Better start packing, because you won’t have any excuse not to take a trip after this.
Back in October, Canadians practically jumped for joy when they learned Iceland-based airline Wow Air was offering rock-bottom rates for flights between Europe and Canada. Which means we’re sure everyone is about to go nuts again, because the airline is now offering even more of those deals.
One-way tickets from Toronto or Montreal to Iceland start at $99–and yes, that price includes taxes and fees. Flights depart Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport on May 8 and Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson Airport on May 30. Depending on the date you select, $199 one-way flights are also available to other European destinations like London, Dublin, Paris and Frankfurt. Although they will all include a stopover in Keflavík International Airport in Iceland.
Besides the stopover, the other catch is that, like any discount airline, you pay for literally every other luxury on top of the ticket. The $99 charge will get you a seat on the plane. But if you want to check a bag, for example, that’ll be an extra $80 each way–effectively doubling the price of the original fare.
For a trip across the Atlantic though, that’s still bargain pricing. A flight with Air Canada from Toronto to Amsterdam will cost you about $1,600 on the same day Wow Air offers it for $199. So even with all of the add-ons and extra costs, you really can’t go wrong.
And to that, friends, we say “Wow.” You can check out the airline’s deals right here.
