Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Norwegian Air just announced its latest new routes from the US to Bergen, Norway (BGO). And with the announcement of these two new routes, the carrier is offering fares from $89 one-way from both Newburgh (SWF) and Providence (PVD), though the cheapest round-trip fares we found were NOK 1,546 ($183) from PVD when booking through the Norwegian version of the website.
While the US version was showing the round-trip cost at $195, the Norwegian site was showing $183 — a $12 or 6% savings. To search this way, go to Norwegian.com and click "Norway" as your preferred country of origin. Although you might not be searching in English, you can copy and paste the text into a translator and book that way to save a couple of extra dollars.
