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.
Norwegian is offering great deals on tickets from many of its US gateways to cities all over Europe. We’re seeing flights as cheap as $214 round-trip between Newburgh, NY (SWF) and Dublin (DUB). However, there are many more cheap flights available from cities all over the US, too.
Generally, these fares are available from October 2017 through February 2018, but since the low fares are so widespread, exact availability will depend on where you’re departing from and where you’re flying to.
To search for these low fares, we recommend using Google Flights and then book through Norwegian’s website for the lowest possible price. Some 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.
