Via The Points Guyyou can fly from several US cities to Iceland in coach starting at just $200 round-trip!

I found flights from San Francisco to Reykjavik for $260 departing April 16, 2017, and returning April 27, 2017.  These fares are valid for travel from April to June, and from September to November 2017 on certain routes.

WOW Air has released more cheap fares to Iceland!  You can get to Reykjavik for as little as $200 round-trip in coach.  But only from 5 US cities:

  • Baltimore
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • New York (EWR)
  • San Francisco

These fares are available from April to June, and from September to November 2017.  But dates are really scattered, and will continue to disappear quickly as folks buy them up!

I loved my trip to Iceland, and found the people to be some of the nicest I’ve ever met!  I highly recommend visiting.  This could be good for a last-minute spring break getaway (the cold is worth the experience!).

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.

Folks with the Southwest Companion Pass could fly to cities included in the sale 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.

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.

Use a Credit Card That Earns Bonus Miles & Points
