WOW Air is at it again!

You can fly from Boston or Washington, DC (Baltimore), to Reykjavik, Iceland, for only $99 1-way!

Flights returning to the US are more expensive.  But this is still an excellent deal for European travel this winter!

Fly to Iceland for Only $99!

Let’s look at where the best deals are!

What’s the Deal?

I’ve written before about great deals to Europe on WOW Air.  And I flew WOW Air to Iceland and had a very good experience.

WOW Air is a budget airline based in Iceland.  They’re not fancy, but their service is excellent and their planes are clean and new.  And now, there’s another great sale!

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

Travel dates for Boston are available through mid-December 2015.  And if you depart from Washington, DC (Baltimore), the $99 fares are available through the end of January 2016.

Under $100 to Iceland Is a Fantastic Deal! There Are Still Lots of Seats Available

Flights to other European destinations, like Amsterdam, Berlin, and London, are also on sale starting at $149 1-way.

Return flights are more expensive.  And keep in mind, WOW Air charges fees for seat selection, large carry-on bags, and checked bags.  So this is only a good deal if you can pack light.

If you plan to rent a car in Iceland, check out my post on how to find the best price!  And remember to bring a card with chip-and-PIN capability to get gas!

Check out my Iceland trip report!  And see how I discovered that Icelanders are some of the nicest people in the world.

Pay With the Right Credit Card!

Don’t forget to pay with a card that earns bonus points for travel or airfare purchased directly from airlines:

What About Hotels?

There are few chain hotels in Iceland.  Only Best Western, Club Carlson, and Hilton have hotels in Reykjavik (although there are lots of independent hotels).  It’s worth checking if you can find a hotel room available with the 4th night free perk if you have the Citi Prestige card.

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.

Here are some of my top picks for Hilton hotels in Europe.  Check out my post on all the ways to earn Hilton points!

Transfer Points From Other Programs to Hilton for a Stay in Reykjavik or Other Cities in Europe

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

Or if you’re feeling adventurous or want a more local experience, Airbnb is a great way to save money, especially for longer stays.  Here are my tips for getting a better price on Airbnb!    And how to choose a good (and safe) Airbnb.

Bottom Line

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

Return flights are more expensive (starting at ~$171), but can still be an excellent deal.  Or consider booking your flight home with miles & points instead!

You might even decide to fly into mainland Europe to keep exploring, although folks in Iceland are so kind you may want to stay! 🙂

This is only a bargain if you can pack light (because WOW Air charges substantial baggage fees).  I experienced WOW Air on my trip to Iceland and enjoyed the flights!

These fares won’t last long, so book soon if you’re interested.  Let me know if you book a ticket!
