    Below are the fare rules for a flight to LHR via Dublin. I know I can do a stopover in Dublin but can these rules help me get to a stopover in Berlin??? I am so confused!!!!

    A sabbatical break will have us in Dublin, London and on the continent (including Berlin) and I am trying to navigate the best fares as travel will be in June.

    Thanks

    A transfer on an international flight is a stop up to 24 hours and it looks like you can have up to 3 of those in Europe in each direction on this fare.

    You also need to know the routing rules. They can be more restrictive than the fare rules and prevent things like the stopovers from being valid.

    Also, if Dublin is your destination then it is not a stopover point.

    Build your trip on a multi-city basis. You can find all the permissible stops in that way
