United – $664: Boston – Athens, Greece. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good sale to Athens for Fall / Winter travel. This is an United K fare, so it is important to fly on the right carriers to ensure 100% mileage accrual — the routing and combinations that we are showing will ensure 100% mileage accrual. There is a ~$30 cheaper fare on Swiss — however, that is non-mileage earning with anyone. Essentially, by saving $30, you are giving up on almost a free one-ways domestic award ticket. Travel is a not a one-time event for most, if you want to continually travel for cheap, collect miles!

A similar fare is also available for about $50 more from Houston to Athens per Fare Deal Alert.
