In the recent excitement over the ultra-cheap WOW flights from Gatwick to the US, beginning in early 2015, it’s easy to forget that there are currently budget airline options from the UK to the US available – jet2.com and Norwegian.
With WOW flights getting everyone frantically searching for cheap US-Europe fares, I thought it was worth a reminder that Norwegian is now fully operational, and jet2.com begins flying to the US on Thursday 30 October, in two days time. You can get a flight from the UK to New York (Newark) this week, for example, at £328 all-in return with Jet2.com.
Plus, for those of you to whom the budget airlines do not appeal, we’ve got details of a great value Business Class fare to the US with British Airways. You just have to be a little bit creative.
Icelandic uber-budget airline, the appallingly named WOW Air, has just launched flights to the US at, in some cases, staggeringly low prices.
While a handful of other dates are available at this price, there is (currently) wide availability of:
- the GBP £99 fare from London Gatwick to Boston in March and April 2015; and
- the US $99 fare from Boston to London Gatwick in September and October 2015
(In both cases via Reykjavik, Iceland.)
Between 25 September and 24 October 2014, LOT Polish airlines is operating the Boeing 787 Dreamliner between London and Warsaw, on Thursdays and Fridays.
There is also a special offer on the route. Flights from London Heathrow to Warsaw between 25 September and 24 October start at a very reasonable £128, and the cheapest Dreamliner flight we found was £149.98 (out 10 October, returning 16 October). (more…)
Premier Inn is by far our favourite UK budget hotel, and it is currently on sale until Sunday 7 September 2014. Rooms across the UK start at just £25, with London prices starting at £39). Availability of the £25/£39 rate at the time of writing is huge.
Premier Inn really does offer everything you need for a quality night’s sleep, and on the many occasions we have used it, we have yet to be let down (if you are, they have a Good Night Guarantee (“if you don’t find everything you need in our spacious, quality rooms, we’ll give you your money back. No question or quibbles about it“)).
The key terms are as follows:
- Book by midnight (UK time) Sunday 7 September
- Stay Sunday 2 November – Sunday 8 February 2015.
If you can bag a room at £25 (and if you move fast, there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t be able to) then you’ve got yourself a genuine bargain here.
UK-based European low cost carrier Jet2.com is offering 20% off all flights booked by the end of 19 August 2014.
Notably, Jet2.com will fly between New York (Newark) and the UK (Manchester, Leeds Bradford, East Midlands, Glasgow and Newcastle) from October 2014. These flights are therefore included in the 20% off sale, and return prices start at £326.40 all-in.
You can fly anytime up until Sunday 15 November 2015, so the window for travel on the discounted rates is huge. (more…)
