There is currently an airfare deal from SFO to Copenhagen starting at $387 with Star Alliance airlines. Denmark is an expensive country, but taking advantage of cheap airfare and using points for hotels could be a great recipe for a fun getaway.

Dates: January through early April 2019, with a couple select dates in November and December 2018

Duration: Unlike many tickets that require a stay of at least a week, fares are available over a weekend.

How to book: Tickets are available through United and sometimes OTAs.

Use Google flights to search and you’ll be presented with booking options. Here is one sample trip.

These Star Alliance fares are close to the fares offered by low cost carrier Iceland Air (SEE: Icelandair Chicago / ORD to Reykjavik / KEF economy flight review).Most itineraries are on Star Alliance partners Air Canada, Lufthansa and SWISS. The tickets appear to be basic economy, although they do earn miles. Most itineraries will earn you over 12,000 Premier qualifying miles if credited to United.
