Seen £79 retuen from London but Expedia shows £135? Dates?

Hi,

I've just read in a newspaper that return flights from Gatwick, Londown to Oslo can be found for £79 but I have just searched for return flights on Sept 25th (Wednesday) to return on October 2nd (Wednesday) and they show £135.

Please can anyone tell me is £79 possible? Am I choosing incompatible dates perhaps?

Thank you.

You should go to Norwegian's own web site http://www.norwegian.com/uk/ , select "show low fare calendar" to get an overview of the prices. The price I see for your dates is 109£. Other dates have lower prices, the lowest I can see for a return flight is 86£.

You could check out flight prices on http://www.flybilligst.com/index.php. Oslo airports are Oslo, Rygge and Sandefjord. Ryanair also fly Gatwick - Sandefjord(Torp)

Thank you for that!

Please can i ask are there any days of the week that seem to be cheaper to fly more than others?

To me it seems Tuesdays and Wednesdays offer the lowest fares. But fares vary from one day to another - sometimes Saturdays are cheap too, but less connections available.

In your other post you talk about snow and skiing - note that this time of year is far too early for such activities,

The site http://www.flybilligst.com/index.php shows prices as a graph so easy to pick out cheapest days. In Norwegian so try opening in Chrome browser on a PC for translation.
