Air Transatjust dropped the price of their late July to early August flights from Toronto to Europe down to as cheap as $353 roundtrip including taxes.
I can't even remember the last time Air Transat had prices anywhere close to this to Europe, never-mind during the peak season of summer! it's been a *long* time! (years?)
Here's how to find and book them, using an example from Toronto to Glasgow, Scotland. See below for other cities in Europe you can try.
Update: 1:36 PM EST - Looks like we broke Air Transat's site. This is what happens when you search for any flight...
For the time being, Air Transat's flight search tool appears to be dead, making these fares unbookable online. It remains to be seen what will happen when it's back up and running. Perhaps these prices were a mistake?
1. Go to Air Transat's website
2. In the flight search, search for a flight ...

Other cities in Europe that are cheap around the same dates
(roundtrip, including all taxes)
Amsterdam, Netherlands $353
Paris, France $473
Rome, Italy $494
Some other cities in Europe served by Air Transat look to be in the $500s, which is also significantly cheaper than usual for summer travel to Europe, just not quite to the insane degree of a roundtrip flight in the $300s!
