Top tips for finding a cheap flight to Berlin (BER)

Book in the Goldilocks Window

While there is no one day of the week when flight prices suddenly drop, there is a time period when flights tend to be cheaper. This period is not too far away from your trip but not too close either. We call it the Goldilocks Window, and it falls 1–3 months before a domestic trip and 2–8 months before an international trip.

If you’re planning to travel during peak season, it’s best to look on the earlier side. For example, if you plan to visit Berlin in July, you should start looking for flights in November the year prior. Last-minute deals are few and far between during busy seasons, with fare jumps happening 21, 14, and 7 days before departure dates. It’s best to not delay and book before those points if at all possible.

Use the Greek Islands Trick

Over the years, we’ve come up with a trick to reach the expensive Greek islands, but the good news is that it can be used all over Europe. The point of the Greek Islands Trick is to get as close to your final destination for the cheapest price possible, then find a cheap budget airline flight or other mode of transit for the last leg.

If you really want to fly from Atlanta to Berlin in July, you may be looking at a price tag of $800 or more. Instead, check out fares to Munich, London, Paris, or any other European city. Once you find a great deal, look for flights or train tickets from that city to Berlin. It involves a little more work, but it can save you a ton of money. And if you take the train, you could see more sights during your trip.

Search alternative departure airports

This is like the Greek Islands Trick but for departures. Again, let’s say you want to fly from Atlanta to Berlin, but prices are crazy expensive. Most people living near Atlanta likely don’t think to look for flights from other airports. Why would they when the world’s busiest airport is right there? Remember: We see amazing deals from airports all over the country, and even Atlanta residents can benefit from looking elsewhere.

For example, New York and Miami offer direct flights to Berlin. If you see a cheap fare from one of those airports, it could be worth looking for a $150 flight from Atlanta to New York.

Fly when it’s cheaper

The cheapest time to visit Berlin is during the winter, when it can be dark and cold. However, there are tons of indoor things to do in Berlin, and if you don’t mind cold weather, this can be a great time to visit to save money.

We love traveling during shoulder seasons, the periods tucked on either side of a destination’s busy season. That’s April to early June and mid-September through October in Berlin. You’ll still get nice weather, plus prices are cheaper and there aren’t as many tourists.

If you do plan to travel during the summer, be sure to look at fares on what are generally the cheapest days to fly: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. No surprise, Fridays and Sundays are consistently the most expensive days to fly.

Set alerts for specific trips

You don’t have to tell us twice that searching for airfare as it changes is hard work. The good news is that there are easy ways for technology to do it for you.

Set up fare alerts for your travel dates, creating multiple alerts if your dates or airports are flexible. Do this well in advance of the Goldilocks Window we talked about before so you can see prices fall during that time.

Berlin is well connected to Europe and North Africa. Visitors from the rest of the world, with the exception of New York and Miami, will have to make at least one connection.
