United: Fly To Europe For Just 48,000 Miles Round Trip Instead Of 60,000 Miles.

Update: Today is the final day for this promotion. Take advantage of the stopovers you can make as illustrated below and you can check out multiple cities for just 48K miles!

These are bookable now online on United.com.

You can view a list all of the cities that United serves in Europe on this Wikipedia link. Or view United’s route map here or United’s interactive route map here.

Although the rules say that stopovers are no permitted and that open jaws are only valid for airports in the same region like JFK and EWR I searched for a flight using “multiple destinations” from Los Angeles to NYC for a week and then Newark to Paris and Paris back to Los Angeles and it priced out at just 48,000 miles.

Or from Newark to Zurich for a week and then from London to Los Angeles and finally from LA back to JFK is 48,000 miles as well.

    Hi Dan,
    I know tat there has been discussion about this before, but if you we’re to have only one credit card, which one would you have and why? We’ve had different cards over the years.. ( Marriott, united…) now we have southwest, because we think this is the best one to earn free flights. ( we think that is the best ” perk” to having one of those cards) please give us your insight…

    Sorry for the beginner question, but How do you search for open jaw/extended layovers? Did you just do a multi-city search with multiple segments? Please share any helpful info and how you entered it in to the search boxes. Thx

    @dokn:
    You can try using Avios to get from Europe to Israel with this, sure.

    @Savtie:
    Probably Starwood.

    @Bentch:
    I entered it exactly as you see it as 3 separate legs using multiple destinations.
