Norwegian Air Offers $65 Fare From USA To Europe

OK, don’t get too excited. First of all, it’s the usual airline routine of advertising a base price. Then, with taxes, baggage, food, drink and other fees, the actual one-way, out-of-pocket cost is about $120. Of course, that’s still a fantastic bargain, with regular airline overseas prices starting at $500 and soaring skyward.

Also, the special low fare is for a limited number of flights only to and from several northeast US airports and destinations in Europe. And Norwegian may end the promotion at any time when bookings get heavier. For more info, go to www.norwegian.com

Before and during wanderings, don’t broadcast your ongoing itinerary on social media. For example, you post daily schedule lists, sightseeing video and photos on Facebook to send to family and friends online.

Q: Is Last Minute Booking Best Way to Get Travel Bargains? PDF Print E-mail

We just returned from a cruise where we thought we got a good price because it was billed as last minute. However, when we checked with other passengers, we learned we had paid as much as 50% more than those who booked early. What’s the best way to get lowest travel prices? PNJ, New London CT

A: Cruise lines often offer lower prices if you book within a week of departure, so they won’t sail with empty cabins. However, you’ll learn that the advertised low prices didn’t include taxes, service fees and other add-on charges. Before you book a cruise, thoroughly research daily cruise advice and price deal sites on the internet and/or by dealing with your experienced local travel agent.
