Here’s another dirt cheap way to reach Europe!

WOW Air is selling flights starting at ~$69 one-way!  I found fares from San Francisco & Boston to Reykjavik for ~$69 one-way.  And great deals to from the US to Amsterdam, Stockholm, and London starting at ~$89 one-way!

These deals are only valid for round-trip flights.  But you can still find some amazing prices!

Folks In San Francisco Can Get Great Deals to Iceland With This Sale!

How to Book It

Link:   WOW Air

WOW Air is a budget airline based in Iceland.  They’re a great option for no-frills flights, with good service and clean planes.  And they’re selling flights to Europe for super cheap!  There are lots of different routes available for ~$69 to ~$89 one-way:

  • San FranciscoPittsburgh, Boston, and Washington D.C. to Reykjavik for under ~$69 one-way
  • San Francisco to Copenhagen for ~$89 one-way
  • Chicago to Amsterdam for ~$89 one-way
  • New York to Edinburgh for ~$89 one-way

Fare dates can be a little sporadic and are available into fall 2018.  And there seems to be fewer of the cheapest fares over summer 2018.

These prices are only for folks who create a “MyWOW” account with WOW Air.  And sale appears to only be valid for the outbound segment of a round-trip flight.

You can expect the return flight to be more costly.  Still, I found flights to Iceland for ~$190 round-trip.  That’s hard to beat!

You can search the WOW Air website to book your flights.  Or see my posts on how to use Google Flights and ITA Matrix to find sale dates.

WOW Air Tips

Link:   My Review of WOW Air

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.

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 these 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 elite 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.
