Heading abroad before the holidays can be a good time to take a surprisingly cheap trip. Lots of airlines are offering affordable tickets that run in stark opposition to the painfully expensive fares you'll find around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Norwegian's Halloween flash sale is one such instance of an airline giving you a good reason to treat yourself right now.
The trips are departing from Oakland/San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boston, and Fort Lauderdale/Miami to a variety of locations in Europe. Each departure city just has a handful of destinations available for savvy travelers, but the deals are pretty good, even when it's not the cheapest flight on the board. That means, if you're willing to be flexible, you could have a very good weekend coming up in the not too distant future.
