I wrote last week about a terrific sale on flights to Iceland (and beyond) on WOW Air. You can fly from Boston or Washington, DC (Baltimore), to Reykjavik for just $99 1-way!
Now they’ve expanded the sale! Fly to Copenhagen, London, or Paris (via Reykjavik) for just $149 from the US. And there are good deals to other European cities.
This sale is valid for travel dates from November 1, 2015, to December 15, 2015, and January 10, 2016, to March 10, 2016.
Flights returning to the US are more expensive. But this is still an excellent deal if you’re planning European travel this fall and winter!
Let’s look at where the best deals are!
What’s the Deal?

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.
You can fly from Boston and Washington, DC (Baltimore) to Reykjavik from $99 1-way. Return flights start at ~$170 (still a bargain!).
But now the sale includes $149 fares from Boston and Washington, DC, to Copenhagen, London, and Paris!
Other good deals include:
- Amsterdam – ~$207
- Berlin – ~$207 (~$228 from Boston)
- Dublin – $199
- Stockholm – ~$210
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.
Check out my Iceland trip report! And see how I discovered that Icelanders are some of the nicest people in the world.
Use the Right Credit Card!

What About Hotels?
But in other European cities, you have lots of options!
And here are some of my favorite Starwood hotels in Europe. You might also consider booking a Choice Hotel, because many of their expensive European hotels cost relatively few points (especially in Scandinavia).
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.
The WOW Air fare sale has been expanded! Fly from Boston and Washington, DC (Baltimore), to Reykjavik, Iceland, for $99 1-way. Or to Copenhagen, London, or Paris for just $149 1-way!
Return flights are more expensive, but can still be an excellent deal. Or consider booking your flight home with miles & points instead!
These fares won’t last long, so book soon if you’re interested. And let me know if you book a ticket!
