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.
They have released super low transatlantic prices for folks who want to get to Europe for cheap! You can get great deals on routes like:
- Pittsburgh to London for for ~$150 one-way
- San Francisco to Reykjavik for ~$130 one-way
- Boston to Paris for ~$150 one-way
- New York to Berlin for ~$150 one-way
- Chicago, Miami, and New York to Reykjavik for ~$100 one-way
And don’t forget, if your hometown isn’t included in the sale, folks with the Southwest Companion Pass could fly to these cities very cheaply. Because with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for almost free on both paid and award tickets.

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

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.
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.
