for around $780. Availability is very limited, but in most cases we found seats for mid-to-late July departures with mid-to-late August returns, and other scenarios may be possible.
