Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
WOW Air is once again offering incredible fares from several US cities to Iceland, with prices starting from just $220 round-trip. You can fly from Baltimore (BWI), Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX), Newark (EWR) and San Francisco (SFO) to Reykjavik (KEF) with departures available from April through June 2017.
Keep in mind that WOW Air is a budget airline, so you'll be paying extra if you want to choose your seat or bring a large carry-on bag. Make sure you use Google Flights to find availability from your desired city, as the departure dates are scattered.
