4 Cities in Europe in 1 Trip
Via Secret Flying, it’s possible to book a series of 1-way coach flights from New York to 4 European cities:
- Oslo, Norway
- London, UK
- Copenhagen, Denmark
- Stockholm, Sweden
The final price? ~$350 for a round-trip adventure!
I found a 1-way flight from New York to Oslo, Norway, for ~$143 in January on Norwegian Airlines!
And a flight from Stockholm, Sweden, back to New York for ~$162!
Fill-in the other cities with flights in Europe on Ryanair. I found a flight from Oslo to London for only ~$16!
Norwegian Airlines and Ryanair are both budget airlines based in Europe. Be aware of fees for checked baggage, carry-ons, and even to print your boarding pass!
Check the fees and run the numbers to make sure this is a good deal for you! If you can pack light, this is a fantastic deal!
These fares are valid for travel in January and February 2016.
