Right now you can book a roundtrip in economy between Newark (EWR) and Rome (FCO) for $280 for travel November through March, 2018 on Norwegian Air. Flights are direct.

Norwegian is the low cost carrier that we’ve featured before for roundtrips to StockholmOslo, and Madrid in the $250-$400 range. You can also sometimes find dirt cheap roundtrips to the French Caribbean. Now they’re back at it with a cheap fare to Europe.

Newark to Rome, Three Night Roundtrip in March 

Extra Fees

All the cheapest fares are in the “Lowfare” bucket. That comes with one free carry on that weighs up to 10 kg (22 lbs.) Check out Scott’s post on one bag travel.

Everything else costs extra.

Your first checked bag is $45 each way. Your second is $50. Similarly a seat reservation is $45 each way.

Check out the food selection on long haul flights here (if you buy the Lowfare ticket, you’ll need to preorder your meal before the flight).

All the add ons are expensive, so I suggest traveling with just one carry on, eating before take off on the outbound, packing a lunch for the return, and taking whatever seat they give you for free. Then you REALLY can’t beat a $200 roundtrip to Norway or Sweden.

Check the Price In Krone, Somtetimes It’s Cheaper

Start on the Norwegian version of because sometimes prices are lower in Norwegian Krone than US Dollars. Use Google Chrome to translate the page to English. Pay with a card with no foreign transaction fees.

Past example:





This practice–buying plane tickets in foreign currencies–can save you money with other airlines as well.

This time, it’s pretty much the same price so buy in whichever currency.
