Deal Alert: WOW Air to Iceland from $228 Round-Trip
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
WOW Air's cheap flights are available again for travelers heading to Iceland this year. Most of the discounted fares are for service from Boston (BOS), however you might be able to find a handful of deals from Baltimore (BWI).
Prices start around $228 round-trip, although tickets for the summer are a bit more expensive. 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 May, with some of the lowest prices falling on weekends. 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.

While WOW is often one of the most cost-effective ways to get to Iceland and the other destinations it serves, you might not have as comfortable experience as other carriers' products. If you're familiar with the airline and all of its rules, you should be fine, but flying on another carrier could be worth a consideration.
WOW often offers discounted fares to Iceland from the US, so if you can't book now, there will probably be another opportunity down the line. For more information, check out our WOW air flight review. And to get an idea about what you should do once you arrive, see our $99-Fare Guide to Iceland.
