Editor’s note: The team at The Points Guy loves to travel, but now is not the time for unnecessary trips. Health officials note that the fastest way to return to normalcy is to stop coming in contact with others. That includes ceasing travel. We are publishing travel deals because we should all use this time to think about and plan our next adventures. TPG doesn’t advise booking trips for travel until the late spring or early summer — and even then be mindful of cancellation policies.

In a time when travel is on pause, it’s good to look forward and plan for future adventures. And with that, New York is more affordable than ever this autumn, with fares from £218 return with Virgin. The route is one of the airline’s new routes for 2020 from Gatwick (LGW).

The fare is available throughout September and October 2020. Remember, these are Virgin’s lowest Economy Light fares, which means checked luggage isn’t included. Upgrading to Economy Classic is £90 each way and gives you a checked bag, the ability to choose your seat at any time and the ability to upgrade your ticket with Flying Club miles.
