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.
Flights to Iceland are on sale with prices starting from just $190 round-trip. You can fly from Baltimore (BWI), Boston (BOS), Newark (EWR), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), Chicago (ORD), Pittsburgh (PIT) and San Francisco (SFO) to Reykjavik (KEF) on WOW Air with cheap flights available from August 2017 through March 2018. You’ll definitely want to use Google Flights when searching, as some of the cheaper fares are scattered throughout the calendar. Keep in mind that WOW is a low-cost carrier (we’ve had good experiences with WOW), so you’ll be charged if you want to pick a seat or bring a large carry-on or checked bag.
