TAP Portugal is back with cheap one-way fares to Europe, this time for autumn and winter travel. All of their US origination points are included except Los Angeles, and included with the expected Spanish destinations (more on these later) this time are Paris and Rome. Discounted fares are pretty widely available including a lot of weekends and around Thanksgiving, but Christmas and New Year’s are excluded. If you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can use Ultimate Rewards points @ 1.5 cents each in the Chase travel portal, meaning many of these are better deals than most domestic awards flights.

  • New York to Paris from $126 (8.4K UR), Rome from $136
  • Miami to Paris from $157Rome from $214
  • Boston to Paris from $178, Rome from $184
  • Chicago to Paris from $196Rome from $204
  • San Francisco to Paris from $280Rome from $233

These are TAP’s basic economy fares, which includes a carry-on (and meals). What’s maybe best about TAP’s fares is that select flights include free stopovers of up to 5 days in Lisbon or Porto, meaning these can lead to “2 in 1” trips. I found stopovers on fares as low as $150, though not on the absolute cheapest deals. Additionally, these fares could be useful for positioning fights for current business class fare round trips from Paris and Rome back to North America via Canada. You could just take the return flight, or use this to set up two trips to Europe each with a single leg in business class.
