Fly WOW Air to Iceland Like I Did and Experience Incredible Natural Wonders

Even if you aren’t interested in visiting any of these countries, these tickets are an inexpensive way to get to Europe.  Once you’re in Europe, it’s relatively cheap to hop around to other countries!

Note:   Return flights are more expensive.  But you could consider paying for a cheap WOW Air flight to get to Europe, and use miles and points to return!

WOW Air Tips

Link:   My Review of WOW Air

I’ve written about WOW Air, a budget airline based in Iceland.  They’re a great option for no-frills flights, with good service and clean planes.

Remember, WOW Air charges fees for seat selection, large carry-on bags, and checked bags.  You’ll get the best deal if you can pack light.

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

Folks with the Southwest Companion Pass could fly to sale cities very cheaply.  That’s because with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for almost free on both paid and award tickets.

Hotel Information

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

Check out my favorite Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and Starwood hotels in Europe!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I use 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.  

Note:  If you prefer to book paid stays, check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized!).

Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.  Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.
