Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
Cheap WOW Air flights are available once again for travelers heading to Iceland this year. The discounted fares are for service from Boston (BOS), Baltimore (BWI), and Newark (EWR). Prices start around $250 round-trip, with departures available from October through March 2017. Keep in mind, though, that WOW is a budget airline, so you’ll have to pay extra fees for things like checked bags or choosing a seat, but there’s still plenty of room for savings.
This deal is available for dates sporadically throughout the year beginning in October, with some of the lowest prices falling on Mondays and Tuesdays. Additionally, WOW’s prices do appear in Google Flights even though it’s a budget airline, so be sure to take advantage of that tool.
