Cyber Monday Sale: $220 Roundtrip Nonstop – Toronto or Montreal to Reykjavik, Iceland

Deal Link:
Price:
220
Retailer:
WOW Air
Some copy/paste from the previous thread since the deal is pretty similar (except just much cheaper now):

WOW Air has their Toronto (YYZ) and Montreal (YUL) to Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF) nonstop flights down to $220 roundtrip!

There is excellent availability for this fare from both cities from January 2018 through March 2018. Check the deal link for sample dates and details on how to book with promo code WOWCYBERMONDAY

Keep in mind that WOW Air doesn’t include any carry-on or checked bags, advanced seat selection or meals on their flights without additional fees...but it's $220!

And this is a pretty good time of year to check out the northern lights.

Refer to the previous thread for details on Iceland travel and WOW Air

Similar climate to say Toronto/Southern Ontario, which for Iceland means limited services/restaurants open, tough road conditions to get to sights, and generally not the most pleasant time to visit unless you're interested in the northern lights.

I was there in January this year. It was cold but nothing unbearable. There was only 5-6 hours of daylight when I was there though, the sun came up around 11am.

I really don't understand why people buy these ultra low cost tickets to Iceland, thinking that they're getting a very low cost travel, when Ireland has one of the highest costs of living in the entire world. Most of it looks like barren thundra and there really isn't that much to see either.

Wow... you get a ticket for that price, but not a seat. Having a seat is a $13 minimum upcharge

I think you've been to the wrong part of Iceland... or you went there for the wrong reasons...

you go to Iceland for the landscape and outdoor activities. if all you want is urban sightseeing, you are in the wrong country. yes, Iceland is expensive which is why it's best to grocery shop and cook than eat out

I am assuming you haven't been to Iceland; I went in November and its **** beautiful. Just because its expensive when youre there, doesnt mean people wont appreciate saving a few hundred on a flight when compared to the national flag carriers. I did.

wow no carry on bag even included

so +13x2 for seats, 60x2 for checked in bag = 146

220 quickly turns into 366

i'd argue that $366 is still a great price for Iceland!

Beauty is in the of the beholder... It is barren in some parts but it's also punctuated by jawdroppingly beautiful glaciers, rock formations, waterfalls, hot springs, and lush landscapes in the spring/summer.

Not true. A seat is assigned during check-in free of charge if one chooses not to pay for a reserved one. This is the norm for most budget airlines/fares.

A lot of people complain about the lack of carry-on for the basic fare, but unless you plan on buying loads of souvenirs a 30L backpack is good enough as a personal item for a one week trip. It's definitely do-able for April/May when the weather is warmer. Layers and packing cubes are the way to go.
