Remember, WOW Air charges extra for seat selection, large carry-on bags, and checked bags. So to get the best deal, skip the seat selection, pack a carry-on that fits under your seat, and don’t check bags.
That said, even with added fees, these fares are a good deal! Do the math and see if it works for you!
Departing From Baltimore
I found $99 1-way flights on WOW Air to Iceland most Mondays and Saturdays from October to December, 2016. Return flights start at $149.
There are cheap $159 1-way fares to Amsterdam, Bristol, Copenhagen, Dublin, Frankfurt, London, and Paris available, too. Travel dates are in April, May, or fall 2016 depending on the destination.
Departing From Boston
Fly between Boston and Reykjavik for $99 1-way from September to December 2016. I found these cheap fares nearly every Monday and Saturday in that timeframe.
Fly back for $149 or more depending on the dates. And the same European cities are also on sale starting at $159.
For example, you could fly from Boston to Amsterdam 1-way for $159 with a 90-minute stop in Reykjavik on October 18, 2016, and attend the Amsterdam Music Festival!
Fly back on WOW Air starting at $255. Or use miles to book a 1-way flight on another airline instead!
Visiting Iceland? Here’s What You Should Know!
Use the Right Credit Card If You Book
Don’t forget to use a credit card that earns bonus miles & points for airline purchases, like:
- Chase Sapphire Preferred – 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 you spend on travel and terrific trip delay insurance
- Premier Rewards Gold Card From American Express – 3X AMEX Membership Rewards points per $1 you spend on airfare purchased directly from airlines, although I’ve found you almost always get the points even if you book through a 3rd party site like Orbitz!
- Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard – get 2% back when you redeem miles for $100+ travel purchases, including airfare
- Citi Prestige – 3X Citi ThankYou points per $1 you spend on airfare
- Citi ThankYou Premier – 3X Citi ThankYou points per $1 you spend on travel
Where to Stay?
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 safe and comfortable Airbnb.
