Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available – View the current offers here
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 is offering some great deals on flights to Europe from smaller cities on the East Coast. You can fly from Providence (PVD), Hartford (BDL) or Newburgh (SWF) to a number of Norwegian's European destinations. We're seeing these low fares throughout much of the rest of the year and into March 2018. Some of the low fares require you to book separate tickets, with some requiring you to book on another version of Norwegian's website to get the lowest possible price.
To search for these low fares, we recommend using Google Flights. There, you can select the dates that best fit your needs. Then, it'll prompt you to book through Norwegian's website. If you need to book separate tickets, Google Flights will tell you which version of Norwegian's website to book through in order to get the lowest possible fare.
