Air Canada, along with a few other Star Alliance airlines (including SWISS International Air Lines and Lufthansa), are putting Europe on sale and one of the best deals active right now is SFO to Rome, Italty. Flights start at $258 round-trip, after taxes with open availability (note that the lowest prices are for travel in February and March 2019, but great deals can be found through May 2019.
Also, this deal is for new, “basic” economy type fares, where you’ll have to pay to check luggage (even if you have Star Alliance Gold or above status) and you can’t select a seat without paying. You do, however, collect full Premier Qualifying Miles from United (I booked this trip and will be accruing 13,016 miles).
There are similarly low fares across the country to Europe right now from a ton of different airports (including EWR, LAX, and Houston and flying to Paris, Milan, and London).
The best way to book is through Skyscanner, or you can support my blog by booking via the below link!

There’s an awesome deal from San Francisco to Rome, Italy right now on United that you can’t find on Google Flights or related travel searches. Some itineraries are both United and other Star Alliances members, such as Brussels Airlines, Swiss Air, Air Canada, and Lufthansa.
The flights are very limited, with departure dates of either March 12th or March 13th, and returning either March 20th, 21st, 23rd, or 26th.
You can find the flights through momondo search engine (I’ve linked to a March 13-26 itinerary where you can find the $332 price).
I’ve booked a number of amazing flight deals this way, but note that you’ll have to book with a separate travel agency, which can add a layer of complication if you need to change your travel reservations. That said, this ticket price is hard to beat!
