Friday Deal Tip- WOW Air
In case you haven't heard of WOW air yet, I want to let you in on the secret. If you have always dreamed of flying to Europe, but haven't been able to justify the cost of a plane ticket, this might be your chance. WOW air is a discount airline similar to Southwest, Spirit, or Frontier. You have the ticket cost and then you have to pay for everything else as add-ons, from luggage to seat assignments to food. This way you can have more control over your ticket price and not pay for things you don't need. WOW air has its hub in Reykjavik, Iceland and flies to several places in Europe, the U.S., Canada, and Israel. Right now, they are also running a special spring deal of 25% off (see below for code).
I heard about WOW air from a friend who used it to fly to Germany from BWI and her family was very pleased with the price and planes. My husband and I have been wanting to do something for our 20th wedding anniversary, so I was able to get round trip tickets for us to fly from BWI to Iceland for $350/person. That was after adding on a carry-on bag for each of us and paying to pick our seats. It's hard to find domestic flights for that price to some cities, let alone to Europe. They have one-way flights starting at $99.99 to Reykjavik and $149.99 from New York to London.
You can even catch a glimpse of their planes in the first episode of the current season of The Amazing Race.
I look forward to sharing about our experience flying on WOW air in a few months. Where would you like to travel? Share your dream destinations in the comments!
