A jaunt to Europe is often atop even the most experience travellers’ wish list of dream destinations.

But for many, the often-exorbitant air fares can price them out of taking such a lengthy trip.

Now a savvy offer by Emirates could see Aussie holidaymakers score return flights to Europe for as little as $700.

Passengers who partake in the sale can score flights to Dubai for $1,099, Portugal for $1,219, Spain for $1,279 and the United Kingdom for $1,319.

Add to this an extension of the brand’s Early Birds deals which can see Skywards members slash the already-low prices by a further $500—making the possible return fare a little more than $700.

Emirates’ bargain

Skywards is the airline’s frequent flyer program which is offering Cash+Miles which can see passengers saving up to $500 in exchange for miles on select flights.

According to Emirates, the sale applies to more than 50 European locations on flights between 1 February 2020 and 10 October 2020.

Bookings need to be made before 6 November 2019.

For those looking to break up the sometimes arduous long haul flights, the carrier is also offering a complimentary two-night stopover in Dubai’s opulence.

The deal is available for new bookings made between 2 October and 6 November 2019 inclusive, and cannot be claimed on existing bookings.

Economy Class travellers will be treated to a Deluxe Room at the Vida Emirates Hills or Vida Harbour Point, while Business and First Class passengers who book eligible fares will be offered a Deluxe Room at the Address Fountain View or Address Skyview.
