Fly in economy to get a bargain January flight.

The US reopened to foreign travelers last month, resulting in a surge in bookings from Brits looking for trips.

Prices rose by up to 300 percent as more people booked their trips abroad through airline websites.

A one-way ticket from the UK to New York in November cost up to £1,777.

If you’re looking for a cheaper city break, two-night holidays including flights from £22pp are available to destinations like Krakow and Prague.
