Little-known ways to fly to Italy and Germany

Discount airline Eurofly is worth considering for your next trip to Italy. Eurofly is a low-cost carrier based in Milan that provides nonstop service between New York City and Bologna, Bari, Catania, Lamezia Terme, Naples, Palermo, Pescara, and Rome. These cities make convenient jumping-off points, whether for exploring less-touristed regions like Apulia (fly into Bari) and Calabria (choose Lamezia Terme) or Italy's best-loved destinations. Bologna, for instance, grants easy access to Tuscany to the south and Venice to the north while Rome and Naples put the Amalfi Coast within a short drive. All flights are nonstop on Airbus 330-200 planes. Even if you plan to visit Italy this summer and don't live in the Big Apple, you may save by flying a U.S. discount carrier to New York City and then catching a non-stop flight on Eurofly. You can only find its fares at Eurofly.com--not through Web travel agencies, such as Orbitz, or meta-search websites, such as Kayak. As a fun side note, Eurofly is the official airline of the FC Inter and AC Milan soccer teams and the Ferrari racing team.--Kate Appleton

Discount airline Condor is worth considering for your next trip to Germany. For several years now and with almost no marketing, Condor Airlines has been flying from Anchorage, Las Vegas, Fort Myers, and Orlando to Frankfurt, Germany, with connecting flights to other cities. The airline is owned by Thomas Cook and uses Boeing 767-300, Boeing 757-300 and Airbus A320 aircraft. You won't find its fares at Web travel agencies, such as Orbitz, or meta-search websites, such as Kayak. Instead, you'll find Condor's fares at its website. If you're flying to Germany this summer, consider hopping a U.S. discount airline to Las Vegas (assuming you don't already live in Sin City), and then jumping on Condor, which flies to Frankfurt from Las Vegas four times a week.
