Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend 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 American Express Platinum Card, 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's offering cheap fares starting at just $257 round-trip from many of its US cities, including New York (JFK), Boston (BOS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Los Angeles (LAX) and Oakland (OAK), to Europe. Availability on all of the routes seems to fluctuate, but for most, we're seeing these fares available for at least a few days from September through early December 2017.

Remember that Norwegian is a low-cost carrier, meaning you might be charged for services and perks that you're used to getting for free. However, even with all the extra fees, you could be saving a ton of money with these cheap fares. And, Norwegian's Dreamliner is a comfortable way to get across the Atlantic — even in economy.

We're seeing these low fares when booking through the Norwegian version of the carrier's website. To see these fares, select "Norway" as your country when you go to Prices will be displayed in the Norwegian Krone and you might have to use a translator, but the savings could be worth the extra effort.

Airline: Norwegian
Cost: $257+ round-trip in economy
Dates: September - December 2017
Booking Link: Norwegian
Pay With: The Platinum Card from American Express (5x on airfare), Chase Sapphire Reserve, Citi Prestige (5x on airfare) or Chase Sapphire Preferred (2x on travel)
