Hi all, this is my first post on the forum so be kind . Me and a friend are planning to backpack across the States in June travelling from NY to California over 2 months. I wanted to know whether it was possible to buy a return ticket from the UK that will land us in NY but then allow us to fly back to the UK form Cali?
I have looked at return flights to and from NY and they come up at around £390. I was thinking i could go for one of those and then maybe get an internal flight from Cali to NY at the end of the trip.
Just wanted to know if anyone has done the same or similar trip and has any advise/tips they can give me?
Not sure about the feasability of the airfare UK-NYC then CALI-UK, but I think you'll be able to find fairly cheap domestic flights LA-NYC. These are (or at least used to be last time I checked) available from about $150-$200USD one way. Not bad for a 5 or 6 hour flight I reckon. Check sites like Expedia.com (use the UK version www.expedia.co.uk as the US one does not accept non-US credt cards for flights)
Of course it's possible to book a UK-NYC then LAX-UK flights without any problems.
If you wanna fly BA, go on their web site and click on ''book multi-city".
You can also book flights on expedia.com click on "multiple destinations".
And of course if you want to fly between NYC and LAX (Los Angeles) you can get very low prices with Virgin America (and others), BUT I recommend you to try Virgin America, you'll have a wonderful journey!
If you're under 26, consider looking at STA travel..i've just booked my RTW tickets with them and they do some great deals..and you can fly to/back from any airport.
