If you’ve been waiting for cheap flights across the pond, now is the time to search!
I’m seeing great deals from a number of US cities to Europe. For example, there are lots of cheap flights on Norwegian Air, like from New York to London for ~$359 round-trip in coach.
Or you can fly to Paris from Los Angeles for ~$377 round-trip in coach.
Folks in Seattle can fly all the way to London for less than $450!
And anyone living in or near Oakland can take advantage of these cheap fares, too. Like this flight I found to Barcelona for only ~$314 round-trip!
Norwegian Air is a low-cost airline, so you’ll have to pay extra for things like seat selection, carry-on baggage, etc.
But, you should check for similar sales to Oslo, Copenhagen, and Stockholm, as well!
Even if you don’t find a cheap route to your desired city, you can still buy a cheap ticket to get to Europe, and hop to your favorite city with European budget airlines.
I even found a few discounted tickets on American Airlines. Like this one from New York to Madrid for ~$494!
The fastest way to find these flights is by using Google Flights. You can see my posts for how to use Google Flights and ITA Matrix to find sale dates. Then book directly on the airline website, or through a site like Orbitz, Expedia, etc.
If you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz, Expedia, or Priceline you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket. Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!
American Airlines Tips
You can hold a reservation on American Airlines for up to 24 hours and cancel without penalty if you change your mind.
Nowegian 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 take advantage of currency conversion rates to save even more on Norwegian Air tickets. Even flights that are already on sale!

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.
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.
