Because of its importance to many airlines and a bevy of nonstop destinations, London-Heathrow airport is a battleground for cheap direct flights to many destinations. Oneworld stalwart British Airways, Star Alliance member United Airlines and Skyteam member Delta Air Lines and its associate Virgin Atlantic are outbidding each other for nonstop roundtrips between London-Heathrow and the United States, selling flights as low as €292 (~£259). Unfortunately, none of these fares includes checked bags.
You can reach the following destinations for really attractive nonstop roundtrip prices:
- Boston at €292 (~£259) with British Airways (BA), Delta Air Lines (DL) or Virgin Atlantic (VS).
- New York EWR at €307 (~£272) with BA or United Airlines (UA).
- Miami at €351 (~£311) with American Airlines (AA), BA or VS.
- San Francisco at €353 (~£313) with BA or UA.
- Los Angeles at €360 (~£319) with AA, BA, UA or VS.

Information & Tips for USA
The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.
Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements
The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA) for about €12, you don’t need a visa for entry.
The Best Time to Visit
Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.
The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
