Getting home to the U.S. from Europe can be pretty daunting especially during the busy summer Holiday season. So I’ve compiled a comprehensive Guide on how to make it home from Europe by looking at the airlines serving the U.S. from the different European airports.

You may have to be quite creative and sometimes you may have to buy a ticket if your airline don’t have an agreement. If you decide to buy a ticket, start at https://www.google.com/flights and then book directly with the airline to avoid any issues.

WestJet (WS) has a lot of flights from Europe now especially to the closer countries like Ireland and the United Kingdom. Lots of flights get to Halifax, NS (YHZ). From there you can take WestJet again onwards, Air Canada (AC) or Air Transat.

I always think that at least you’re on the North American side of the Atlantic which is much closer than waiting 24 hours for the next flight and then finding out you did not make it. I also have a rule that I don’t second guess my decision and I never go back and look to see if I would have gotten on the flight. I suggest you do the same.

This post will also look at how to get between the airports in Europe themselves so you can make that connection back to the U.S. The Airport Schedules page is very useful for this task.

Note that some of these flights are not daily and you have to ensure you have an agreement with the airlines in order to fly space available. Also, depending on the agreement, you’ll have to get a ticket before you leave the U.S. So plan ahead for alternate routings.

Use the flight schedule program to the right of this post to help you with routings.

Visa Information

As a U.S. citizen, no visa is required for most of the countries in Europe. Just ensure that you have a passport that is valid for at least 6 months and has at least two blank pages. The U.S. State Department has excellent information.

Citizens of other countries should check with their consulates for visa and health requirements. Use this link to check visa requirements.

Hotels

Most of the airports will have hotels available either at the airport itself or close by. Europe is a little different as you may have to pay a special fee for the hotel shuttle. be sure to ask about that before making a booking. It’s usually listed on the hotel’s Web site. Also, check the shuttle hours as well.

Transportation

Europe is quite good about getting around especially from airport to airport. You can take:

A low cost carrier

There are many within Europe. Note that last minute fares on these carriers are usually the same as on the full service ones. Check with your airline to see if you have pass travel benefits. You may have to buy the passes before you leave your home town.

The train

Each country has its own type of train service. They usually have service to the trains stations in other cities as well as the city center.

A bus

Lots of bus services in Europe. I like Flix Bus as they have Wifi, go a lot of places and are quite comfortable.

Bla Bla Car

this is a ride sharing service

Shared Ride

Use the App on your phone for these shared ride services.
