Search & Book

This offer is valid until March 17, 2020. You can book flights from November 21 to November 28, 2020 and December 18, 2020 to January 2, 2021. The minimum stay requirement is 3 days. You can stay up to 12 months. Stopovers are not permitted.

Some of these fares can be booked exclusively through OTAs, while others are only available at the issuing airlines’ website. Because all Oneworld carriers work together on this fare, airlines issuing the tickets and operating the flights can be vastly different. The best way is to search for dates on Google Flights (instructions) and book through airline websites, if possible.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend to book with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

  1. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

    If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.

    This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
  2. Baggage Fees
    Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

Mileage

Tickets are mostly issued in booking class I, as discounted Business Class fare. Because ticket issuing and operating airlines vary greatly, please inform yourself carefully which airlines will credit how many miles. This example is for the above mentioned €1,335 ticket to New York:

  • 16,620 on China Southern Sky Pearl Club
  • 13,850 on Finnair Plus
  • 10,320 on SriLankan FlySmiles
  • 10,320 on Etihad Guest
  • 10,320 on Alaska Mileage Plan
  • 10,320 on Royal Jordanian Royal Club
  • 8,600 on LATAM Pass
  • 8,600 on S7 Airlines Priority Club
  • 8,600 on Iberia Plus
  • 8,600 on British Airways Executive Club
  • 8,600 on Malaysia Airlines Enrich
  • 8,600 on Japan Airlines Mileage Bank
  • 8,600 on Asia Miles
  • 6,880 on Qatar Airways Privilege Club

Hotels

Hotels are fairly expensive in the US. Therefore it really makes sense to especially compare prices, but also location and reviews. You definitely want to get the best bang for your bucks. We would recommend using our favorite hotel booking platform for that:

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.

Currency

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.
