Top tips for finding a cheap flight to Copenhagen (CPH)

Book in the Goldilocks Window

There’s no magic calculation to determine which exact day will have the best airfare price, but there is a time period when prices are cheaper. We call it the Goldilocks Window––not too soon before a flight but not too last-minute either. For domestic flights, that means booking 1–3 months before a trip. For international trips, you need to start looking a bit earlier, about 2–8 months before a trip.

If you’re booking a flight during peak travel season or have specific travel dates and no wiggle room, it’s best to start looking on the earlier side. If you want to visit Copenhagen in July, for example, you should start looking for fares in January. Last-minute deals are extremely rare during busy travel seasons, with fare jumps happening 21, 14, and 7 days ahead of departure dates, so don’t put off booking.

Use the Greek Islands Trick

Even if you’re watching fares like a hawk, some flight prices never seem to drop. Before you give up on a summer trip to Copenhagen, try our beloved Greek Islands Trick.

If you want to fly from Los Angeles to Copenhagen for a summer holiday, you could be looking at a price tag of $1,000 or more. Instead, check out fares to London, Berlin, Stockholm, or another city in Europe. If you find a fare for $600–$700, you can then look for a budget airline flight or a train ticket to Copenhagen. It’s a bit more work on the frontend, but you could save yourself some cash to use on another night or two at a hotel.

Search alternative departure airports

This is like the Greek Islands Trick but on the departure side. Say you live in Philadelphia and flights to Copenhagen are out of your price range. Look for fares from New York or Boston instead. If they’re significantly cheaper, it could be worth the drive or train ride to get there for the transatlantic leg of your journey.

Sometimes, it’s even worth flying to a different departure airport. If you live in Denver but see a deal for $350 from Chicago to Copenhagen, check out fares from Denver to Chicago. If they’re cheap enough, it may just be worth the extra step. We see great deals from airports all over the country, so even travelers near large airports can save by playing around with departure cities.

Fly when it’s cheaper

Summer is one of the busiest travel seasons in Europe for good reason. Not only are kids on summer break, but warm temperatures make for lots of happy vacationers. Plus, in Denmark, people can take advantage of extra hours of sunlight. However, an abundance of people wanting to travel during a few nice months means airlines can charge more for tickets.

The more flexible you can be with your travel dates, the more likely you are to find a deal. Shoulder seasons are travel favorites. The months just before and after high season still have good weather, but they don’t have the crowds or expensive prices of high season. Shoulder seasons in Copenhagen are April–May and September–early October. The cheapest time to travel to Copenhagen is during the winter, a great time to save if you don’t mind short, sometimes gray days.

No matter what time of year you travel, try to fly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Those are generally the cheapest days to fly, while Fridays and Sundays are the most expensive.

Set alerts for specific trips

Keeping track of constantly changing airfare and determining when to book can be complicated. Luckily, technology can take the work off your hands.

Set up fare alerts for your travel dates, and you’ll get an email when fares drop into your price range or by a noteworthy amount. We recommend doing this ahead of the Goldilocks Window we talked about before so you can see fares drop during that time. If your travel dates are flexible, be sure to set a few alerts.

Copenhagen is home to the largest airport in Scandinavia and is well connected to the rest of Europe. US visitors from New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco can reach Copenhagen on a nonstop flight. From elsewhere in the country, you’ll have a layover, likely in Chicago, New York, or somewhere in Europe.

When is high season in Copenhagen?

When is the best time to visit Copenhagen?

High season, from June–August, is a great time to visit. Days are long, the weather is warm and sunny, and the city comes alive with outdoor markets, festivals, and beaches.

The best time to save money is from October–November and January–April. That said, the weather can be cold, rainy, and gray (with very short days in the winter).
