TAP Portugal $138 one way SFO to Rome Jan-May 2020

TAP Portugal has a deep discount fare at $138 one way for San Francisco to Rome via Lisbon. Round trip is a bit more at $329. This fare is currently available for departures about 4 days per week from January 20 to May 28. If you have 100 TP miles, the ticket price drops to $125 one way or $24 off a round trip ticket with 200 miles.

I received 200 TAP miles as a mileage program sign-up bonus last year. I also picked up 138 TAP miles with a hotel booking in Poland last summer.

For those who travel light with carry-on only, you can take advantage of the low one-way fare and simply stay in Lisbon for a ticket price quite a bit less than otherwise available from SFO.

TAP Portugal  San Francisco SFO – Lisbon LIS – Rome FCO – LIS (21 hr overnight layover) – SFO

$334.01 round trip (or $310.01 + 200 miles)  Sun Apr 26 – Sun May 10


TAP Portugal SFO – LIS – FCO Rome one way

$137.10 one way (or $125.10 + 100 miles)  Monday March 16

I like this last option for 22 hr 20 min layover in Lisbon as a really cheap two cities in one opportunity.

  1. Thats a great fare price but just a warning. I flew with them in Oct and they canceled a flight after waiting several hours at the gate (plane swap). I had to buy another airline to get me to my destination. They still havent refunded me for the unused flight or replacement ticket. They wont honor EC261/4000. Basically Im doing a charge back on them with my CC.. So just be aware of what kind of airline this is.

    Unfortunately that is the sign of times. In our Senate Moscow mitch wants to hold a trial without calling witnesses. Laws are for little people.

    Take the airline to court if they won’t follow EC261. I think there is a website that does it for cut off the compensation.
