Here’s the knock-on effect of the Brexit vote: airfares to the UK from the US are at their cheapest in at least three years.

An average round-trip fare from US airports into London’s was $687.36 by July 3, according to airfare-tracker Hopper. That’s a 14% drop since the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, which sent the pound down to its lowest level in more than three decades.

But it’s no secret and because of that, it may not last too long. Searches for flights to the UK following the Brexit vote surged close to 60%, Hopper says. Travelzoo also saw a rise in searches—and some tour firms are unveiling packages to the UK for the first time.

So act fast if you want to load up on that cheap Burberry.
