If you're easily wooed by incredibly low fares (and live on the East Coast), then skip straight to our instructions on how to book. But, if you need a little more convincing on why you should book this deal, here we go: $440 from New York usually gets you to Portland, or maybe Los Angeles. But thanks to Royal Air Maroc, Morocco's national carrier, that round-trip fare gets you a trip to Morocco and a European city of your choice. While the deal is only out of New York City, the two-for-one nature still makes it a value for travelers heading to the JFK airport from Boston, D.C., or Philadelphia.
Available from April to June and between September and October, the first part of the deal gives travelers the chance to explore Morocco. If we were you? We'd road trip across the northern part of the country, stop by Chefchaouen's dreamy blue medina, and shop in Fez. According to Thrifty Traveler, passengers can then head straight to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga, Valencia, Paris, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Lisbon, Porto, Bologna, London, Milan, Nice, or Rome. The deals are lowest (between $440 and $500) from New York City to Amsterdam, Porto, and Madrid, but are still a steal—less than a direct flight, but with a trip to Morocco thrown in—to the other European destinations.
Bonus? Because the multi-city flight returns to the U.S. directly from Europe, and not from Morocco, passengers will not be affected by the electronics ban.
How to book: This takes a few steps, so bear with us. First, go to Google Flights, limit your search to Royal Air Maroc flights, and enter your final European destination of choice (sample search). Use the calendar box to find three consecutive green fares, as those are the lowest. If you need your dates to be a little more flexible, you might have to pay around $550 or $600 round-trip, which is still a good deal. From there, take your three dates to a multi-city search: the first date will be the flight from New York to Casablanca, the second will be Casablanca to your European destination , and the third is that destination back to NYC (sample search). You can then connect through Google to buy the flight from Royal Air Maroc. The deal will likely last at least another day, but if you're interested, you can book and cancel within 24 hours, giving you a little extra time to think it through.
