    Default Taking the missus to New York for her 30th

    My missus hits the big 30 next year and really wants to go New York for her present. I want to get it booked early to avoid having to pay all of the money upfront. The only problem is every website I look on it costs upwards of 3000 for 7 nights!

    Anyone know of any cheaper travel agents or websites that they can recommend??

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Why not take her to York instead? There's a Viking museum.

    I assume 3k is for business or 1st class flights?

    If that's for economy I hope they bought you a drink first, because someone is trying to fuck you.

    I think that 3k was hotel AND flights? 3k would just cover First Class flights to NY.

    Better deals are available depending on time of year, hotel type etc.

    Me and my girlfiend did a week in New york last year for around 800 quid each and that was over the thanksgiving holiday weekend.

    I travel a lot and normally use Kayak.com to search for the best flights (Heathrow is normally the cheapest option from UK-NYC). Then I found a really good deal for the hotel through lastminute.com.

    I have also had some awesome deals using Asda Travel and TravelSupermarket.com.

    Hope that helps.
