Admit it: you always wanted to spend some days to New York :) But probably the flights were already super expensive and it was better to tick off this metropolis from your ‘places-to-visit’ list. No need of that, because I have found a great flight bargain on norwegian.com. The cheapest flights are next year on 20/01/2015 until 03/02/2015. Means that you will have 14 nights to discover New York from the ground to the highest building. The price is only £329 per person. But you can change the dates as you want to, just check out the calender.
The price is without checked luggage, but one bag costs £25 each way, so in total £50 extra. That’s a total of only £379 per person then.
I suggest you to look on trivago.co.uk for appropriate hotel bargains. Certainly there will be an accommodation that comes up to your standards, so feel free to create your own New York experience. I’m sure as you’re going to save a lot of money with the flights that you’re going to find a nice hotel. Just keep an eye on the location and pick a location that is quiet central, so that you can benefit of the excellent public transportation here in New York. Many interesting sights can be easily reached by metro. Depending on what you prefer the prices for a decent accommodation start from £38 per night. Just check them out and pick the hotel that takes your fancy.
New York is a metropolis which already speaks for itself. So once you’re here visit of course the Times Square where you can marvel at the iconic illuminated billboards and make your way to the Broadway theatre district. Just check the shows that will take place during your visit and save your tickets e.g. for Les Miserable or for Phantom of the Opera. And for all the shopping victims amongst us: be happy to go to the 5th Avenue and stroll to Tiffany & Co … even if you’re eyeing not buying, it’s worth the visit alone!. Last but not the least visit the most famous attraction here in New York: the Statue of Liberty across the Hudson River. Doesn’t matter what you want to do here in New York, this city never sleeps and has it all!
FYI: you need a valid passport to enter the United States and all British citizens travel under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP). Therefore you need to provide your details at least 72 hours before your travel with the ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation). You can apply the information online directly on the ESTA website. Should you need further info check gov.uk.
Please note that your return flight arrives on 05/12/2014 in Birmingham, so you have to add one more day to this journey.
