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.
Iceland is alluring to travelers for many reasons including the Blue Lagoon, Northern Lights and its ever-changing weather. Also, it’s generally a very cheap destination to travel to, thanks to WOW Air.
