Fly to London via Iceland for ~$516 Round-Trip, With a Free Stopover in Reykjavik!

Here’s my trip report from my visit to Iceland.  I learned Icelanders are some of the kindest folks in the world!

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

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

Airbnb is also worth checking on a visit to Iceland, especially for longer stays.  Here’s how to choose a safe and comfortable Airbnb.

What If You’re Not in 1 of These Cities?

Southwest – If you need more Southwest points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to Southwest.  Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, a friend can fly with you for (almost) free!

British Airways – If you’re a short flight away from an included city, you can save miles by using British Airways Avios points to book an award flight on American Airlines.

Chase Ultimate Rewards points , American Express Membership Rewards points, and Starwood Preferred Guest points transfer to British Airways.

Which Card to Use?

Remember to pay with a card that will earn you bonus points:

Link:   Hot Deals – Hotel Credit Cards

If you book a cheap flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!

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

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
