Virgin Atlantic runs some very attractive package offers between London and New York with one catch – you need to book them in pairs. If you’re looking to take a romantic holiday away, have a family of 4, or build a dope buddy trip, it’s a really attractive way to hop across the pond. Note…these deals are out of London.
With the packages, you get roundtrip economy airfare + 3 nights accommodations and the deals start at under 400 pounds per person. That is just flat out ridiculous.
- New York
Let’s take a look at the New York Deals
Looking at January/February there was one hotel that popped in under 400 pounds per person. I’ve personally never stayed, nor know anyone who has stayed at the Z NYC Hotel, but my interest goes to a few of the slightly more expensive options.
Have a few extra bucks to spare? Look at the posh hotels you can lock down for roughly 100 pounds more.
These are just a few that I chose, there are many, many more to check out.
I just stayed at the Intercontinental Barclay and can attest that it’s a great property in a very good location. 500 pounds per person for a flight and 3 nights is a wonderful deal. I’ve also stayed at the Essex House and its location is very hard to beat.
The big thing to note here is that these are economy lite fares. No checked bag, no upgrades, no seat selection.
A breakdown of Virgin’s Economy fares.
How much extra is Economy Classic with a free checked bag and seat selection? It depends, but can be pretty cheap. These should be eligible for upgrade as well ( getting clarification on this).
Interested? These deals run through September 30th, 2019. Go here and play around with dates, but some truly fantastic deals can be had
