UK or France or elsewhere, July 2018, good price from west coast?

Jump to last reply

For those of you who have travelled during summer, what would you consider a good roundtrip price for west coast to London or Paris? Or is there another European hub that would be inexpensive?

I want to fly out of SEA, but I would be willing to do LAX, Oakland, or SFO if it saved me money. I could fly out of NYC too- I have JetBlue credit that I could use to get there. I had planned to use it this winter, but if the price is right for a Europe summer trip, I can put it towards that.

Right now, Norwegian has some one way tickets for $199, but the return of course is much more expensive- roundtrip is 700. My trouble is that I'm not sure what a good price for July would be, or how far in advance I should look. Most calendars don't seem to go into July quite yet. Buy now or later?

I am not set on destination quite yet. I can't decide if I'd like to see more of France or the UK, or something entirely different, like Prague or Croatia. I know I don't want anywhere really hot, and right now I'm not excited about heavy crowds, so I think that might cross out Italy or Spain. I'm considering focusing on just one region/country because it may need to be 2-3 weeks at most.

So...off the wall suggestions are entirely welcome. Or feel free to pimp your favorite summer TR- I'm currently working my way through those! Food, history, archaeology, architecture, and the outdoors are some of my favorite things. I love museums, but I found last trip that I enjoy wandering through old towns and in and out of churches even more. Nothing involving a rental car- transit access is a must!

(In case you didn't follow my trip last winter, I have been to London, Paris, various cities in Germany, Florence, Venice, Rome- so I'm aware of travel basics. This is specifically more for July and other locations, and in hopes of getting more off the beaten path).
