Via Miles to Memories, you can get up to 20% off tickets to Europe with Norwegian Air’s St. Patrick’s Day fare sale!

I found a flight from Newburg, New York to Bergen, Norway departing September 21, 2017, and returning September 25, 2017, for ~$273.

The valid travel dates for these sale fares vary, depending on which European city you’re flying to.  For example, for tickets to Ireland and Scotland, you can get up to 20% off flights between April 18, 2017, and October 28, 2017. 

Norwegian Air Sale

Save Big on Your Trip Across the Pond With Norwegian’s St. Patrick’s Day Sale

Here are the details.  And how to search for deals from your city!

How to Book It

Link:   Norwegian Air’s St. Patrick’s Day Sale

You can check Miles to Memories for how to book.  And go to Norwegian Air’s promotion page to see the routes that qualify for the up to 20% off sale.

Then book directly on Norwegian Air’s website by March 19, 2017.  

That said, I doubt many of these super cheap fares will last that long!  So I’d suggest booking sooner rather than later. 😉

For flights to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Bergen, valid travel dates are between April 18, 2017, and October 28, 2017.

For flights to London, Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen, you can fly between April 18, 2017, and June 16, 2017.  Or between September 3, 2017, and October 28, 2017.

Norwegian Air Tips

Remember, Norwegian Air charges fees for extras, like checked bags and seat reservations.  So you’ll get the best deal if you can pack light.

Save up to ~20% on Your Flight

You can also take advantage of currency conversion rates to save even more on Norwegian Air tickets.  Even flights that are already on sale!

Read how to save up to 20% on Norwegian Air flights with an easy trick.

For the flight mentioned above, between New York and Bergen, Norway, the US site shows a price of ~$273, while Norway’s Norwegian Air site shows a price of ~$264.  So it could be worth comparing both versions of the site before you book!

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.
