With the likes of California and Florida becoming ever more popular among Brits as summer holiday destinations, airlines have raised their prices accordingly. These 2 deals can help you visit Miami and LA at much more affordable prices this summer.
There are actually 2 separate deals available here. The first is a deal that is available on select dates in August and the second is in fact not restricted to the summer period and is bookable for dates from April to August 2017:
I went to lastminute.com and ran a random search for flights from London to Miami leaving on the 22nd August returning on the 31st August.
The cheapest non-stop economy flights from London-Miami are currently circa £780pp for a trip on those dates.
However you can save £400 and bring the price right down to roughly £390 by booking this deal with Swiss/Austrian Airlines as displayed below, and making brief stops on the outbound and inbound journeys.
The second deal is an interesting Premium Economy deal with Scandinavian carrier SAS.
They are offering non-stop flights from Stockholm to Los Angeles for as little as £640pp. This rises by about £100 during August but remains a good deal.
I found this price for a trip from 16th-24th May with little trouble.
– By way of reference, the cheapest direct flights from London in Premium Economy are just under £1000 on these dates.
– To get to and from Stockholm you can pick up separate cheap flights from London for £115 return. Alternatively you could book an RFS Avios redemption that would cost 13,000 Avios and £35.
Alternatively I pulled up this price for a 2 week trip in August:
– By way of reference, I found prices in Premium Economy out of London on these dates were hovering around £1100pp.
– To get to and from Stockholm you can pick up separate cheap flights from London for £84 return. Alternatively you could book an RFS Avios redemption that would cost 15,000 Avios and £35.
