Flights to the United States vary greatly in length and cost, depending on your destination. You can be on the east coast in seven hours, but a flight to the west coast might take over 11. That said, this vast and varied nation is popular with British travellers, and fierce competition on the key routes means you can find some cheap US flights if you shop around.

There are direct flights from the UK to more than 30 US cities, including Washington DC, Chicago, Austin, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami and Boston.

Your entry point makes a difference. Assuming you avoid the summer and Christmas peaks, it's relatively easy to find cheap US flights to the east coast, particularly with low-cost carriers such as Norwegian and Jet2 in the New York market. Moving over to the west coast, you start to see bigger savings from flying indirect: a journey to San Francisco with two stops can be hundreds of pounds cheaper than a non-stop service (and you might even be glad of the chance to stretch your legs).

If you're headed to a major summer holiday destination – think Orlando – and you can't avoid the summer peaks, it's a good idea to search for flight-and-hotel package deals. They'll often work out cheaper than buying your flight and accommodation separately.
