Tauck is again offering its Take Off with Tauck special air pricing on Economy, Premium Economy and Business airfares to Europe. Tauck says the program, which runs from now through February 28, 2017, simplifies airfares to Europe by offering a hassle-free, three-tiered pricing model with no taxes, hidden fees or surcharges.

Fully-inclusive Take Off with Tauck prices are $890 per person for Economy Class, $1,490 per person for Premium Economy Class and $3,490 per person for Business Class. Take Off with Tauck airfares are available when booking Tauck’s European land trips, river cruises, Tauck Bridges tours and Culturious journeys departing between March 1 and August 31. One of Tauck’s small ship ocean cruises, its 10-day “Venice & the Dalmatian Coast” itinerary, is also eligible for Take Off with Tauck airfares.

The airfares are good but not great. Using the strategies I use, you can fly roundtrip business class between North America and Europe for about $2,o00. How so? You’ll have to stay tuned to River Cruise Advisor. The first week of February, I’ll be publishing a post on how to fly business class for cheap.

However, Tauck’s fares earn mileage (mine do not) and are fully refundable (mine are also but are subject to $50 fees).

Tauck Off with Tauck pricing is available to guests departing through U.S. and Canadian air gateways and is valid on new bookings only. Fares are fully refundable, with only a deposit required at time of booking. Flights are subject to availability, and other restrictions apply.

Tauck has a wonderful river cruise product, all-inclusive even to the degree of giving you cash for lunch off the ship and change for the public toilets in Europe. I was blown away. Its on-board offering and tours are first-rate. I sailed on the ms Savor in the spring of 2015.
