There are several Stateside bargains to be had this week thanks to the US holiday.

The land of the free and home of the brave beckons for holidaymakers as the USA celebrates Independence Day. 

And we have a reason to celebrate too, as  Aer Lingus marks the occasion by offering €50 off return flights in September and October to any of its 13 North American destinations.

The airline flies direct to hotspots including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Orlando, Washington, Boston, Toronto, Hartford and Newark, Miami and recently launched routes Philadelphia and Seattle.
