Via View From the Wing, you can fly from 3 East Coast airports to Dublin, Shannon, Belfast, and Edinburgh in coach for $65 one-way.  And you can even get a pretty cheap return flight!

I found flights from New York (Newburgh-Stewart) to Edinburgh, Scotland, for $161 round-trip in coach for travel on November 13, 2017, to November 21, 2017.  These fares are valid for select dates between June 15, 2017, and December 31, 2017.

Norwegian is selling incredibly cheap tickets from the East Coast to Ireland and the UK on select dates between June 15, 2017, and December 31, 2017!  Participating airports are:

  • New York (Stewart-Newburgh Airport) to Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh, and Shannon
  • Connecticut (Hartford International) to Edinburgh
  • Providence to Cork, Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh, and Shannon

Stewart Newburgh Airport is NOT an airport we see very often (it’s ~1.5 hours north of New York City).  But I experimented a bit, and it doesn’t seem much more expensive to fly to than other New York airports.  So if you need to fly to New York to catch your Norwegian flight, it shouldn’t cost much extra to fly there.

You can find one-way coach flights from these US airports to Europe for just $65.  And if you look hard enough, you can find a round-trip flight for ~$150!  That is an incredible price.  But Norwegian Air is a budget airline, so they’ll charge you extra for almost everything.

For example, if you want to choose your seat beforehand, you could pay up to $45 per person, each way.  Non-alcoholic drinks will cost up to $3 per drink.  And international checked baggage can cost $65 per bag.

So if you can’t travel light, you might end up paying MUCH more than you think.

You can check View From the Wing for how to book.  Then book directly on the Norwegian’s website.

Hotel Information

If you book a sale flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.

Check out my favorite Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and Starwood hotels in Europe!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I use Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.  

Note:  If you prefer to book paid stays, check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized!).

Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.  Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.

One response to “Unbelievable Sale: East Coast to Ireland and Scotland for $65 One-Way (~$150 Round Trip!)

  1. These vast majority of the low fares were gone within no time and that was nearly 3 hours ago. By the time I went through to book the flights from NY to Dublin I got to the very end and it said the fare was no longer available. I think they had 2-4 seats at most per flight and nearly all of the seats for the summer months were gone in no time. I did end up finding some from Rhode Island to Belfast instead of NY to Dublin in September but that was within a 10 minutes of being release. At this point I don’t think there is anything left for the cheap flights in both directions. That being said under $150 across the pond and back is insane and even with a little nickle and diming by Norwegian this was an amazing deal if you happened to get in on it.
