Info about European Youth Airfares?

by /bio/travel-rob »

I used to enjoy the old Youth Fares ,where young people under 25 could buy a fare  3 days prior to departure for a bargain.And also could make the return ticket up to a year out.Now while that is mainly gone from the U.S,.it still exists in Europe. PHeymont informed me  that Air Trans stopped their program here. 

Does anybody have first hand knowledge of SAS and other Airlines in Europe that still offer the Youth Fare.Is it as good deal?


Thanks.for the help.

So far as I know (and I may be wrong, but I doubt it), those types of fares no longer exist. I'm hoping someone will chime in to tell me I'm mistaken.

Hi Pauiline,

i've read a little about the SAS and others Youth fares.I'm just curious if those are really good deals like they used to be. Here is what SAS advertises on their site As far as I know the offer is not good for flights to the USA..

Hey! It is like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some images to drive the content home a bit, besides that, this is great forum post. A good read. I will definitely revisit again.
