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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the 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.
Low-cost carrier Norwegian has announced an end of summer sale that can get you to Europe on the cheap. You can fly from all over the US to destinations in Europe like Edinburgh (EDI), Paris (CDG/ORY), Dublin (DUB), Barcelona (BCN), Rome (FCO) and more for as little $89 one-way or $242 round-trip.
On many routes, cheap flights are available almost every day of the week, like in this example for flights from New York Stewart (SWF) to Edinburgh:
Remember that Norwegian is a budget airline, so checked bags and seat assignments will cost extra. However, this isn't specific to just them — mainline carriers have been rolling out basic economy fares on transatlantic routes.
To find the discounted routes, head over the Norwegian sale page and select your departure region — from there you'll find which European destinations are on sale. You'll need to book by September 5 for the cheap flights that are available between October 31, 2018 and March 31, 2019.
