With June around the corner, you likely have summer on the brain, but now is actually the ideal time to start thinking about your fall travel plans. GOBankingRates has teamed up with Slickdeals.net to uncover eight unreal flight deals to jump start your wanderlust. Not sure where to take off to this autumn? These airfare bargains are sure to inspire — and will help pad your last-minute travel fund.
Select US Cities to Copenhagen, Denmark
If you're able to get yourself to Charlotte, Detroit, Dallas or Atlanta, you can take advantage of some great deals on Air Canada via Priceline or Orbitz. Land round-trip airfare to Copenhagen with one stopover for as little as $389; departure dates kick off in late October. This ultra-hip city is home to some of Denmark's top attractions, including the famous Tivoli Gardens amusement park. On foot is perhaps the best way to explore the Danish capital, just don't leave without wandering into a few breweries — Copenhagen is a leader in the European craft beer scene.
Depart (CLT) (DTW) (DFW) (ATL): Oct. 24 through Dec. 5
Return (CLT) (DTW) (DFW) (ATL): Nov. 1 through Dec. 13
Price: From $389

Atlanta to Oslo, Norway
Zip off on a Norwegian adventure this fall with a little help from Priceline — we came across a handful of solid deals through Lufthansa, Scandinavian, United and Brussels Airlines. You can snag round-trip tickets out of Atlanta for under $500 if you're flexible with your travel dates; the best deals are for Tuesday and Wednesday departures and require making two stops. That said, the price is on point. Oslo is where it's at for adventure travelers on the hunt for epic hiking trails and outdoor fun. Runners rejoice: October 5 also marks the Oslo Marathon.
Departs (ATL): Sept. 5 through Oct. 22
Returns (ATL): Minimum 7-day stay
Price: From $460
Washington, D.C. to Paris, France
This one caught our attention because it's actually two vacations in one — Icelandair allows you to stopover in Reykjavik for up to seven days. And with round-trip airfare coming in at just $482 via Expedia, the price is tough to beat. Another perk? Icelandair lets you check in one bag for free. You can save more money by staying in a hostel; average nightly rates are just $45 in the City of Lights. Both Reykjavik and Paris are lovely in the fall. And since peak summer travel will be behind you, you're more likely to find cheaper hotel rates and thinner crowds.
Departs (IAD): Sept. 24-29
Returns (IAD): Sept. 30; Oct. 1-2, 4-13, 17-19
Price: From $482
New York City Area to Barcelona, Spain
Barcelona attracts tourists of all kinds with its heavenly beaches and distinct architecture — the work of visionary architect Antoni Gaudí has come to visually define the city. We have him to thank for the Catalan capital's most stunning landmark, La Sagrada Familia. Barcelona is also know for extraordinary food, breathtaking views and so much more. Visit this fall by booking nonstop with Norwegian Air, but take note — this deal requires booking two separate one-way tickets.
Sample Travel Dates (ERW): Oct. 23 to Nov. 1
Price: From $362
Las Vegas to Nice, France
This deal, thanks to Orbitz, can theoretically be broken down into three different travel experiences. First kick things off on the glitzy Vegas strip, then head to London. Available on either Virgin Atlantic or British Airways, this deal features stopovers of up to 12 hours, so you could skip out of the airport for a pint and a bite in London before jetting off to France. The final stop in Nice is about as heavenly as it gets — a mix of city glam and beachy bliss, all rolled into one.
Departs (LAS): Nov. 1, 8, 12, 15, 22
Returns (LAS): Nov. 5, 7, 12, 14, 15, 21, 22, 26, 28, 29
Price: From $524
Going Abroad? 15 Smart Ways to Travel With Money
San Francisco to Hanoi, Vietnam
Get to know the Vietnamese capital with a whirlwind trip out of San Francisco. This Expedia deal via China Airlines, making one stop in Taipei, Taiwan, comes in at just under $550. FYI, you'll need a visa to enter Vietnam, but it's probably worth it — Hanoi is a hidden gem in Southeast Asia that's rumored to have some of the best local cuisine around. (Insiders recommend ordering the pho.) Hanoi is also a good jumping-off point for venturing south to Hue.
Departs (SFO): Aug. 28-31; Sept. 6, 7, 11, 12, 14, 19-21, 25-28; Oct. 2-5, 9-12, 16, 18-19, 23-26, 30-31; Nov. 1, 6-9, 13-16, 20-23
Return (SFO): Seven to 21 days after departure date, wide availability through Nov. 30.
Price: From $548
Providence to Dublin, Ireland
This standout deal is easily one of the best on the list, offering up nonstop service from Providence, R.I. to Dublin on Norwegian Air for less than $250. Another advantage is that your travel dates come in just before the winter season really takes hold. If it's a city experience you're craving, you'd be wise to add the Irish capital to your travel itinerary.
Dublin is celebrated for its bustling energy, vibrant nightlife and warm locals. In fact, you can even register for Dublin's free City of a Thousand Welcomes program, which will set you up with a tour guide at no cost. A tasting at the Guinness Storehouse is also probably in order.
Depart (PVD): Wide availability end of August through October.
Return (PVD): Wide availability through Nov. 3.
Price: From $245
Los Angeles to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Similar to Hanoi, you'll need a visa for this trip. It's a small hurdle to clear, though; Ho Chi Minh City — known simply as HCMC to in-the-know travelers — shows off the country's urban side. Fast-paced and overflowing with frenetic energy, this bit of Vietnamese wonder attracts visitors with its unmatched food stands. Get there from Los Angeles on China Airlines via Expedia for less than $550.
Departs (LAX): Aug. 28-30; Every Monday through Thursday in Sept. and Oct.; Nov. 1-2, 7-8, 14-16.
Return (LAX): Seven to 21 days after departure date, wide availability.
Price: From $544
