I love New York! You can be forgiven for thinking that the world begins and ends in the Big Apple as its proud citizens call the city. The citizens are really a proud lot and they have a lot of reason to be. Every year and all year round, the Big Apple plays host to a throng of eager tourists whose desire is just to immerse themselves in the beauty of the city and savor its attractions. Naturally, getting to New York from Europe is quite a packet in terms of the fare. This is something the tourists always have to contend with and even though they expect cheap holidays, it is not that expensive as it can actually be much lower.
If you ask me, I will say truthfully that the expensive fares are certainly worthwhile if it is just to see the sights of New York but then why pay all that hard-earned pound sterling and euros when you can get cheap flights or fares for less? Think of seeing the Empire State Building, The Rockefeller Center, The Staten Island Ferry, the famous Brooklyn Bridge, The Bronx Zoo, the towering Statue of Liberty and Times Square amongst others while being able to compare holidays with your friends.
Carrying out research on the various booking engines a necessary first step towards getting a cheap flight to New York. There are many of them thought some of them focus mainly on airlines operating in the United States but then, they are worth checking so you can compare cheap flights.Top of the list would be Expedia.com, Travelocity.com and Orbitz.com. Of course, if you are a student and want a cheap flight to Europe, you could check sta-travel.com, ciee.org or travelcuts.com. It is not the same as getting cheap flights to Dubai.
If you also thinking of making to New York about the winter period of the year, you can get cheapest airfare and still enjoy some snow events which will make your stay there wonderful. The Frost Valley YMCA’s Straus Center is one unique opportunity to explore the extensive trail of the Catskill Forest. The downside of visiting when the tourist traffic is high is that the fares will not be too competitive so you might want to check to see if the inflow of tourists is low. You will also need to book way in advance in order to avoid the hikes in the prices and get cheapest flights. The airlines usually reward passengers who book in advance. The downside here is that since the prices are not stable, there could be a lower price applicable by the time you are ready to fly. Not to worry though, after you compare flight prices you can just call them up and request that you have the appropriate adjustment made. Many of them are civil enough to honor such requests.
If I have not mentioned that you have to book your ticket with a low cost airline, please note that I consider this to be one of the most important ways of flying cheap. Research budget airlines flying into New York from Europe and make your booking.
