hi, me and my friends are planning out senior year trip to Europe for next June when we graduate.

Were somewhat undecided on where and in what order were going, but figure we can at least get a plane flight booked in order to give us a starting off point to base the rest of our trip off of.

I live in San Francisco, California and im under the impression the cheapest flight would be from there to Heathrow. Is this true? If not, what is? Also what the best bang for the buck airlines, or the best deal, etc. We are hoping to go from about June 20th to July 11 or so.

Any tips...info...thanks

yes u are right! London is the cheapest hub to fly to from the US.
And with its extensive network of budget airlines - its the best place to reach anywhere on the continent as well.

hav fun!

Don´t miss out Spain! Excellent range of low cost flights from London Airports (Gatwick, Stanstead, Luton) to all areas of Spanish mainland and Balearic Islands.

How about going to Scandinavia?
Start in Copenhagen with a cold beer at an outdoor café (almost always sunny that time of year), and end up hiking in the mountains in Norway... beautiful if I may say so myself.
Of course you were probably thinking of continental Europe, (I love Rome) but there`s lots to see up north and to the east as well :)

Hi there,

I'd recommend going to Berlin. It's my fave place, and there is lots to do. My fave hostel is a and o hostel on Zoological garden, where I have stayed 3 times. It is cheap, clean and very well positioned for transport and for shopping.

Berlin isn't that expensive if you know what to do. If you want more advice, private message me - I know my way round a fair bit.

Thanks
