Virgin Atlantic Has Flights To New York For Under £300
Virgin Atlantic is offering return flights to New York for less than £300 ($400) per person.
As well as the Big Apple, Virgin is also offering budget flights to Los Angeles, Washington, Miami, and San Francisco, so there's tonnes of choice.
The best deals are mostly running from March to September 2021.
The Mirror reports that the cheapest prices are for return flights from Manchester to New York in Economy Light class.
If you can stretch to it, though, there are also plenty of cheap deals for Premium - the one below First Class - with return flights going for as little as £500 per person between Manchester and New York.
And if you're particularly tall, it will be worth every single penny.
Or if you've already been the the US and want to try somewhere new, fear not.
Virgin is also offering cut-price deals on flights to Barbados, Jamaica, Cuba and Antigua.

Now, if you're looking to head down under for a bit of sun next year, however, you will almost certainly have to have been vaccinated beforehand.
The Australian airline boss Alan Joyce also reckons that proof of vaccination will be a general requirement of many airlines as things start to return to something like normal after this wretched pandemic.
Joyce has previously stated that air travel won't resume fully until there is a safe vaccine available for staff and travellers, but went beyond that to say vaccination will become a necessity for those who wish to travel.
Speaking on A Current Affair on Monday (23 November), Joyce said: "We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say that, for international travellers, we will ask people to have a vaccination before they get on the aircraft.
"Whether you need that domestically, we will have to see with Covid-19 and the market but certainly, for international visitors coming out [of Australia] and people leaving the country we think that's a necessity."
And while some of the anti-vaxxers might simply assume they can fly on other airlines, Joyce believes this rule will be applied by any carrier, not just Qantas.
He added: "I think that's going to be a common thing talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe."
If the Covid-19 vaccines currently being trialled are successful, Joyce has stated he does expect to see international travel return to something approximating normal by the end of 2021.
