What’s the Deal?

I’ve written about WOW Air, a budget airline based in Iceland.  While you shouldn’t expect a luxury experience on their flights, their service is excellent and their planes are clean and new.

You can fly from Boston or Washington, DC (Baltimore) to Reykjavik, Iceland, from $99 1-way.  Return flights start at ~$171, which is still very cheap!

Or fly to 1 of these European cities (connecting through Reyjavik) starting at $149 1-way:

  • Amsterdam
  • Berlin
  • Bristol (new!)
  • Dublin
  • Copenhagen
  • London
  • Paris
  • Stockholm

Fly Onward to Berlin Starting at Just $149 1-Way

Travel dates for most destinations are January 10, 2016, to March 10, 2016, except for Bristol and Stockholm.  Sale fares are available to those cities in May and September, 2016.

Sale fares are only available on certain flights.  So you might have to be flexible.

You might consider taking advantage of these cheap fares flying TO Europe, then book an award ticket for your return trip!

Keep in mind, WOW Air charges fees for seat selection, large carry-on bags, and checked bags.  If you can pack light, you’ll get the best deal.

Here’s my full Iceland trip report!  I learned Icelanders are some of the warmest, kindest folks in the world.

Use the Right Credit Card!

Don’t forget to book your flights with a credit card that earns bonus miles & points for airline purchases, like:

What About Hotels?

There aren’t many chain hotels in Iceland.  Only Best Western, Club Carlson, and Hilton have hotels in Reykjavik (although there are lots of independent hotels).

If you have the Citi Prestige card, it might be worth checking for hotel rooms available with the 4th night free perk.

If you’re traveling beyond Reykjavik, you’ll have more hotel choices.  Check out my favorite Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and Starwood hotels in Europe!

I like using Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper to find hotels that can be booked with points.

Check out my posts on all the ways to earn Hilton and Hyatt points!

You Can Earn Hilton Points From Their Credit Cards and These Award Programs

Note:  If you’re booking a paid stay, it’s worth checking discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  Keep in mind, you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).

If you prefer a more local experience, Airbnb is a great way to save money, especially for longer stays.  Here are my tips for getting a better Airbnb price and how to choose a good (and safe) Airbnb.

Bottom Line

With WOW Air’s latest fare sale, you can fly from Boston and Washington, DC (Baltimore), to Reykjavik, Iceland, for $99 1-way.

Or fly beyond Reykjavik to 8 European cities starting at $149 1-way.  Return flights in both instances cost more, but are still a good deal.

This is only a bargain if you can pack light (because WOW Air charges substantial baggage fees).  I flew WOW Air on my trip to Iceland and had an enjoyable experience!

These fares won’t last long.  Let me know if you book a ticket!
