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 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.

Fly from all over the US to several European cities with tickets starting at just $261 round-trip on Norwegian. Most of these deals are valid for departures from October 2017 through March 2018, but exact availability will depend on which specific route you’re flying. Many of the low-cost carrier’s US gateways are included in this sale, including Boston (BOS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (EWR and JFK) and Oakland (OAK).

Norwegian's economy product is fairly comfy on the 787.

To search for these low fares, we recommend using Google Flights and then book through Norwegian’s website for the lowest price. Some may require you to book separate tickets on different versions of the carrier’s website, but Google Flights will indicate when that is necessary as it’s not in all cases.
