Airlines have never competed to such an extent as in 2017 and the trend looks set to continue into 2018. Gone are the days of only the rich being able to fly transatlantic; if you can bear to forgo much luggage, you can fly transatlantic for under $100.
Norwegian and WOW Air, are just two major players who have entered the long-haul, transatlantic market and the airline LEVEL will join then with cheap $100ish flights from Barcelona to Boston and Paris to Montreal & New York City from March 2018. But let’s not forget the legacy carriers who are competing with sales like the Virgin Atlantic $280 round trip transatlantic flights.
These crazy flight prices are not restricted to transatlantic. Scoot has launched low-cost flights to Hawaii from Singapore and Japan with prices starting at $89, and Norwegian have launched flights from cities like New York down to the sunshine in the Caribbean for peanuts too, along with flights to South America. Finally, United are launching direct flights from San Fransisco to Tahiti which will open up this destination to a whole new bunch of travellers.
Let’s not forget my mention of Bitcoin at the bottom of this article. This innovation in decentralisation and incredible investment opportunity is, IMHO, something to grab hold of for 2018. Early 2018 is likely to be the last moment that the ordinary man (or woman) will be able to afford a whole Bitcoin, so grab one while you still can. I also outline how to get a fraction of a Bitcoin for FREE.
Wherever you are in the world, 2018 will be the time to fly and here is our pick of the best deals currently out there:
Virgin Atlantic Flight Sale: London From $280 Round Trip
Virgin Atlantic launched it’s US & UK Winter sale. They have been one of our favourite ways to fly although the disaster with their Dreamliner engines has made them a slightly less appealing choice lately.
This “fabulous flight sale” starts with prices from $280 return from Boston to London & $318 return from LA to London on their US site. The UK offers start at £385 return from the UK to America in their UK Winter sale
Check their route map for the full low-down on where they fly.

More goodies from Norwegian Airlines as it launches flights direct from New York JFK to Amsterdam and Madrid and from Los Angeles to Milan and Madrid. The flights will be on Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. The cost? $299 one way from Los Angeles to Milan or Madrid. Flights launch between May and July 2018.

All these fares are super cheap and can be found on Norwegian Airlines.
United To Tahiti
Not a deal as such but a brand new destination for those based in and around San Fransisco. This week, United Airlines announced that is launching flights from San Francisco and Papeete in Tahiti, in 2018. This nonstop service will be three times a week on United’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner beginning Oct. 30, 2018, through March 28, 2018.
Europe To New York €235 With Lufthansa
Lufthansa has truly amazing deals out of Stockholm and Oslo to America. The deals are available from January thru June of 2018, and then again after the summer. Lufthansa is an impressive legacy airline and if you have any intention of travelling from Europe to the States this year, this is a great option. This was my pick of Stockholm to New York on google flights although you can have a play around with destinations as the offers are available from Stockholm, London, Oslo, Paris. These destinations also offer cheap flights to Los Angeles.
New York to Cancun for $279
A great price if you fancy some sun. Again, there is no trick in booking this; just make the booking on the Delta Airlines website.

Club1Hotels offers one of the cheapest ways to book 4, 4.5 and 5-star hotels worldwide. Their rates are close to wholesale and you can become a Club1Hotels member for free for a limited time.
Even better, they have a new NEW BEST RATE GUARANTEE; They say “In an instance where better rates are offered elsewhere, we will beat that rate by $10 per night for 3-Star hotels, $20 per night for 4-star hotels and $25 per night for 5-star hotels immediately.” You have nothing to loose!
FREE Bitcoin & Free Airline Miles With Bitcoin
Why not invest in Bitcoin today and use your profits to pay for your future flights? Seeing as Bitcoin seems to be on a roll, with a current price of around $15,000 and predictions from the Director of Payal, this millionaire and this expert all predicting that Bitcoin will be worth $150,000 in a year or two, there is still a chance to make a quick buck!
If you do decide to buy Bitcoin, make sure you set it up using a coinbase referral link like mine. Once you buy or sell $100 USD (£76) of digital currency or more, you will get $10 USD (£7) of free Bitcoin (as will your referrer, which on the link above would be me). I have also found Bitcoin to be a great way of boosting my airline miles. To the moon…
